What does the assessment cover and why is it important?
Our Senior Wellness Specialists know that each person is different. Each has different requirements, goals and injuries.
Since 2002, our first step with a new client is to conduct a Strength and Flexibility Assessment to understand any strengths and challenges. Once we have this information, we can then develop a program that fits into their lifestyle.
Our 60-minute Strength and Flexibility Assessment includes a thorough analysis of each individual’s strength and flexibility which includes a fourteen-point benchmark. The Assessment measures the strength and flexibility of a person’s neck, shoulders, back, chest, arms, elbows, hands, fingers, abdominals, hips, knees, ankles, feet and toes. All of the information informs the ongoing In-Home Personal Training Sessions.
Our reasoning behind the specific benchmarks is our experience with client’s in Massachusetts and Florida. Each has a specific area or issue that needs to be strengthened to make sure the entire chain of the body works correctly. If a specific issue is found, we focus on overcoming that challenge first and then moving on to other areas.
