Health and Fitness Assessment
If you choose to engage my services, before I do anything else I give you a full health assessment. I will provide you with a written report and some explanatory notes about what all the measurements mean and this is useful as it gives both a starting off point and a benchmark which you can measure your progress against. I carry out a range of tests that include :
Resting Heart Rate
Body Composition tests to determine your weight,
Cardiovascular fitness tests determine how efficiently your body's circulatory and pulmonary systems are working , there are multiple variations of cardio tests and they can range from walking, running, cycling or a step test.
Muscular fitness tests give me information to design an effective resistance training program for you , some common tests include a pushup test, abdominal curl-up test, isometric bicep curl test, one or multiple tests in order to see a clear picture of your muscular fitness.
Range of motion and flexibility testing health assessments are available so that you can review your progress and ensure that you are on the correct exercise regime. They are also a great way of feeling good about yourself and an ongoing source of self motivation. I recommend that health assessments are carried out every 6 to 8 weeks.
