Health Assessment

A Body & Soul health assessment is an in-depth, detailed analysis of your current physical fitness and health. Your health assessment will include a 60-minute assessment appointment with one of our personal trainers.

You will be taken through an assessment that uses the most up-to-date tools and techniques to provide a comprehensive and complete assessment of your health and fitness. Your assessment will include:

  • Evaluation of your cardiovascular fitness and musculoskeletal fitness
  • Assessment of your current level of balance, strength, and flexibility
  • Calculation of body composition (fat, muscle, bone)
  • Measurement of blood pressure and resting heart rate
  • Determination of BMI and waist girth/circumference

Following your initial appointment, you will be provided with a detailed printed report of your results. You also have the option to schedule a follow up appointment to go through your results with one of our personal trainers in detail.

Why should I have a health assessment?

Regular health assessments provide an objective and concrete measure of your health and fitness, something that mirrors and bathroom scales can’t do! If you are currently engaged in a fitness program, a health assessment will provide an objective measure of your progress and results. If you are not currently following a fitness program, an initial assessment will help you determine which areas of your health and fitness are good, which require improvement, and if working with a personal trainer could be beneficial for you.

Who should get a health assessment?

We believe that everyone should know where they are at with their health and fitness. If you are at all concerned about your health and/or fitness – you should get an assessment. If you have recently suffered an injury or change in health – you should get an assessment. If you need a little extra motivation to getting committed to pursuing a healthy and active lifestyle – you should get an assessment! We require that all new Personal Training clients perform a health assessment before commencing training at our facility. In this case, health assessments provide trainers with the information they need to tailor a workout to perfectly fit each client’s individual goals and abilities.

How often should I get reassessed?
Your trainer will work with you to identify how frequently you should be reassessed. Reassessments will provide you with a strong representation of how your training has helped you achieve or come closer to achieving your goals.
