To train athletes you need to think like and athlete
An interview with GYROTONIC® trainer Melanie Rinaldi
When any fitness professional begins training a new client we need to find out their current condition, fitness history and their goals. For most of us our clients’ goals are fairly simple: I want to lose some weight; I want to improve my golf game; I want to get rid of this nagging back pain. But when you’re training Olympic level or professional athletes, the expectations from the client are higher and more specific.
Trainer Melanie Rinaldi is a former diver on the Canadian national team and an NCAA competitive diver. She comes from a background of high performance athletics so she understands the mindset of these types of athletes. And that shows in her intake process. I sat down with Melanie at her Miami studio and talked story.
If you’re in Miami or headed toward it, get in touch with Melanie and her great studio Rinaldi Performance.
