It all begins with a personal assessment
When beginning your new fitness journey at OnePlus, we prefer you start with an assessment. (Which is why we perform them for free.) This helps you and your coach know where you’re beginning, and it also allows us to modify our fitness plan for you.
Before we even touch a piece of equipment, your coach will sit down with you to clearly define your goals and what you want go get out of your training.
Are you an adult looking to get fit? Are you a swimmer looking to boost your flexibility? Or are you a young baseball player looking to train outside of school? No matter where you’re coming from or where you want to go, your OnePlus coach will take the time to listen and ensure your needs are met.
Next, we assess your body fat composition. There are many methods of assessing body fat composition, but a majority of these methods are unreliable and do not give an accurate assessment of essential vs. nonessential body fat.
For our purposes, we will be using the skinfold measurement method. By taking the sum of skinfold measurement at various sites, we are able to quickly and accurately calculate the percentage of body fat. By regularly performing this assessment throughout your fitness journey, we’re able to see how much you improve through each cycle.
Functional Movement Screen
As the last part of the assessment, your instructor will conduct a functional movement screen, or FMS. This groundbreaking system is proven to assist your coach in creating the most effective customized exercise program to avoid injury and increase performance. By using the FMS, your coach is able to find your body’s weakest link and improve upon it to make it more likely you’ll achieve your fitness goals.
An FMS also decreases your risk for injury. Since your coach knows what areas you’re less proficient in, they’re able to create a program to make sure you stay injury free.
The truth is, if you’re not assessing, you’re guessing. There’s no way for you to know if or how much you’re improving if you have no baseline to calculate from. That’s why an assessment at OnePlus Strenght+Conditioning is so important to your fitness journey.
