This program consists of various phases designed to determine your readiness to engage in physical activity, measure your functional fitness capacity in several areas, record active data in relation to your current fitness levels, and on an ongoing basis regularly use and evaluate your current health and fitness statuses.
You will undergo a screening evaluation process designed to identify risk factors that are associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disease, injury and other problems. This will include having you fill out a written medial history/questionnaire form and an informal interview.
In addition to a screening evaluation, a fitness evaluation will be administered to measure fitness levels. A fitness evaluation is not to be confused with medical diagnostic tests. A fitness evaluation is used to evaluate your starting point, determine your current level of fitness, develop an individual exercise plan, provide incentive and note progress in the following months.
Depending on your current fitness level, cardiovascular tests may be performed. These tests may involve measuring your heart rate and observing your respiratory response. Not only does cardiovascular testing establish your present level of cardio-respiratory fitness, but it also provides a baseline for measuring future improvements. Following your screening and fitness evaluation an individualized exercise program will be developed for you. You will be thoroughly instructed in all aspects of your individualized exercise program.
During any fitness evaluation or exercise program there exists the possibility of heart disorders, fainting, abnormal blood pressure response and in rare instances heart attack, stroke or death. Every effort has been made to minimize these risks by gathering preliminary information relating to your current health and fitness and by observation during testing.
Any questions that you have about the procedures, risks or benefits to be expected are welcome. If you have any reservations or doubts, please voice these concerns and ask for an explanation or clarification.
Participation in any tests or exercise program is voluntary. You are free to deny consent or withdraw consent at any time. However, it is important that you promptly report any unusual feeling or any difficulties you perceive while being evaluated or exercising. It is your responsibility to fully disclose relevant information as requested by staff of Elite Personal Training and Fitness Solutions.
