Held throughout the year, these clinics include a series of fitness tests that help determine your current fitness level and provides a baseline to help chart your progress. The assessment covers all of the components of fitness, including: body composition, cardiopulmonary fitness, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and balance. An Exercise Physiologist will review the results using specialized fitness testing software.
These 75-minute group orientations, offered multiple times every month, provide a general introduction to our facility and demonstrate how to safely operate the exercise equipment. One of our Exercise Physiologists will explain exercise recommendations from the American College of Sports Medicine and be available for additional questions.
These quick and easy screenings can be performed and recorded by any Fitness Staff at almost any time. Stop by the Fitness Desk for more information.
This initial Fitness Assessment includes a series of fitness tests that help determine your current fitness level and provides a baseline with which to chart your progress. The assessment covers all the components of fitness, including: body composition, cardiopulmonary fitness, muscular strength, and flexibility. The results are used by the Exercise Physiologist to develop a customized plan for your Exercise Orientation.
Exercise Orientation usually follows the Fitness Assessment and will provide you with a general introduction to the equipment in our center and identify those best suited for your personalized exercise regimen. You will receive hands-on demonstrations of how to properly and safely operate the equipment and how best to achieve your personal fitness goals. The orientation will include strength training, cardiovascular exercise and flexibility.
The Re-Assessment should occur every 5-6 months as a follow-up to your original Fitness Assessment. By repeating the same tests from your previous assessment, this appointment will help you track your progress towards your goals. It is also a time to identify new goals and discuss adjustments to your current program.
During the Program Evaluation, the Exercise Physiologist will help you re-assess your personal fitness program, review and adjust current exercises, incorporate new goals and discuss suggestions that will enhance your progress. It is recommended that you schedule a Program Evaluation every 3 to 4 months.
