On your first meeting with your trainer, he or she should perform a “Pre-test” to determine your baseline measurements and help develop a fitness routine to help you reach your specific goals. This pretest should include:
• Calculating BMI (Body Mass Index)
• Determine your weight
• Complete a strength test looking at upper and lower body (i.e. push-ups, bench press)
• Complete a core test (sit-ups, planks)
Your trainer should evaluate you every 4-6 weeks. If you are not making progress, your routine should be changed. When you decide to leave the program, be sure to have a post-test done to determine your final achievements.
