Fitness assessments

We can design a programme specific to your goals in a one-hour session with a gym instructor. Your goals may include: general health, muscular development, fat-loss, sports performance, cardiovascular training or injury rehabilitation.

A full fitness assessment includes:

  • Blood pressure check
  • Body composition (includes body fat estimation)
  • Aerobic fitness
  • Flexibility
  • Muscular strength and endurance

Body composition and profiling

This involves a restricted ISAK profile (skin folds, girth and bone breadth measurements).

It is best suited to those with specific training goals as you can monitor changes in body composition. This session takes 40 minutes including consultation.
