by Dave Kenyon, Gold’s Gym Hudson Valley

The first flight of the 2013 Gold’s Gym Challenge will launch January 2nd!  To be prepared,  Dave Kenyon has recorded a short, “how to” video on his best practices when it comes to taking measurements.

Taking Measurements scree shot

As a reminder:

Be sure the tape is always kept level and snug but not so snug that it compresses against the skin too much.

Waist – measure AT belly button keeping the tape measure level around the entire circumference.

Hips – From the side, have the member stand with their feet together. Place the tape around the widest point of the glutes.

Right thigh – Have the member stand with their right side facing the employee/personal trainer with their feet about 12 inches apart. Wrap the tape around the thigh just below the right glute.

Use an accurate and tested scale to measure their weight.
