About the gym classes
As the saying goes, “if you are not assessing, you’re guessing.” Assessments provide personal trainers with an array of valuable information about each client.
This information includes objective data, such as heart rate and blood pressure, along with subjective data such as previous injury history. This is vital for determining the current state of readiness and the starting point for the client after initial fitness consultations.
Movement assessments should follow a process or flow. This flow, first and foremost, should work to obtain the most usable amount of information possible, in the shortest amount of time, with minimal risk. The last part is essential in that just because we can obtain great details from a single-leg jump, does not mean we should use it on every client.
