Focusing On: Your Health
Once we have met and made sure we will work well together we will carry out a short health assessment. This will give us a good starting point and will ensure your programme is targeted to your fitness ability. We will then go through your results, answering any questions you might have, and get your training plan started.
Ongoing health assessment checks are a great way to measure progress and keep you on target to reach your goals.
We will carry out the following tests as part of your assessment-
Blood Pressure and Resting Heart Rate (RHR)
1 in 4 people have high blood pressure and are often unaware until it’s too late. Lifestyle changes such as improving your diet and exercise can help reduce this. The RHR is how many times your heart beats a minute when you’re at rest. This can be an indication for how physically fit you are.
BMI and Body Composition
BMI and Body Composition)
The Body Mass Index is based on your weight and height, and is frequently used to determine if a person’s weight is desirable for his or her height. Body composition checks show the different percentages of fat and muscle we have in our bodies. The results are used to help shape your program and focus on key areas for improvement.
Used to show the range of movement in muscles, flexibility is important for better posture, reduced risk of injuries, and a reduction in muscle tension. We test a range of different movements to measure flexibility, including the sit and reach test, trunk flexion, and shoulder flexibility.
This will help your me understand the strongest and weakest parts of your body and the results will be represented in your exercise programme- this will also indicate how many reps and sets should be included in your workout plan.
Hip to Waist Ratio
Hip to Waist Ratio
Measuring the hips and waist and then comparing the two, is a key indicator of a number of health risks. This method is sometimes preferred by personal trainers as it highlights where the body is storing more fat.
At Focusing On You Personal Training we take data protection very seriously. I keeps all your results securely, so that monitoring and tracking your progress is kept strictly confidential. It will be up to you to shout about the improvements you’ve made!
