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.
My group session clients track their own progress; because, so far, they have declined the assessments. I do insist on the PAR-Q, though. When I can change their minds, I will have a partner assist testing portion of the first and last classes of waist and hip measurements, and the sit and reach, push-up and curl-up .
Then again, we all see how everyone improves when going through the races, games and exercises. The smiles and laughs of a good time seems plenty to motivate everyone.
