Client learning preferences

When training a client it is important to keep in mind how that client learns. If not, time could be wasted on the client trying to figure out what you are teaching. For instance, if the client learns better by doing something, and you are telling them how to perform an exercise movement correctly, chances are they may not pick up the information as quickly.

There are three main learning preferences people fit into. They include:

Auditory-those that learn from listening/hearing
Visual-those that learn through watching/seeing
Kinesthetic-those that learn by doing/performing

By discussing with the client during the assessment what type of learning style they feel is most suitable for them can not only save time, but help prevent the client from feeling overwhelmed during the first training sessions.
