Would being on a Leader Board change the way you workout?
What if you could see your level of fitness performance relative to your fellow gym goers everyday? Would this motivate you to push yourself to new levels of fitness? At Brad Kolowich Personal Training Studio we have modified and implemented an age-old sporting event staple into the gym, our very own version of a Leader Board. Our leader board has not only motivated and pushed clients to achieve more physically but also developed a heightened positive energy in the gym environment, dedication to workouts, and most importantly a sense of community amongst our clients. The leader board features various fitness test which highlight strength, power, and endurance.
Our current leaders age range from 27 to 59 years old. There are separate categories for male, female and overall leaders. Each fitness test is administered by a personal trainer and has objective rules for execution. Tests like the V-max, half sit-up, bench squat, and plank are timed test. Other such as the push-ups, deadlift, pull-ups, 95 lbs. squat and dips are measured until failure. We regularly evaluate each client using this set standard of fitness tests as well as doing body measurements, not only to give them a chance at getting on or bettering their score on the leader board, but as a tool for us to constantly evaluate how to continue to help push them to their ultimate level of fitness.
Pictured below is Robert, 29, from Norcross, Ga. Robert is a husband, business owner, and father of two young children, yet Robert still makes it a priority to get 5 training sessions a week in with Brad. He is the current dead lift record holder at Brad Kolowich Jr. Personal Training Studio. Brad specially designed a personalized mass building program for Robert which he routinely stuck to in and out of the gym. In 12 weeks, Robert added inches of muscle to his chest, biceps, legs and shoulders as well as a 100 lbs. increase in both his deadlift and squat.
