Is a Strength and Flexibility Assessment important?
No one would keep driving a car for 50 years without having it checked by a mechanic? The reason is, things weaken and wear out in a car. The same thing happens to all of us. Sarcopenia is the degenerative loss of muscle and bone by 10% per decade and it starts at the age of 25. If you’re 50, you’ve already lost 25% of your muscle and bone. Strength training or resistance training is the fastest and safest way to stop these effects. That is why an Assessment is so important. You’ll learn the areas of your body to strengthen and the areas you need to improve flexibility.
Since 1991, our In Home Personal Trainers know that each person is different. Each person has different goals, requirements and rehabilitation needs.
The first step with a new client is to conduct a Strength and Flexibility Assessment. It helps us to understand any challenges a person might be facing. Our industry leading 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 body; from head to toe.
Why is so much information required?
The information from the Assessment informs the ongoing In-Home Personal Training Sessions. The more knowledge we have about an issue, the sooner we can assist in reducing the effects. Our reasoning behind the specific benchmarks is our experience working with over 400 clients in Massachusetts and Florida. Each has a specific area that needs to be corrected to make sure the entire chain of the body works correctly.
