As a personal trainer, one of the things I strive for with all of my clients is to take positive action steps to improve their health and their lives. What are positive action steps. Drinking more water, eating healthier food choices and having better overall nutrition, bypassing the junk food as often as possible, staying active and completing workouts when they need to be done. Having the right attitude is often times the most essential ingredient for success. I have to say that I have to be one of the luckiest trainers out there because I have a group of people who are dedicated and committed to the process. This is evidenced this cycles Fit Test and Weigh In. I compile a lot of data over the course of a day/week/month and one of the pieces of data that I love to see more than anything is the overall results of all the hard work that my clients put into the health and fitness. Therefore I have decided to share a little bit of the information that I collect. These numbers are proof positive that hard work and effort and dedication pay off!
We do bi-weekly Fit Tests and Weigh In’s. Every client is required to complete these every two weeks.
I am going to give the data from the most recent two Fit Tests and Weigh In’s. December 30, 2011 and January 13, 2012.
