  • A health screen consists of resting pulse, blood pressure, body composition, and target heart rate range.
  • A physical fitness test consists of assessing and evaluating cardiovascular capacity, muscle strength, muscle endurance, and flexibility.
  • Other assessments include posture analysis, skills test for athletes, and jogging technique.

When was the last time you changed your program? Variety is a key component in an exercise routine. If it has been longer than eight weeks since your last program, it’s time for something new. If you are interested in a new program, I would recommend speaking with one of our staff members and setting up an appointment.

One-on-One Personal Training: You will receive step by step instructions throughout your workout.

Exercise Instruction: Maybe you just need some help learning a few exercises, or would like to expand your exercise repertoire.

Program Design: You know a lot of exercises, but you’re not sure how to get them together for a program that will specifically target your goals.

Re-assessment: You have been working towards a goal and need to check your progress.
