Fitness Assessments: Fitness assessments address any health related concerns and set forth goals to start new exercise programs. Physiological testing is also done to determine baseline measurements, identify areas for improvement, assess progression, and educate the client. The following software is used to perform fitness assessments:
Microfit: Tests seven dimensions of fitness including weight, heart rate, blood pressure, body composition, cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength, and flexibility.
Korr Meta-Check: This metabolic testing software measures resting metabolic rate, caloric output based on lifestyle and daily activity, and energy/calorie expenditure during exercise. This assessment is useful in determining an individual’s unique caloric needs and nutrition planning.
Price: Student members ($25), UREC members ($35)
Nutrition Assessments: Learning about proper nutrition can not only enhance workout goals, but overall wellness. Participants receive an initial modified fitness assessment, then record food logs and discuss them with UREC staff during a follow-up visit.
Price: Student members ($25), UREC members ($35)
Fitness Center Orientations: Learn about the equipment available in the Donna Axum Fitness Center. A staff member will demonstrate how to properly use cardiovascular and strength equipment, and can answer questions about exercise.

Assisted Personal Training
Assisted personal training is a program focused on individuals with various types of impairments that are unable to execute workouts without assistance. The purpose of this program is to help individuals work towards becoming more physically independent in everyday life. Our assisted personal training program can be utilized by participants with permanent or temporary impairments including those that are high level injuries to those who have acute injuries.
Our program is staffed with certified personal trainers who will work together with participants to execute an individualized workout plan based on their goals. The first session will start with a fitness assessment to gather basic knowledge and baseline numbers to determine the physical fitness level of the client. Two personal trainers will work with participants using adaptive equipment and creative techniques to execute safe and effective workouts specifically for you. Pool workouts with your trainer are also an option.
To get started we offer a free consultation with a personal trainer to talk about your fitness goals and adaptive needs. Assisted personal training services are free to all students and faculty members with high level and acute impairments based on the information provided during the consultation.
No registration is necessary for these events. Students interested in starting a program or participating in any programs offered at University Recreation please contact Jessica Graham Graduate Assistant for Fitness/Wellness at 479 575-6080 or email@example.com.
