FITNESS STARTER-KIT & FAQ
Making the decision to pursue a more active, healthier, happier lifestyle is a step in the right direction. At The Fitness Firm, we believe that setting the right course for your objectives is key in experiencing lasting results that are achievable and enjoyable.
That’s why we always recommend beginning your new fitness journey with our Starter-Kit Session.
This is your session – there is no score, pass or fail – it’s about working with you to discover and review your goals and current condition/lifestyle to determine the best possible plan to getting you to improved and optimal health. Included in this session is a Functional Movement Screen which is a total body analysis of movement and range of motion. When your body moves optimally, this ensures that you feel healthy and can stay active for life. Rather than ignoring the issues that you need to address, use this as an opportunity to start a fitness program from an honest place with yourself…. the results will be powerful.
Starter Kit consultations are conducted by Kwesi Millington, certified personal trainer and fitness consultant. Click here to see Kwesi’s bio.
