The purpose of our complimentary fitness assessment is for us to evaluate your strengths and weaknesses. During the assessment, you’ll tell us about your specific fitness goals and any health complications you may have. After a series of questions, we then begin the physical part of your assessment. You’ll be guided through multiple exercises testing your strength, flexibility, coordination, and cardiovascular endurance. The results from your fitness assessment will determine the first stages of your fitness program.

When & what to eat before your fitness assessment:
2 to 3 hours before your fitness assessment eat a light breakfast.

A good example is:
Orange juice

What to wear for your assessment:
Wear comfortable clothes that you can workout in and don’t mind sweating in. You must wear athletic shoes. Come dressed & prepared to workout. Avoid wearing jewelry and accessories that can hender your movement.

What to bring to your fitness assessment:
Bring a bottle of water
Form of payment if you intend on purchasing a package that day.

Of course genetics play a major part in our physique but as we all know, we can ruin good genetics and we can certainly improve upon bad genetics. It is true that an individual’s physical appearance is a result of genetics, what they eat and how they lift. Many times I walk into gyms and see guys who are pencil thin doing long runs on the treadmills. I ask these guys what do they want to accomplish physically and they say something like “I wanna bulk up” My response is usually “you’re not going to gain size doing that much cardio.” To gain size one must lift heavy weights but with low reps. A good rule of thumb when training to build size is if you can lift the weight more than ten times, it’s too light! The opposite goes for weight loss training. High reps and medium to light weight is best for burning fat and losing weight. Of course their are a few different types of weight loss techniques. If you’re not concerned with losing muscle then extended sets of cardio similar to that of a marathon runner is great for losing weight. But if that is a concern, then that approach may not be the best for you because you will burn off muscle with the fat as marathon runners do. If you want to lose fat and build muscle then you want to do explosive exercises like jump squats or short sprints to emulate the bursts of a sprinter. That style of training will not only help you shed fat but also build lean, defined muscle. So when training keep your goals in mind. The style of lifting you choose to do will directly effect your appearance and performance.

Ideally we would all like to consistently workout 6 or 7 days a week. But sometimes life gets in the way and we end up not being as consistent with our workouts as we know we should be. If that is the case then let your workout frequency determine your workout. For instance if you can consistently workout 6 or 7 days a week then you will have a very detailed muscle split. Meaning you can dedicate an entire workout to one or two muscles. On the other hand If you’re only able to get one workout in a week then you’re better off doing a full body workout on that day.

When training with Tybody we recommend our clients train at least 3 days a week. Here is a breakdown on the muscle group split for a 3 session week:

Day one:
Upper body push – Chest, triceps, and shoulders

Day two:
Upper body pull – Back, biceps, lats, and traps

Day thee:
Lower body – Quads, hamstrings, hip flexors, glutes, and calves
