To achieve health and fitness goals, personal assessment s play a very important role. In fact, personal assessment should be done before designing an effective exercise program, nutrition plan, or cardio plan. It’s only with proper assessment that a plan that will yield the desired results can be designed. At Physique Personal Trainers, we perform regular assessments that enable us to come up with training programs that yield results in a timely manner. We perform personal assessments to ensure that our clients start their training on the right footing in order to achieve their desired goals. Although initial personal assessments may seem unnecessary and tedious, they are critical. Their results indicate the current fitness and health status of our clients. We use the results of these assessments to design training programs that suit our clients. Essentially, the results of these assessments provide the baseline that trainers use to measure their progress.
