COMPREHENSIVE EXERCISE ASSESSMENT
Get the type of evaluation and advice that professional athletes enjoy.
Part I – Begin with an extensive assessment of your fitness. Tests include a body composition analysis, flexibility testing, upper- and lower-body strength assessment, and a submaximal treadmill test to estimate aerobic capacity and determine your optimal target heart-rate training zone. 50 minutes.
Part II – An exercise physiologist reviews your test results with you and compares them to norms for your age. Together, you’ll develop an exercise prescription for improving your fitness in areas important to you. 50 minutes.
Note: We suggest that you book these assessments prior to arrival. This service is for apparently healthy people with no major risk factors for vascular or heart disease. Men over 45 and women over 55 should speak with a Program Advisor about American College of Sports Medicine® guidelines for taking this test. You may need to take a Cardiac Stress Test first with a physician. If you are an experienced exerciser or competitive athlete, you may want to explore ways to improve your peak performance by doing a Metabolic Exercise Assessment.
