The Orientation is a two-step process designed to acclimate you to a fitness program specific to your goals. It is a great way for you to gain a general knowledge of the fitness floor and learn a safe and effective initial program.
Your first appointment is focused on goal setting and completing some simple fitness assessments including a functional movement screening designed to determine how best to create your program. You will meet with a trainer/exercise physiologist to discuss health history and fitness goals. Based on this conversation the trainer will design an individualized exercise program to meet your needs.
Your second appointment is designed to introduce you to the program created based on the information collected in your first session. The trainer will walk you through your program step by step in order to ensure you are comfortable using all of the equipment and you start your exercise program using correct settings, weight, and form.
Before your first appointment with your trainer you should see the nurse. Please also make sure all of your paperwork, including your medical clearance is complete.
After being on a consistent program for 6-8 weeks, you should speak to a trainer to make an appointment for a program review. The purpose of the program review is to reassess your current level, then discuss your current program, fitness goals and progress made. Based on this reassessment and conversation the trainer will make modifications to your program.
