Sample Reports


Fitness Assessment

Fitness Assessment is at the heart of the Fitness Analyst. With over 120 fitness tests, it has the most comprehensive testing library of any software system in the world. This gives you more flexibility when creating your testing protocols and permits you to easily adapt to specialty populations.

The Fitness Analyst supports all of the most commonly used fitness assessments including skinfold pinch bodyfat, cycle ergometry (with a new ergometry wizard to walk you through an accurate testing procedure) and treadmill tests for cardiovascular fitness, pulmonary tests, a broad variety of strength and endurance tests (push-up, sit-up, crunch, max bench press, leg press, and many more), and a number of flexibility tests (including the sit and reach and modified sit and reach).

The software features support for the “Wellness-Fitness Initiative” (firefighter) tests, the Rikli-Jones Senior Fitness Test, and a complete page for performing and tracking the results of President’s Council fitness testing. We also support the NCYFS youth tests and all of the tests discussed in both the ACSM’s “Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription” and the CSEP’s CPAFLA.

The Fitness Analyst will permit you to create your own fitness tests and to customize the feedback given to your clients based on their results.

When you perform bodyfat testing, you can provide results based on the norms from the ACSM/Cooper Clinic, the YMCA or the US NHANES studies. When performing cardiovascular capacity testing (VO2Max) you can select from the ACSM/Cooper, the CPAFLA (Canadian), the YMCA or the UK Allied-Dunbar study. Fitness Analyst can also use metric units with a simple selection in the configuration menu. No other testing system offers you the flexibility of the Fitness Analyst!

The true test measure of our software, however, comes when it is time to provide results to your clients. The reports that you print will truly be the most important way for you to illustrate the professionalism of your facility. Fitness Analyst’s reports are well-designed, colorful, and very easy to read. The will, without question, provide you with the sophisticated, professional image for which you strive!

Medical Screening

Medical Screening in Fitness Analyst is provided in the form of three questionnaires: the ACSM Screening Questionnaire (as revised in the ACSM "Black Book"), the PARQ, and our own "Medical Health Questionnaire" (MHQ). The ACSM and PARQ questionnaires are used to determine whether someone should consult a physician for more detailed testing before having a fitness assessment or beginning exercise.

The MHQ asks all of the questions not found on the ACSM and PARQ instruments: family history, other disease conditions, orthopedic injuries, prescriptions, etc.

Once data has been entered into the system, you can search for clients based on the results for any medical question or on the overall screening results (e.g. "All At-Risk Participants").

Exercise Programming

Exercise Programming in the Fitness Analyst provides a suite of powerful tools for creating tailored exercise programs for your clients. Choose from hundreds of free-weight, stability ball, band/tubing, Yoga and Pilates exercises when creating workouts or add your own. Exercises come with photographs and descriptions that you can print right on your workout cards. Add your own photos with any digital camera!

Our new Intelli-Max workout template technology lets you create workouts in mere seconds while supporting features such as complex set patterns, specification of lift tempo and inter-set rest. You can even create multiple templates following a periodization pattern of varying intensities.

When finished constructing your workout, you can print either a simple workout grid, a detailed grid with pictures and description, just the pictures, or a “workout schedule” wherein multiple workouts are automatically coordinated over time.

Client Service

Earn the trust and loyalty of your clients by helping them clarify their fitness goals. Our goals counseling area features a “motivational interview” format as well as user-definable goal check boxes and a place to record your clients’ commitments to healthier living.

The Fitness Analyst also provides an Exercise Habits and Interests page for you to record each client’s preferred exercise modality as well as information about their exercise frequency, years exercising, typical intensity, etc.

The Fitness Analyst features a variety of attractive, professional Reports and Charts. These individual and group reports and charts are the best way to communicate results to participants or to funding authorities.

We have spared no effort in creating the most compelling, professional reports possible. You can even export reports as PDF files for easy emailing. There are literally dozens of reports and charts covering both individual and group analyses. You can even customize the reports or create your own. See links to sample reports above.
