Congratulations on your first step to achieving a healthier lifestyle! This program will be designed specifically for you once you receive your assigned Personal Trainer (PT).
As a Florida Southern College employee, please be advised of the information that your trainer and the Fitness Coordinator of the Hollis Wellness Center will be collecting. The information includes contact options, address, birthday, gender, past and present medical conditions, current medical symptoms and family history. This information will aid in your safety as it will determine if we need a medical form from your current physician before you begin exercise.
Your Jump Start Application will be stored with the Fitness Coordinator and under lock and key inside of the Personal Training Office. The only individuals with access to your records will be the Fitness Coordinator and your assigned trainer.
The fitness assessment and consultation will last approximately one hour. Wellness and fitness assessments can serve several purposes for you in reaching a high level of well-being. Scores from these tests can be used to identify your strengths and weaknesses. This information can be used to design a fitness program to reach your goals and address the areas in your life that may need improvement. Periodic re-tests can gauge the degree to which you are accomplishing these goals. Whatever your reason may be, we are glad that you have chosen our program.
The fitness assessment will test the following areas:
● Height/Weight ● Resting Heart Rate
● Blood Pressure ● Movement Screen
● Body Composition ● Cardiovascular Fitness
● Muscular Endurance ● Muscular Strength
Following this assessment your PT will go over the results and answer any questions. A second session will then be scheduled to implement an exercise prescription designed specifically to meet your goals. Training sessions can be continued at the individual’s discretion. Periodic re-tests can also be scheduled to gauge the degree to which you are accomplishing the goals set (at least 6 weeks apart). It is recommended that you schedule pre and post test with the same personal trainer.
Small Group Training classes are pre-scheduled (days/times below). After completing a fitness assessment, all participants are expected to attend all of the scheduled appointments. If a participant is absent for more than 2 out of 10 of the scheduled appointments, he/she may be removed from the program. If a participant has continued absence or non-response, he/she may be prohibited from applying to any additional Jump Start programs.
Our goal is to educate then motivate you to enhance personal responsibility for your health. Remember the first wealth is health.
At this time, The Fitness Coordinator will assign you to a personal trainer. You will hear from your trainer within 24 hours. If you do not hear from a trainer within the time frame, please contact Abby Elias at Aelias@flsouthern.edu
If you fail to appear for a scheduled appointment, you will lose the right to continue in the program. In extenuating circumstances, your case will be referred to the HWC Fitness Coordinator for consideration.
Fitness Assessment/ Training Session Instruction Sheet:
The results to your Fitness Assessment and participation in training sessions can be affected by immediate sleeping, eating and exercise actions. The Jump Start program requires all participants to attend their scheduled appointments. These sessions are personalized to your needs. You will be given an exercise regime that caters to your weaknesses and builds on your strengths.
1. PLEASE arrive on time. If you cannot make your scheduled appointment, you will need to contact your personal trainer at least 24 hrs prior to testing/session. If you do not call to cancel, you will forfeit your rights to be tested or continue in the Jump Start program.
• Wear athletic bottoms (athletic type of shorts/pants), T-shirt and rubber soled shoes for the Fitness Profile test
• Eat an adequate meal prior to the session/ test
• Drink plenty of fluids over the 24-hour period preceding the test
• Get an adequate amount of sleep (~ 8 hours) the night before the test
• Notify your personal trainer if you have recently been ill. The test may need to be rescheduled
3. DO NOT:
• Wear tights or a one piece top because they make it difficult to obtain accurate skin fold measurements
• Eat a large meal, or consume tobacco, alcohol and caffeine for 3 hours prior to the test
• Exercise or participate in vigorous physical exercise the day of the test. It is best if the Fitness Profile test is the first exercise you perform for the day
