You will begin with a total body assessment, including height, weight, BMI and fitness testing with Futrex Body Composition Analyzer, which enables you to learn your fat to muscle ratio and hydration level utilizing state of the art near-infrared technology. A grip strength analysis will be performed, as well as a sit-and-reach flexibility assessment, push-up test, three-minute step test, postural analysis, Karvonen heart rate computation and blood pressure. An individual training program will then be designed by Diane, which you can perform either alone or with her supervision.
Let us turn our attention to the questions you need to undertake as a self-assessment of where you are in your life.
What is it about my body and mind that I am unhappy with that would be positively affected by being active on a regular basis?
What is it that I might, or do, want to change? Why?
Would I really like to change, even if it means giving up something I am accustomed to?
Do I think that I can mobilize the mental strength to significantly change a personal health-related behavior, if that is what I want or need to do?
What is it that I like about my body? Don't like? Would like to change?
What is my body self-image, truly? Does it all correspond to reality as others tell me that reality is?
Am I being realistic about this?
