Fitness Assessment
A fitness assessment is an excellent way to begin your personal workout program. Fitness Assessments help determine your individual baseline fitness level by measuring your individual strengths and weaknesses. The results of the fitness assessment assist in determining the best fitness program for your individual needs.

A fitness assessment includes the following assessments:

  • Resting heart rate and blood pressure
  • Circumferences and body composition
  • Muscular strength and endurance
  • Cardiovascular fitness and flexibility
  • Postural Anaylsis Assessment
  • Overhead Squat Assessment

A fitness assessment is required before you begin personal training and is included in the cost of all personal training packages.

We offer certification classes through the American Red Cross throughout the year. These classes are blended learning which means that participants must complete online modules and attend an in-person class. Once a participant completes and passes all online modules and in-person class(es) they will receive their certification from the American Red Cross.
