And rightly so.
Taking attention away from a client could have multi-fold repercussions.
1: (Most Important!) Liability.
Although Pilates gear seems rather straightforward, there are a few scenarios that are potentially dangerous. Keep an eye open during these moments, although one should treat the entire system as such.
2: Portray confidence.
A successful training session combines expertise with enthusiasm. Expertise is a natural combo of skill and longevity, but enthusiasm combines sincere care with expertise. Eye contact helps to increase the bond!
3: Show that you care.
You may be special to your client, but eventually the neglect will wear thin. Don’t look around; don’t look at the clock; don’t keep looking at your reflection in the mirror; etc.
Focus! On Bothofus!
