Don’t Fear Assessments, Embrace Them!

In this episode, Josh Kennedy and James Breese chat about why assessments are so important in making progress in your health journey. The fitness industry, in general, has a bad reputation thanks to very weak industry regulations and because of that, you do find people will take chances with selling “miracle” products, diets, or workouts.

Today’s episode explores the reason why improving your health, strength and fitness comes down to doing regular assessments, and unfortunately there is no such thing as a ‘quick fix’ in fitness and health. How else can you know where you need to improve if you don’t know where you’re lacking? That’s why assessments are crucial in improvement.

Make sure that you are on the right track towards your goals – don’t skip the assessments.

Discussion points:

  • Why assessments are important
  • How the StrengthMatters Team does assessments
  • Follow-up assessments are an indicator of performance
  • Make changes to your workouts based on assessment results
