6 years ago I began training a woman in her early 50’s. She had been hurt doing an exercise program a past personal trainer had given her. She was incredibly skeptical about what we could do together. She needed/wanted to lose weight and had some musculoskeletal issues that needed to be taken into consideration. We went through the assessment together and over time we slowly learned what she was capable of and began to see how hard she could be pushed without making it too drastic or impossible.
