Fitness Assessments and Orientations

Fitness Assessments

A fitness assessment addresses health related concerns and sets goals for new exercise programs. Physiological testing is also done to determine baseline measurements, identify areas for improvement, assess progression and educate the client.

The following dimensions of fitness will be tested during an assessment:

  • Height and weight
  • Heart rate
  • Blood pressure
  • Body composition
  • Cardiorespiratory endurance
  • Muscular strength
  • Flexibility

Fitness Orientations

These one-time sessions introduce new users to the equipment available in the FRC. A trained staff member will demonstrate how to properly use cardio machines and weight equipment, and can answer general exercise questions.

Orientations are not designed to prescribe exercise plans, but rather to assist patrons with proper equipment use. Orientations are complimentary; however, you must still register for an appointment.
