What To Expect From Our Atlanta Fitness Center

Our Atlanta Fitness center has helped transform many lives and bodies with our unique Blueprint assessment plan. Our unique assessment allows us to layout a foundation of what you need to do, how often, and is entirely customized to each member’s skill level. Learn More

Our Philosophy: At Blueprint Fitness, we believe in, first, moving correctly. Then, moving often. You can’t reach any goal without a good PLAN. Then, you BUILD upon it using your abilities and limitations. Finally, you SUCCEED through ongoing progressions to reach new levels.  We will be honest with you, we will push you, we will hold you accountable, and we want you to have fun. The results will happen! Plan. Build. Succeed.

Below is Our Foundation as we begin working TOGETHER towards your goals! 

Functional MovementWhat is the FMS? The FMS is a 7 movement test which helps us find body imbalances, limitations, and dangerous movement patterns so that they can be addressed. The FMS also indicates an individual’s readiness to perform exercises so that realistic goals can be set and achieved.

How is the FMS Scored? Each of the 7 movements are worth a total of 3 points. The highest score someone can receive on their FMS is 21 and lowest is 0. As the trainer instructs you through each movement they look for faulty movement patters, balance issues, and any restrictions. If any pain is associated with the movement the participant will receive a score of 0 even if they complete the exercise perfectly. If no pain is associated with the movement then the score can range from as low as 1 to a perfect score of 3.

How is the FMS used? The FMS score is then applied to your Blueprint plan using specific exercises to correct and improve any movement issues. We do not take a “one size fits all” approach to our training. Every members ‘Blueprint’ is totally customized like a perfectly tailed pair of jeans.

Why do we use the FMS? At Blueprint Fitness we use the FMS because it helps with injury prevention. Those with low scores on certain movements are much more likely to get hurt performing exercises that require similar patterns. The ‘Blueprint’ is what gives us the ability to tailor the program specifically to your skill level to help prevent injury.

Mer Before-AfterOne of the most accurate ways to determine improvement is comparing physical measurements and photos over time. At Blueprint Fitness all B-Fit members are assessed every 2-3 months. In addition to photos and measurements, members also have their body fat percentage, blood pressure, and pulse monitored.

To the left is former B-Fit member and now Trainer Meredith whose dedication to the Blueprint Program has produced huge results.  In addition to losing 20 lbs and 7% body fat her dress size has gone from a 12 to 4! To see the success of other B-Fit members click here.

 

Handstand ProgressionIn life we learn through progressions. As babies we first learn to hold our head up, then we learn to crawl, followed by standing, then walking and eventually running. At Blueprint Fitness we have created a series of progressions for skill, strength, and kettlebell movements. Each progression starts at the beginner level and is designed for those who have never even exercised. These progressions become increasingly more difficult leading up to advanced and elite level movements. Members are challenged to master each level before they advance to the next.

To the left is example of just 2 out of the 12 steps for our handstand progression. Trainer Genevieve is demonstrating a headstand (step #5) while Head Trainer Josh is performing a strict handstand (step #12).  Just between these two movements there are 6 steps!!! Learning through progressions is the ONLY way to train correctly AND safely to see lasting results.

 

Toni MobilityIncluded in each B-Fit member's Blueprint are pre and post workout mobility exercises. These exercises are designed to help improve mobility, stability, and/or flexibility. The exercises given to each member depend on their FMS results. We only target one or two areas at a time so effective change can be made.

To the right, Toni our Mobility instructor is demonstrating a motor control and hamstring mobility drill.

LEARN ABOUT BLUEPRINT FITNESS

  1. Our Story

    Blueprint Fitness BrothersIn 2012, three brothers by the names of Jeremiah, Joshua, and Shane developed a vision for a revolutionary, new approach to fitness. Prior to this vision, all three brothers played football for years, but unfortunately ended up sustaining significant weight gain and injuries. Joshua (middle) began studying concepts such as types of body movement, methods in pain reduction, and overall human anatomy. This is when the idea for Blueprint Fitness was born.

    Blueprint Fitness is designed to help people reach their specific fitness goal.  Whether you are trying to lose weight, tone up, build muscle, or reduce body fat % the Blueprint Program can help you.   The program is for those who value hard work, dedication, and holding themselves relentlessly accountable.

  2. What Makes Blueprint Fitness Different

    What makes Blueprint Fitness different is that it has truly personalized the group training concept. You are given a ‘blueprint’ designed specifically for your limitations and abilities. At Blueprint Fitness, testing methods are used to gauge improvement in muscle balance, body awareness, and strength. Your program is laid out before you and can be adjusted based on your progress. It’s like getting personal training, but in a small group setting and at a group price!!!

    The Blueprint training style is completely different than other fitness trends. Their focus is on the ‘burn’, ours is on the movement. Their focus is on reps, our focus is on form. Your goal is to master movement patterns. The by product is a lean, fit, strong, mobile body free of pain.

    Blueprint Fitness is entirely based on personal and one-on-one interaction in order to develop a “blueprint” for each individual.  

    Our Unique Approach

    With a unique approach and so many opportunities for an overall improvement on your health, it’s hard to consider any other option. As a person trains at Blueprint Fitness, their strength, body awareness, and muscle balance are all monitored and tested to track improvements. Blueprint Fitness is the only way to achieve personal training in a small group fitness setting for an affordable price.

    Many other fitness groups in Atlanta are obsessed with focusing on the “burn” of a workout. Uniquely, Blueprint Fitness is entirely focused on the movement. We focus on form and patterns in movement. The ultimate result is a body that it is in the best shape of its life; it’s fit, lean, mobile, strong, and completely pain-free.

    The ultimate first goal at Blueprint Fitness is to help individuals begin moving their bodies in the right way, and then often. Blueprint Fitness strives to help individuals work out a solid plan for their fitness goals. From there, they build upon according to their personal strengths and weaknesses. As the training progresses, new levels and heights are reached that were never even visible before. New programs are constantly being developed at Blueprint Fitness, and members are continually reaching and surpassing their goals. Blueprint Fitness is the ultimate, new age solution to fitness and well being.
