It all starts with an ASSESSMENT.  We believe that your PROGRAM DESIGN is only as good as your assessment.  During assessment, we attempt to accomplish the following:

  • Establish goals & a dashboard of key metrics to track results
  • Review relevant medical history & life style details
  • Start to get personal nutritional information
  • Measure your resting heart rate
  • Calculate your heart rate max & estimated training zones
  • Calculate your Body Mass Index
  • Measure your Body Fat Percentage - If applicable
  • Determine a Cardio Respiratory Starting Point via the 3 minute step test and Rockport Walk Test
  • Perform a movement analysis with the goal of identifying muscular imbalances
  • Determine which muscles are overactive, tight, and need to be stretched
  • Determine which muscles are underactive, need to be strengthened, and turned on
  • Start to create a corrective exercise strategy
  • Answer any questions you have

Corrective Exercise - Flexibility & Core Training
