A fitness assessment is like your yearly physical. It is important to know what is your fitness health today, what are your weaknesses, your imbalances, and your strengths. It is critical to do before starting or returning to any fitness activity. It is also important that it is done by a certified expert in the field of personal training. Other degrees are a complement but they must be certified in not just what the muscles are but how they work, how to improve them and train them without injuring yourself. The number one reasons people stop training is they get hurt or don’t get results. You need to have a clear understanding of where you are today and exactly what you need to do to improve in order for you to accomplish your fitness success plan.

The tests should consist of cardiovascular strength, muscle strength, flexibility, fat%, muscle mass%, visceral fat%, hydration%, bone density%, as well as some critical body measurements. These bench marks are important to understand your health and where you are exactly. Your certified experienced THT personal trainer can than determine what the next steps are and how you can achieve your fitness and health success plan.
