Fitness Assessments
This is a valuable tool in assessing fitness ability. It also acts as a good baseline before beginning any exercise program. Appointments last 30-45 minutes. You should dress comfortably (preferably athletic attire) and must wear athletic shoes.

Before a Fitness Assessment can be done, please print and fill out the ACSM Health Status Questionnaire (PDF).

The Fitness Assessment consists of: 

  • Height/weight measurements

  • Body Composition

  • 3-minute step test

  • Push-ups

  • Curl-ups

  • Sit and reach 

Equipment Orientations
This appointment will familiarize you with both strength and cardio equipment in the fitness center. This is recommended if you have never used strength or cardio equipment. The coordinator shows proper form and instruction to prevent injury. Appointments last 30-60 minutes.

This is for individuals who want their own customized training program. The coordinator will meet with you to discuss your exercise objectives and will then create a personal program tailored to your needs. This is then followed up with a second appointment to go over the routine. Appointments last 15-30 minutes.
