We wanted to develop a program that works within our regular fitness classes where clients can measure and rate their own progress. Essentially competing with yourself, we've written a list of benchmark points that everyone can work toward and "test" for on their own schedule, in their own time. Different activities include cardio and stamina, strength training, and self-improvement that provide opportunities to benchmark where you start, and a real, tangible goal to work toward. To make it even more appealing, for every client that hits ten achieved benchmarks, Devos Fitness will send you for a half-hour fitness photo session, so you can forever document your progress.
Below is our current list of Benchmark holders:
