1. Their size may literally prevent them from being able to do certain exercises. Take the leg press, for example. It’s going to be much more uncomfortable for them to perform the movement than it is for somebody of normal weight.
2. If you use equipment, you need to be aware of the weight limit. If you use selectorized machines, do you know the weight limits on them? What about your treadmills?
3. Some exercises create a little bit more “jiggle” than others. Mountain climbers, jumping jacks, burpees, bicycle sprints, and other exercises that require a lot of movement may be great for your normal sized individual, but for somebody who is morbidly obese, these exercises can cause a lot of embarrassing extra jiggle.
4. Use discretion with workout intensity. This one’s pretty obvious, but I think a lot of trainers overlook this. They spend their evenings watching The Biggest Loser, and then expect their clients to do the same.
5. It’s hard for them to get off of the floor. You’re probably going to end up running some type of circuit/interval style workout with an obese client. If you’re going to do so, try not to create the program in a way that causes the client to have to get up and off of the floor repeatedly.
6. Watch the impact. Excess weight on the body is excess weight on the joints. Research shows that for every excess pound carried, 4 extra pounds of stress are loaded onto the knee.2 Jumping causes the knees to be loaded 4-7x bodyweight.3 So when you picture what happens to the knees of a 350 pound male is jump roping, it’s not a pretty picture.
7. Keep some form of simple carbohydrate available. Jon mentioned before in one of his posts that he always kept some form of sugar in his desk for the potential hypoglycemic diabetic.
8. Always encourage. It doesn’t matter if you’re a drill sergeant style trainer, or the cheerleader, you need to be sure that no matter what, you’re always encouraging your clients.

1. Because of the weight and size of their bodies, obese people have difficulty moving, including getting up, getting down, and engaging in all types of ambulatory activities. In choosing equipment, then, obese adults typically prefer upright or recumbent stationary cycles that support their weight instead of treadmills and stair-climbing machines that do not. Therefore, for your overweight clients, try to include machine exercises that can accommodate their larger frames and that are structurally sturdy enough to support their weight (plus that of the load or weight that they are using). Avoid exercises such as the machine hip/leg press because of the challenges it presents in getting into position to perform the exercise as well as simply getting into and out of the machine. When working with obese clients, be sure that the equipment can accommodate their weight. Most manufacturers provide a weight limit in the product manual; if they do not, contact them to ascertain the weight limi...

1. Move 1: Chest Press. Although this move focuses on your chest, it also hits your shoulders, triceps and all-important core, Becourtney says. It teaches all of these muscles to work together, and is a great way for people with heavy bodies to work up to push-up variations.
2. 2. Dumbbell Bent-Over Row. This move targets the muscles in your back that support your spine — making it especially helpful for beginners with obesity or large breasts who may experience back pain or discomfort.
3. Move 3: Goblet Squat. Whenever you get up out of a chair or sit down onto the toilet, you're doing a squat and working your quads, glutes and hamstrings, Becourtney says.
4. Move 4: Dumbbell Deadlift. Deadlifts are great for everyone because they build your body's biggest, most powerful muscles. They also teach you how to lift with your legs and not your back, Becourtney says.
5. Move 5: Farmer's Walk. Have you ever carried a bag of groceries in each hand? Then you've done a farmer's walk. This total-body strength move is super functional, strengthening your body for the tasks you probably do every day, Becourtney says.

1. Lifting Weights. A common misconception is that cardio alone is what will help a person lose weight. While cardio is definitely important, weight training is vital as well.
2. Swimming. Swimming and other water exercises are a great way to ease into exercise. Water makes the body feel lighter, allowing the person to burn calories without straining their joints and bones.
3. Walking. This is probably the most popular form of exercise for anyone starting out. It’s free, there’s no equipment involved, and it’s not that difficult.
4. Cycling. Getting on a bike is another low impact form of exercise that’s great for beginners. It doesn’t matter if it’s a stationary bike or a road bike, this is a wonderful way to enjoy exercising.
5. Stretching. Stretching is extremely important to reduce the soreness of newly worked muscles. Plus, it’s a great way to prevent injuries. Stretching can be difficult at first since the muscles are extremely tight.
