Frequently Asked Questions

Question: Why test before and after warming up?
Answer: If range of motion improves as you warm up there is a good chance we can permanently improve your range of motion with a Bulletproof program or 1 on 1 Coaching.

If range of motion stays the same or gets worse when you warm up you need to speak with an Active Life Coach.

Question: I feel pain during the assessment. Should I knock out some heavy back squats and maybe 10 or 20 max effort sprints?

Answer: Please no. Contact us with the red support button or click here to connect with one of our coaches.

Question: My hips hurt but I passed this test. What should I do?
Answer: Great question. It’s possible you have a strength balance issue but we need more info to be sure. Contact us with the red support button or click here to connect with one of our coaches.

Question: My hip range of motion is excellent but my squat depth is horrible. Please help. What do I do?
Answer: Don’t fret. Let’s check ankle range of motion.

OH NO! I already checked my ankles and they are fine. Should I look for a long term care facility in my area?

Probably not. Please contact an Active Life Coach. We’ll get you taken care of.
