In episode 24 of the KIPS Personal Trainer Application Podcast we have a topic that every personal trainer has had to plan for… training the male client in the 35-55 age range. In the fitness industry we hear about training active adults, training young athletes, but what about the male client that is working 40+ hours a week and looking to stay healthy? Our guest is Nick Clayton who has had stops in the fitness industry as a personal trainer, working in sport performance, was at NSCA for 8-years, and more recently as the COO of the Pain Free Performance Certification. Nick’s educational background is in exercise science with an MBA as well, and those definitely shaped his responses in this episode.

Topics discussed in this episode:

  • Physiological commonalities with the male 35-55 population.
  • Three of the most common issues uncovered in the assessment.
  • Programming when working with a male aged 35+.
  • Assessments for Weekend Warriors
