DISCOVER YOUR FITNESS AGE
How old you are and how old you feel may be two different things. Your
fitness age is an indication of how well your body is holding up with the
passage of time. By learning your fitness age in each of five areas, you’ll
discover which areas stand to benefit most from your attention.
Part I – An exercise physiologist will administer the following tests:
- Body composition to assess fat and lean muscle mass
- Submaximal exercise test to estimate aerobic capacity and VO2 maximum
- Muscle strength and power testing, including upper and lower body
- Evaluation of balance
Part II – An exercise physiologist reviews your test results and designs an individual fitness plan to improve your fitness age.
$390 for parts I and II
ENHANCED POSTURE ANALYSIS
Poor posture may contribute to acute or chronic conditions that interfere with an active lifestyle, so it’s important to maintain correct alignment and balance in the way you sit, stand, walk and run. In this service, an exercise physiologist will use video analysis to evaluate your biomechanics, and recommend specific stretches or strengtheners to help you comfortably perform the activities that mean the most to you.
