Catalyst Fit Testing

If you have fitness goals, you need to know your numbers.  This is how you personalize your program.  This is how you know the habits you are adopting are working for you.  This is how you create a sustainable habit. 

 

The scale is just one metric.  It's a valuable morning "mindful minute" to review the last 24-36 hours and set your day's intention.  It does not tell you that you are a fat burner, that you are creating and keeping lean mass, that you are optimizing your RMR while improving overall health. 

 

Too much data can be just as bad as too little.  Only you can decide what metrics motivate you and which overwhelm you, it's your journey.  We still feel these are key and therefore make testing accessible to all, not just our training clients.
