Fitness Assessment & Testing – FAT

Conducted by GĀYO FITNESS ACADEMY, this short course in Fitness Assessment & Testing (FAT) is designed to introduce personal trainers and other fitness professionals to the ESSENTIAL protocols relating to pre-screening or pre-assessment and screening or assessments.

Just as medical doctor will examine a patient – and, then offer a diagnosis – a fitness professional must also conduct pre-screening and screening of the client on the basis of which he / she can prescribe exercise protocols. *FEE SUBJECT TO CHANGE WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE. TAX, AS APPLICABLE. CHECK FEE PRIOR TO ENROLMENT.This is essential due to three reasons –

  • Professional conduct of the trainer
  • Legal requirement in terms of due diligence being carried out’
  • Trainer must know the precise medical, mental and physical condition of the client – only then can a reasonably accurate exercise plan can be made.

We reiterate that there are 16 types of fitness goals that can be achieved through a permutation and combination of eight training modalities. FAT will help identify the clients’ fitness goals.

This short course – Module 2.11 – is part of the Mumbai University Certificate Course for Personal Fitness Trainers (CCPFT).

It is approved by International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA) – USA for 7 CEUs.

FAT is also a popular stand-alone course. You can attend it without enrolling to CCPFT.
