We are about to start a program that will require at least 600 fitness assessments on top of the traditional, comprehensive assessments we do for our personal training clients. We have been researching what is on the market but it’s quite expensive. What methods are you current using/would you recommend or that you would not recommend? Thanks for your help!
AFAA has a number of good assessment forms in their manual. ACE also has a number of fitness assessment forms available. However, creating an assessment unique to each of your clients can be especially helpful when designing the client’s training program. It may not give you an estimated VO2 max, or %body fat, but they not be an important measurement.
