I am starting a boot camp / small group program. Wondering what specific strength/flexability/endurance assessments you conduct initially and track over time. There is limited time, and I don’t yet have the ability to bring each person in individually. So I’m just wondering what are the good ones to track and assess. Thanks.
Great question. I would treat each person like my one-on-one PT clients. If I were not a trainer and a potential boot camp participant, I would want an thorough evaluation to track my progress.
You could always make the/their first day an “evaluation day”. Have an assistant help with the depth of your evaluation ie: before photos, PAR-Q, weight, measurements etc.
This “extra” time spent with your new participants may just set you “apart” from other boot camp instructors and forge your success of future boot camp classes.
Widhing You Great Success!
