6) What Should I expect in my first session?

Your first training session will consist of fitness testing followed by a workout and goal setting. You will fill out a health history questionnaire/activity history, so that I am aware of any limiting conditions and can create a safe and effective routine (in some cases a doctor’s release is required to start an exercise program).

  • This is followed by fitness testing, consisting of:
  • Body fat testing
  • Treadmill test to determine aerobic conditioning and capacity
  • Height, weight, and body measurements
  • Strength Training and Recovery Testing

Fitness testing provides a starting point for your program, as well as a way to measure progress toward your goals. This testing will also give me an accurate understanding of your aerobic and anaerobic level of fitness.
