Portland Personal Trainer | Why an initial assessment is important

If you are just joining a gym and you are thinking about working with a personal trainer, the very first thing you need to do is let the fitness professional do an initial assessment. This will include asking you questions about your health, fitness background and then an array of tests. The important variable is that you are okay to exercise and that you have been cleared by your physician if you have any pre-existing conditions. These conditions can include diabetes, pregnancy, heart issues, knee or hip replacements,¬†osteoarthritis, asthma, etc. The more information the professional trainer has the better they can devise a program that will get you to your goals.Thanks,Kisar DhillonThe Art of Personal Training by Kisar Dhillon107 SE Washington Street, Suite 137Portland, Oregon 97214(503) 953-0241
