It’s never a waste of time when performing fitness assessments. It’s a great way for you to find out all the information you need regarding your clients. An assessment is the tool to use when you are preparing a fitness and nutrition program for your clients. It’s the first step of many to follow.
I do an assessment on my clients every 6 weeks to see how they are improving and then make the necessary changes to the plan in order to continue with their progress. I personally don’t charge them when I do the assessment.
