Exercise Prescription & Adherence

Exercise prescription commonly refers to the specific plan of fitness-related activities designed for a specified purpose, which is often developed by a fitness or rehabilitation specialist for the client or patient.

Adherence to the exercise prescription is of the utmost importance.  The success or failure of your program will be guided by your ability to follow your training schedule and its prescribed methods without flaw.  Non-compliance to the exercise protocol can mean termination of your contract. 

As you begin your training keep in mind that it is the job of the certified trainer to design and administer your program. To achieve the results that you and the trainer have decided will work best for your adherence is necessary.  Should you not be able to follow the prescription at the time it is prescribed, any necessary changes should be made at that time before you begin.  Two or more absences can lead to termination of your contract; No-Refunds will be given.

Hiring a professional trainer is a serious first step to reaching your goals. It is a financial investment in yourself and a commitment of time.  Clearing your schedule and giving priority to your training sessions is absolutely necessary.   Now that you have had your consultation it is assumed that you will take care of any and all prior obligations and you will be ready to move forward with your training.

Your training is administered in stages; any 2 missed sessions during any stage of your training will lead to an evaluation of your readiness for training.  Any 3 will mean a contract termination. 

Remember you have hired a Certified Professional Trainer to guide you through the next stages of your personal physical development.   Take this step only when you are ready, this is very serious.
