Fitness Assessments

What exactly is a Fitness Assessment?

A Fitness Assessment provides a safe and standardized approach to assessing the major components of fitness in individuals, and interprets these assessments based on norms and percentiles for others of similar age and gender.   Assessment areas include Aerobic Capacity, Body Composition, Blood Pressure, and various Strength and Flexibility tests.
Why would I want to have one done?

A Fitness Assessment can be beneficial for just about anyone!  

The beginner can use this as a tool to monitor their progress on an ongoing basis.  Seeing one's results and having them compared to acceptable norms can trigger changes and influence personal health practices and lifestyles.  A Fitness Assessment also gives a good starting point to help a trainer set up an appropriate program with realistic goals specific to you.

The experienced exerciser may also want to have a Fitness Assessment done in order to assess their strengths and weaknesses and to use these results to see whether they are following a balanced and effective exercise program.  

Fitness Appraisals are good for any exerciser who may want to monitor their progress towards goals that they set out for themselves by establishing a quantifiable benchmark.  As well, Fitness Assessments can serve as a great motivational tool!
What do I do with the results?

The results of your assessment will be compiled, and then verified against norms for your age group and gender.  A printed summary of the results will be given to you with a brief explanation of your strengths and weaknesses in each area tested.  The Fitness Assessment offers suggestions with your results, but it does not provide you with a program.  Amir will use your Fitness Assessment results to help design an exercise program that is tailored to your specific needs and goals.
" Understanding your strengths and weaknesses, and how you compare to others your age gives you an extra edge to helping you achieve your goals faster and in the most effective manner."
