Your clients are paying you for results. They are paying you because you have expertise that they don’t have.
Fitness Tests are a way to measure the results you’re delivering. They’re a way for you to identify and troubleshoot issues. They’re a way for you to constantly modify their training program to deliver the results they want as soon as possible.
If there are assessments a client is not comfortable with or doesn’t think applies to their situation, find a replacement or remove it entirely. If they aren’t comfortable with skinfold measurements, substitute them with circumference measurements.
Fitness Tests are something you design with your client. They’re a way for you and your client to make sure you’re 100% on the same page. The most important part of any training program is the client’s buy-in. Buy-in is commitment, and commitment produces results.
