Our coaches are all university graduates with degrees in Kinesiology, Exercise Science or another related field and then go through our extensive internship process that can last as long as six months. Most “public” gyms have trainers that have nominal if any education and are then dropped straight in to the training environment. Elite Fitness Plus uses protocols similar to those used in a doctor’s office. We track every workout and every exercise that each client completes. We also keep track of the weight used that day, food consumed before the workout, and daily injuries or ailments. All EFP clients also wear a heart rate monitor, which allows us to track maximum heart rate, average heart rate, and caloric burn for each workout.
New clients will go through a full assessment before beginning a workout program. In this assessment we measure heart rate, blood pressure, body composition (lean muscle mass versus body fat), cardiovascular strength and endurance, and lower body, upper body, and core strength. This gives our coaches a starting point for each client to build from and allows us to measure each client’s progress from a numerical or quantifiable stand point.
