Top GYM Facility and Trainers in Atlanta
What is BluePrint Fitness?
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 Foundation To Working TOGETHER Towards Your Goals
What 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.
Measurements & Photos
One 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.

In 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 an 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.
Included 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.

In 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.
The fitness and wellness industry isn’t immune to fads and gimmicks. Heck, we’re arguably the prime example of it! So, how do you know if something’s a “flash in the pan” trend that will soon disappear or stay indefinitely? Unfortunately, that’s hard for the every day...
Time is our most precious commodity. Once it’s gone we never get it back. It’s finite and with today’s “go, go, go” environment it’s easy to put health and fitness on the back burner. However, I’ve noticed over the years those who prioritize exercise and nutrition...
