Exercise And Tracking Results: We believe in dealing with everyone on an individual basis. We will not compare you to other people of your age group using outdated 30 year old standard fitness tests that are commonly used throughout the fitness industry.
We believe in measuring success by taking measurements with a measuring tape. We are also interested in what the scale says, but we are much more interested in what the measuring tape indicates. We do not believe in the use of fat calipers or other means of inaccurate body fat testing devices.
We believe in taking measurements once per month. For men, you will take your measurements on the same date of each month first thing in the morning. For women, you will take your measurements on the same day of your cycle first thing in the morning each month to be consistent. We do not believe in putting too much emphasis on the weigh scale. We all know that a woman's weight fluctuates throughout her menstrual cycle, so we see no reason for punishing women by encouraging them to weigh or measure themselves during a time of the month when they are retaining more water than usual.
We believe in starting slowly with you if you come from a sedentary fitness background so we can ease you into exercise in an enjoyable fashion. We don't believe in fitness tests/work outs that have you working to your maximum on the first day, so you can discover just how out of shape you are. It is not our desire to have you so sore that you can't get out of bed the next day.
We believe that people are as unique and different as snowflakes and to compare people with one another is like comparing finger prints or DNA. Everyone's genetic make up is unique and different as are their health and fitness goals and any health conditions that they may have. We believe that you too should be treated as an individual person with unique needs and goals.
We believe that the only person you really need to compete with is yourself.
