Personal Training The program begins with a comprehensive personal interview designed to help you set program goals and evaluate your current lifestyle habits. A thorough health history is reviewed and Fitness Essentials professionals work in conjunction with the medical community to conduct medical screenings and fitness assessments depending upon individual needs.

  • Muscular endurance
