Cleveland Clinic and Pro Fitness Program Assessment Workshop

Posted April 09, 2014 in News, Blog

On Sunday May 4th, 2014 from 10:30am -6:30pm Cleveland Clinic's Director of Exercise Physiology, James Manson, will be conducting a fitness assessment workshop at the Fitness Firm in Burlington Ontario. Click here for a complete bio on James. 

James has developed a new assessment software for the Pro Fitness Program combining the most recent science and data for both general and senior populations in the areas of musculoskeletal and cardiovascular health. We have added some new functional screens and normative data that ranks health related risks as opposed to performance based standards. This will allow us to continue to bridge the gap between the medical and fitness community by providing the most current and relevant assessment standards in the entire fitness industry. The Cleveland Clinic charges in the neighbourhood of $3,000 for this assessment and the Pro Fitness Program is elated to bring this tool to our clubs and members. 


Click on the PDF below to register for the event through fax or email. A receipt will be emailed out once processed. We will require a minimum amount of club registrations to cover costs and will not process payments until that level is reached. 

Here is what is included in your fee:


  • A download link to the new assessment software for I-Pad or PC
  • A full day of assessment training for up to 10 employees per organization
  • A list of the required assessment tools to complete the new protocols
  • A link to training videos to complete some of the assessments
