Don’t sleep on this episode if you want better client results these client sleep tips come directly from America’s sleep expert. He gives more than 400 appearances a year and has published multiple NYTimes bestsellers. He’s also contributed to the You Still Got It, Girl! Chapter on sleep. So if you’ve read that, you’re a Flipping50 Menopause Fitness Specialist, you may recognize his name. You might have seen him in an inflight magazine before those were pulled too.
Look, one of the most-downloaded cheat sheets I give trainers and health coaches is the Sleep tips tool. Why? Well, first if they don’t sleep, they don’t show up well if at all. They cancel more. When they do arrive, clients with 2 hours of sleep deprivation lack coordination. Four hours and they have the reaction skills of a legal drunk. Imagine that. We’ve got people driving to sessions if that’s the case, who actually shouldn’t be on the road any more than someone with a blood alcohol content level that would give them a ticket and a DUI.
Then, what are we doing? Agility, reaction drills with them or pushing to heavy loads when they are more likely to get injured or deplete their immune system. Let’s dive into this super short episode and you may be inspired to hop over to the Flipping 50 episode too.
