Pre-exercise screening questionnaire & goal setting

This guide delves into the GoXPro Pre-Exercise Questionnaire, explaining the importance of each question and how it shapes the development of training programs. Understanding the reasons behind these questions allows for a more customized approach to each client's needs.

Question 1 - Current fitness level: Asking clients to estimate their fitness level provides insight into their self-perception and motivation. This baseline aids in monitoring progress and adjusting expectations.

Questions 2 and 3 - Sports participation: These questions identify if the client regularly engages in sports, informing you about their activity level and preferences. This assists in recommending suitable exercises and intensity levels.

Question 4 - Daily activity level: Understanding if a client is predominantly sedentary highlights potential issues like poor posture or muscle imbalances, guiding the focus towards corrective exercises.

Questions 5, 6, and 7 - Health concerns: Inquiring about health problems ensures that any client with medical issues obtains proper clearance and their program adheres to safety guidelines, using the Do's and Don't's manual for reference.

Question 8 - Post-operative or injury status: This question assesses the impact of surgeries, injuries, or accidents, allowing for adaptations to avoid contraindicated exercises, and to include beneficial ones.

Question 9 - Pregnancy status: For pregnant or postnatal clients, knowing the due date and current trimester enables the adjustment of exercises to ensure safety and effectiveness based on pregnancy guidelines.
