As a fitness professional, have you ever needed to reference information from your personal training certification textbook when taking assessments on clients?
Just in case you forgot what angle you should be measuring an abdominal skinfold or when to ramp up the treadmill incline for a Bruce test, you no longer have to stress with TrainerMetrics newest feature, Protocols.
We have noticed an overwhelming amount of TrainerMetrics community members downloading our free Assessment Protocols PDF in the last 6 months. After speaking with our Beta users it only made sense to integrate this content with the software.
Instead of referring to a certification text book for every assessment detail, all of our metrics have corresponding protocol information including equipment necessary, the overall purpose, and step by step procedures. Currently we have released in-app protocol information for the following assessments:
- Body Mass Index
- Blood Pressure
- Body Fat %: 3 Site Skinfold (Jackson/Pollock)
- Body Fat %: 4 Site Skinfold (Jackson/Pollock)
