The Value of an Assessment - Indianapolis Fitness And Sports Training

The Value of an Assessment

written by Mike Robertson

Here at IFAST, one of the questions we get quite frequently is why we perform an initial assessment on our clients.

As the saying goes, “if you’re not assessing, you’re guessing.”

Each and every client that we work with his unique. They have unique backgrounds, unique bodies, and unique goals. Without taking the time to really assess their body, it’s impossible to write an effective training program for them.

Going through the assessment process allows us to determine what is moving correctly, what is in’t moving correctly, and (most importantly) how to address your movement limitations while still addressing your end goals.

If we can not only help you get stronger, lose body weight or body fat, or possibly add muscle mass, all while improving how your body feels, we have done our job.

Unfortunately, what you see with many clients and athletes that work with personal trainers is they get going for 4 to 6 weeks, only to get injured along the way.

Instead, our goal is to get your body aligned first and foremost. If we can do that, the likelihood of you getting injured decreases dramatically.  Think of getting your car aligned and tuned up prior to a big road trip; this is essentially what we’re doing to your body!

Whether your goal is to build muscle, lose fat, or gain strength, an initial assessment gives us the tools necessary to develop the best possible training program for You. Give us a call today at 317.578.0998 or e-mail us at [email protected] to find out what IFAST can do for you.

All the best
