Introducing Intake Forms and Assessments at Lumos

Hey Lumosheads,

We’re thrilled to roll out a game-changer at our gym: intake forms and assessments for all personal training and individual program design (IPD) clients. This step aligns perfectly with our mission to prioritize individuality and offer smart, thoughtful training experiences.

Our intake forms delve deep into your life, from home dynamics to work commitments, personal history, aspirations, and potential obstacles. It’s not just about checking boxes; it’s about forging a roadmap tailored to your unique journey.

Here’s some of what we get into in our intake form, and why we think it matters:

1. Personal History: Why it Matters: Understanding your fitness journey starts with knowing where you’ve been. Questions about past injuries, surgeries, and medical conditions help us tailor your program to keep you safe and injury-free. After all, we’re all about progress, not setbacks!

2. Daily Routine: Why it Matters: Your fitness journey doesn’t exist in a vacuum. Knowing the ins and outs of your daily routine, from work commitments to family responsibilities, helps us carve out the perfect plan that fits seamlessly into your life. No more roadblocks; just results!

3. Goal Setting: Why it Matters: Ah, goals—the guiding light of your fitness journey. Whether you’re aiming to shed a few pounds, crush a marathon, or simply feel more energized, we want to know what lights your fire. By setting clear, actionable goals together, we’ll pave the way to your ultimate success.

4. Nutrition Habits: Why it Matters: Nutrition is essential for in-and-out-of-gym progress, whether its performance, body composition, or simply feeling fulfilled and content. Understanding your current eating habits helps us craft nutrition guidance that fuels your workouts and supercharges your progress.

5. Sleep Quality: Why it Matters: Sleep—it’s not just for beauty! Quality snooze time is essential for muscle recovery, cognitive function, and overall well-being. By digging into your sleep habits, we can fine-tune your program to ensure you’re getting the rest you need to crush your goals.

6. Stress Levels: Why it Matters: Stress is the silent killer of gains. High stress levels can wreak havoc on your body and stall your progress faster than you can say “burpees.” By pinpointing your stress triggers, we can incorporate stress-reducing techniques into your routine to keep you on track and feeling zen.

7. Support System: Why it Matters: They say it takes a village, and your fitness journey is no exception. Whether it’s a workout buddy, a supportive partner, or a furry friend cheering you on, knowing your support system helps us rally the troops and keep you motivated when the going gets tough.

8. Favorite Activities: Why it Matters: Fitness should be fun, not a chore! By discovering your favorite activities and hobbies, we can inject some joy into your workouts and keep you coming back for more. From dance parties to outdoor adventures, the sky’s the limit!

Once we’ve gathered insights from your intake form, our assessments kick in to provide an objective view of your movement patterns. We identify what comes naturally, what poses challenges, and where adjustments may be needed. This data isn’t a one-off; it serves as a benchmark for tracking progress and fine-tuning your program along the way.

By implementing these systems, we’re ensuring consistency and personalized attention for every client. It’s not about imposing our fitness philosophy; it’s about crafting an experience that revolves around your needs and aspirations.

So, whether you’re a fitness enthusiast or stepping into the gym for the first time, get ready for a tailored journey at Lumos. Shoot me a message to learn more about how intake forms and assessments can elevate your fitness game. Your journey to a fitter, stronger you starts here!
