In my business I meet with people of all shapes and sizes who are all at different levels of fitness. A new client’s physical ability, exposure to physical fitness, and health has a direct impact on how our first training session will go. Have they ever work out before? Are they familiar with gym equipment? Are they dealing with any medical or health issues? Is the client looking to lose weight? Is the client looking to be a bodybuilder? Are they just looking for a new form of exercise? After you Take that FIRST STEP! we need to determine our common mission and our plan of attack!
Now that we have discussed your personal history, goals, and any health limitations, we need to plan our attack on this new mission together. I use our first workout to “test drive” my client’s body and assess your capability to move through an exercise session. I do this by gauging how well you can perform the following moves Squats, Hinges, Push, Pull, and a Plank.
These movements are the foundation to the body, therefore, any weakness or limitation in these areas will give me tremendous insight as to where we need to start. Everyone walks into my gym with their own goal in mind and these basic exercises are the best way for me to evaluate your current level of physical fitness and how to help you to achieve your mission.
Once we learn your body’s strengths and weaknesses, we need to document your starting point. We will take several photos to we can chronicle your transformation; a frontal view, a back view, and one for each side, profile view. It has been proven that when clients are able to visibly confirm their progress, they are more motivated to continue their fitness journey and often times increase their efforts.
This is your journey and I am here to educate you, cheer you on, push you, and help you! We are on a mission TOGETHER! BAM!!!
