Personal Trainers at Fitness Center Balanssi (Balance) are monitoring their customers’ stress, training effect and recovery with Firstbeat Lifestyle Assessment.
“The Lifestyle Assessment enables us to provide the customer with easy-to-interpret data on their everyday life and to explain the factors that affect their individual wellness. Due to this, the customer can understand how their choices affect their well-being,” notes Sami Hellgren, Personal Trainer and Entrepreneur at Fitness Center Balanssi.
Individual differences are remarkable. Some people can cope with a lot less sleep, whereas others find out that they could use a lot more.
“One of our customers learned that instead of working out in the morning, before managing the children’s morning routines, it might be a good idea to exercise in the evening and get a lot more out of it. This solution also reduces the morning stress because the customer is able to focus on their children.”
To All Age Groups and Fitness Levels
Fitness Center Balanssi provides the Firstbeat Lifestyle Assessment to both individual and corporate customers. In the corporate sector, the service is conducted, for example, to management groups, workers who work in particularly demanding conditions or people who suffer from health issues caused by passive work and inactive lifestyle.
“Recently I presented the Lifestyle Assessment to a corporate audience and explained what kinds of issues we are able to reveal and affect with the solution. After conducting the Lifestyle Assessment to all group members, the findings are analyzed and main issues tackled. The group members exercise under our surveillance and guidance for 7 months and after that, we will organize a follow-up measurement to see how well the goals were reached,” Hellgren explains.
Fitness Center Balanssi also has a few professional athletes as customers.
“Athletes have also worn the Bodyguard 2 measurement device in order to measure their stress levels. We have discovered interesting things about their wellness, Hellgren points out.”
A Specialist Tool for High-Quality Wellness Coaching
“Firstbeat Lifestyle Assessment brings more insight into a Personal Trainer’s job. The easy-to-conduct measurement enables us to see the individual’s everyday life and analyze their current stress,” Hellgren describes.
“Seeing the big picture is crucial. Lifestyle Assessment helps us recognize the wellness challenges that need to be tackled and this may cause significant changes, Hellgren sums up.”
