Fitness Screening

What Is A Fitness Screening?

The first step toward achieving your fitness goals begins with an in-depth look at your starting point. Our fitness assessment is designed to allow our trainers to gain specific insights into how a person's body moves today, based on the individual's exercise and injury history, while qualifying their current lifestyle habits. Gathering this information is essential for us to begin your training process here at Precision.

What To Expect

Biometric
Measurements

What Do We Do

  • Body weight
  • Skin fold measurement
  • Tape measurement for body circumference

Why Do We Do It

Whether it’s weight loss, muscle gain, lifestyle change, or performance benefits, physiological progress can be specifically measured and should be regularly. Our coaches do not require people to have this biometric measurement in order to train at Precision, however it is helpful to know where you’re starting so we can gauge if we’re making progress.

Comprehensive
Movement Screening

What Do We Do

We assess the ability to sense and stabilize the primary joints responsible for movement…the shoulder and hip girdles. Depending on a persons goals as well as their injury and exercise history, we individualize our methods of assessment.

Why Do We Do It

Qualifying your posture as well as your ability or inability to acquire full range of motion in your shoulders and hips is essential for our coaches to know what movements are safe, and where to begin as far as teaching you how to move safely.

Joint Stability
& Range of Motion
Assessment

What Do We Do

We assess the ability to sense and stabilize the primary joints responsible for movement…the shoulder and hip girdles. Depending on a persons goals as well as their injury and exercise history, we individualize our methods of assessment.

Why Do We Do It

Qualifying your posture as well as your ability or inability to acquire full range of motion in your shoulders and hips is essential for our coaches to know what movements are safe, and where to begin as far as teaching you how to move safely.

Movement
Analysis

What Do We Do

We assess one’s ability to accomplish specific motor patterns such as, squatting, pulling, bending, pushing, pressing, walking, and twisting. Depending on the individual, we customize our qualitative analysis per person.

Why Do We Do It

Most people don’t have cameras circling their body as they go through life. Spotting a movement compensation, improper motor behavior, or just tight muscles that restrict range of motion allows our coaches to determine the safe starting point for each exercise you’ll be taught in your training program.

Core Activation
Assessment

What Do We Do

Our approach to assessing your ability to contract your core musculature is accomplished through a series of isometric `{`contraction without motion`}` positions. Depending on your body dynamics, this may vary from a seated assessment to a supine `{`lying on your back`}` assessment, to a prone `{`lying face down`}` assessment. Ultimately our goal is to determine if your core musculature is activating or not.

Why Do We Do This

Movement begins from core to extremity. It stands to reason that you must have an ability to contract your core musculature. Whether or not you’re able to do this day one is paramount for our coaches to know in order to develop your individualized training program.

Cardiovascular
Endurance
Assessment

What Do We Do

Having gathered necessary information regarding how your body moves, our coaches will determine whether you’re going through an Approach cardiovascular assessment, or a group training assessment. Approach 1-on-1 Training
Based on your training goals as well as your exercise and injury history, our coaches may recommend 1-on-1 training. Our qualitative analysis of your cardiovascular endurance could involve anything from biking, to rowing, to running. Group Training `{`Basecamp, Ascent, Peak`}`
If our coaches believe that group training is a safe option for you, our qualified assessment will include a mix of functional movement and stationary cardiovascular equipment in order to get a proper gauge of what program would meet you where you are as well as challenge you.

Why We Do It

Based on your training goals as well as your exercise and injury history, our coaches may make a recommendation for which training program may suit you best. Based on that recommendation, our coaches may take you through our Basecamp, Ascent, or Peak cardiovascular endurance assessment.
