Initial Assessment - 45 mins
The Initial Assessment is the first appointment with the trainer and is treated as a holistic health evaluation to set goals and record baseline data. This includes:
Fitness and sporting history
Discussion of medical and injury status
Identifying areas to mobilise and strengthen
Analysis of lifting technique/ROM
Sub max fitness test on bike – 10min
Blood pressure and weight data
Private session 1:1 - 60 mins
The first S&C session after the initial assessment is a personalised one-on-one training session. We aim for technique correction during exercise and education of fundamental movements and gauge and address any limitations such as returning to exercise after injury. Core function is the foundation for all S&C training in private and group sessions.
Group session 2-3:1 - 60 mins
Once confident, clients will graduate to a group session with 2 to 3 other participants. Exercise prescription will be designed for each individual. Each session will comprise of cardio, strength training, core activation and stretching techniques. Each client will have specific exercises targeted to meet their individual goals. Training sessions will vary week to week and incorporate Low Intensity Interval Training, High Intensity Interval Training, body weight movements, the use of therabands and as well as equipment for core and balance training, flexibility and static strength training.
The baseline data is used to compare results in a Goal Review appointment where we review measurements and discuss new goals. During the review we will re-measure body measurements and re-assess the training program, goals and address any new injuries, pain or limitations. This appointment can be an important tool to re-motivate clients by revisiting objectives, results and improvements in overall health.
