Initial Consultation

£10.00

Before training together we will have a consultation at Unit 1 Gym, Bury St Edmunds, IP32 7AR. During the consultation we will discuss where you want to be and how we are going to get you there. It is where we agree to commit ourselves to your goals. We are all different so we may decide to start with 30 minute sessions or 90 minute training sessions.  I will be flexible to accommodate your requirements and budget accordingly. It will be held at a mutually convenient time in a private space at Unit One Gym. You won’t be doing any exercise so just wear whatever feels comfortable. At this point there is no pressure to commit yourself to your fitness goals and train with me. However, if you feel pleased to proceed, sessions can be booked in at the consultation via bank transfer or cash.

The consultation will include:

  • Body fat and muscle mass measurement
  • Medical Questionnaire
  • Lifestyle Questionnaire
  • Discussing commitment to programme

To get the most accurate and reliable results we need to:

  • Select a consistent time of day, and stick to it.
  • Measure with an empty bladder
  • When normally hydrated
  •       Take readings at least 3 hours after rising, eating a large meal, or exercising.

Things that can affect hydration include:

  • strenuous exercise
  • Recent food intake
  • Diuretics: Caffeine, alcohol, certain medications

How does the Tanita Body Fat Monitor determine my body fat?

Taint uses its’ own proprietary method of Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis (BIA). All you had to do is stand barefoot on the scales and it will measure your body composition.

Are there people for whom the monitor is not appropriate?

People with pacemakers are advised not to use the monitors. Although there are no known health risks, this is a precaution that is advocated by all manufacturers of BIA. Accuracy is an issue for certain categories of people, but the units may still be used to monitor trends and accurately show degree of change. They include:

•      Pregnant women
•      People who exceed the weight capacity of the scale (models vary) and/or exceed 75% body fat
•      Professional athletes and bodybuilders.
