Why should I get a fitness assessment?
There are many benefits of fitness assessments, the major use is to establish your strengths and weaknesses to discover which areas need improvement. From this your training programs can be modified accordingly and valuable training time can be used more efficiently. The initial testing session can also give you an idea of where all your fitness levels are at the start of a program, so that future testing can be compared to this and any changes can be noted. By repeating tests at regular intervals(every 2-3 months), you can get an idea of the effectiveness of your training program.
