What you can expect in your first session
- Trainer/Client Consultation:
The first thing we want to do before we get into any physical training is to understand you as a person. This includes understanding your goals, previous habits/activity, and address any health concerns that currently play a role in your life. Achieving an understanding of these various factors allows us to create safe and effective programming to help you reach your goals.
- Personal Fitness Evaluation (PFE):
Once we have an understanding of your background and where you want to go with your fitness, we will have you complete a personal fitness evaluation that aligns with ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine) standards. This evaluation will help us gauge your current fitness level. It’s important to understand this is not a competition or test, give it your best and we’ll do the rest!
Following the PFE, we will allow you to cool down while we give you an orientation of our space and equipment. Whether you’re an experienced gym-goer or brand new to fitness, we want to give you a fresh perspective on how we may utilize different pieces of equipment or space to best meet your individual needs.
- Plan of Action:
At the conclusion of your orientation, we’ll sit down and map out where we’re going from here. This includes scheduling sessions, giving you an overview of what we have planned for your workouts, and completing the purchase process. This is where you can get excited, because the next time you meet with us, you’ll be on your way to a fitter you!
