What to Expect

  • Your Health Screen Profile and Informed Consent forms will be sent to you prior to your first training session. Please bring the completed forms to your first session.

  • First, we will go over your health screening form together to better understand your current status and ensure there is nothing that would prohibit you from starting your exercise program.

  • Then, Jim will do a general field assessment to evaluate your balance, eye-hand coordination, flexibility, and general and core strength, as well as a visual posture analysis. This helps Jim design an exercise program that's customized for you, whether you need challenging workouts, a senior fitness program, or something in between.

What to Wear
  • Please dress appropriately for exercise. There is a place to change if you are arriving in street clothes.

  • Kindly do not wear street shoes in the training area! Please bring clean, "indoor" fitness shoes with you.

  • If you wish, you are welcome to leave a pair of fitness shoes at the studio for your convenience.

  • Filtered water and towels are provided.

  • Clients are encouraged to ask questions and to share any relevant information that would affect the design of a safe and effective training program.
