At Island Fitness, we are committed to helping you achieve optimal results and maintain consistent progress toward your goals! To achieve this, and to ensure the safety of all our members, we encourage all new members to complete a Fitness Consultation upon joining the club, and to have regular assessments and reviews annually or quarterly.
What is a Fitness Consultation?
A Fitness Consultation is a 90-minute meeting with a trained Fitness Consultant who will help you maximize the benefits of your gym membership. During this meeting the Fitness Consultant will review your medical and exercise history, and perform a Fitness Assessment to establish your baseline fitness level.
The fitness consultant will then be able to:
help you establish realistic goals and set priorities,
discuss steps you can take toward achieving your goals,
and make fitness recommendations.
A Fitness Consultation does NOT diagnose medical conditions, serve as a medical exam, or provide personal training services.
What Happens during a Fitness Consultation?
Your fitness consultant will perform a Fitness Assessment, which is a series of comprehensive tests and measurements that will help determine your baseline fitness level. The Fitness Consultant will start by measuring your blood pressure, resting heart rate, body composition, tape-measure circumferences, and cardio-respiratory efficiency. Next you will be asked to perform a series of simple movement tests that will measure strength, endurance, flexibility, agility, stability, balance, alignment, and other dynamic functions. Your results will be kept on file so you can monitor your progress by repeating the same tests at regular intervals and comparing your scores.
