Integrated Fitness Assessment
Performed by one of our nationally certified personal trainers, our integrated fitness assessment will help you and your trainer gather baseline data, and help provide a basis for developing goals and effective exercise programs. Gathering and evaluating the various pieces of information will give the personal trainer a broader perspective of the client. The process and the data collected assist the trainer in identifying potential areas of concern and reasonable starting points for recommending modalities of exercise, along with intensities and volumes of exercise based on goals and fitness outcomes.
Our integrated fitness assessment evaluates the following areas of physical fitness: body composition, muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular capacity, flexibility, stability, and dynamic mobility.
There are many valid reasons for administering assessments to you as the personal training client. The data collected provides:
- Identification of current strengths and weaknesses that may affect program design and emphasis on specific training components
- Identification of areas of potential injury, or contraindications prior to program initiation
- A baseline for future comparisons of improvement or rate of progress
- Assistance in establishing appropriate intensities and volumes of exercise
- Assistance in clarification of short, intermediate, and long-term goals
The integrated fitness assessment is included at no charge with the purchase of a 10 or 15 session personal training package. The assessment can also be added to a 3 or 5 session personal training package for $20, or purchased separately for $30.
Body Composition Assessment
Many people rely on measuring weight alone to determine their ideal body weight. However, weight alone can be very misleading because a scale cannot tell the difference between a pound of fat and a pound of muscle.
Body composition, however, refers to the quality or make-up of total body mass, which can be divided into fat-free mass and fat mass. Excess body fat has been associated with a number of health risks including heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, and sleep disorders. It is also associated with reduced performance and an increased risk of injury. One of our nationally certified personal trainers can accurately measure your body composition to help you learn the make-up of your weight and in turn enable sensible decision-making regarding diet and exercise programs. Whether your goal is to lose fat, gain muscle mass, improve athletic performance, or maintain a healthy balance, knowing your body composition can be essential in helping you achieve your goals.
Body composition assessment is included in the Integrated Fitness Assessment or can be purchased separately for $10.
You must be a Student Recreation Center member or purchase a guest pass prior to each session taking place in order to register for personal training services.
