Fitness/Wellness Assessments

Fitness Assessments

Fitness assessments outline an individual's current fitness level and serve as the precursor to setting goals and starting a new exercise program. 

Physiological testing is also done to determine baseline measurements, identify areas for improvement, assess progression, and educate the client.  Available assessments include:

  • Circumference measurements
  • Flexibility
  • Height and weight
  • Resting heart rate
  • Estimated body fat
  • Target heart rate
  • Three-minute step test
  • Squat assessment
  • Plank test
