Fitness Assessments + Body Composition Testing
Know Your Numbers!
Fitness Assessments offer a picture of overall physical health by measuring muscle strength/endurance, flexibility, body composition, and submax cardiorespiratory fitness. Fitness Assessments are tailored to your desire, as all assessments included in the Fitness Assessment are optional. Standardized assessment protocols are used to measure your numbers against the baseline of your age/gender. When you know your numbers, you can specifically tailor your program to your needs, measure your progress, and identify any areas needing improvement.
