Train specifically to your goals, your body type, and your life.

Find accountability, structure, expert guidance.

First, we discuss your health History which includes gathering information on your medical background, exercise history, equipment availability, long term goals, and preferences.

Includes:

  • Personal history
  • RHR (Resting heart rate)
  • BP (Blood Pressure)
  • Weight
  • liability form
  • Body Composition

A Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q) will help me determine if and when you will be ready for exercise. These are formal, possibly time consuming questions, so I can only ask that you are honest and in good spirit.

This two hours (up to two sessions) is used to collect the following required information:

  • Body Composition
  • Cardiovascular (VO2max Test)
  • Balance
  • Flexibility
  • Muscular Strength
  • Muscular Endurance

Things to do before assessment… wear comfortable athletic clothing, eat a healthy meal 2-3 hour before,  don’t drink any caffeine within several hours of the assessment. Call me if you have any other concerns, please allow up to two session to complete assessment. please note that if you are found unfit for exercise after our first session, you will not be charged.

The workouts will be very basic the first couple sessions and progressively advance throughout the weeks to come. The easier we start and the more consistent we become, the longer we will stay fit.

It is also required that you have a Heart Rate Watch so the you can monitor your HR while working by yourself and stay in the correct HR zone. We will know what HR zone you should stay in after VO2max test is performed. If you do not have a HR watch, please let us know and we may be able to loan you one until we purchase one for you at a discounted rate.

Continue to see a difference

During the second month of training you will continue to make improvements in your cardiovascular endurance as well as muscular strength. The more fit you become the more we will need to challenge you if you will continue seeing gains. The base (aerobic) workout will seem to get easier over time, but the new workouts that will be integrated will continue to be challenging. By continuing to push ourselves, while knowing how long to recover, we will begin to see obvious changes during the second month of training. You can expect your body composition to begin changing, provided you have been eating correctly and doing the prescribed exercise during the training sessions on your own time. Also, flexibility will changes only if we are consistent with it. Stretching, warming up, and cooling down is underrated by most athletes, but if done daily, will make you progress much faster.

“At first they’ll ask you why you’re doing it. Later, they’ll ask you how you did it.”
