Anamnesis Parcours to premiere at FIBO 2018 - Tool for more training quality & customer loyalty available for live tests
Anamnesis parcours FIBO 2018
If you’re a professional who regularly records the fitness and health condition of your customers, you’re ensuring a clear advantage over the competition for yourself. Because only a well-founded anamnesis, or case history, lets you actually create individually tailored and regularly optimised training programmes for your customers. With the Anamnesis Parcours, FIBO in Cologne will introduce a powerful tool for trade visitors to test live onsite on 13 and 14 April 2018.
“As an additional benefit, customers will get an understanding of their training success on the basis of the collected data”, says FIBO director Silke Frank. “That’s motivating and especially important when you’re after young target audiences. Because they want rapid successes, which they like to capture by way of data, understand and, ideally, share with others.” The Anamnesis Parcours at FIBO will show fitness studios, personal trainers and physiotherapists the ideal sequencing of such an evaluation. It helps to find the optimal pieces of equipment and correctly interpret the results.
The project is implemented by the trade show in collaboration with the German Aerobics and Fitness Association (DFAV) under the leadership of its training director Prof. Dr. Theodor Stemper and its chairman Volker Ebener. Support is provided by DGSP – German Society for Sports Medicine and Prevention, GluckerKolleg, employees from the University of Wuppertal, F&G (the official publication of the DFAV association) and the German Association of Health Studios (BVGSD).
Test and learn live at FIBO
The Parcours begins with the filling in of a detailed case history questionnaire. It continues on to five stations for a comprehensive body analysis and endurance, strength, flexibility and coordination tests. “With that, we’re addressing the most important fitness components”, explains Prof. Dr. Theodor Stemper. “Performance in these segments is made possible by the cardiovascular and metabolic system, the skeletal muscles and the interplay between the nervous and the muscular system. With the help of the presented anamnesis and diagnosistools, these building blocks can be isolated for each exerciser or considered in their interaction.”
DGSP specialists will be on hand to demonstrate how to interpret the obtained data. “On this basis, trainers and sports scientists can then create a matching workout plan, and physiotherapists a treatment plan”, says DSGP general secretary Prof. Dr. med. Rüdiger Reer. “If the sequence of tests is conducted regularly, the effectiveness of the plan can be checked. Then, a new individually tailored plan can be developed in line with the achieved success.”
Body scan and bioelectrical impedance analysis
In health- and performance-oriented training alike, the main customer focus is on a positive change of the body shape. That’s why the Anamnesis Parcours at FIBO also includes devices for body scans and bioelectrical impedance analyses. “Capturing and rendering body changes requires the use of complex processes”, says Prof. Dr. Stemper. “The weight alone doesn’t provide any information about the extent to which bones, fat mass and muscle mass contribute to the weight. Technical aids like bio-impedance devices, however, provide us with exact information, and that’s particularly important for health because abdominal fat, for example, is considered dangerous, but fat in the arms and legs less so.”
Participation free of charge
Fitness studio operators, trainers, personal trainers and physiotherapists can test the Anamnesis Parcours at FIBO free of charge and get ideas for setting up their own anamnesis area. In order to avoid long wait times, however, interested visitors should register for the Anamnesis Parcours ahead of time by visiting www.fibo.com/anamneseparcour
