  Fitness Assessment Services
 

A fitness assessment is a systematic process of objectively gathering measurable data about your physical state and includes tests such as resting heart rate, body composition, movement, muscular endurance, flexibility and aerobic endurance.

A certified personal trainer will ask questions regarding health history and current level of fitness such as: vitals, height, weight, resting heart rate, etc.

Assessments can be done in-person at the RWC or virtually. All in-person assessments will require patrons to wear masks, socially distance as much as possible, and all spaces will be cleaned and disinfected before and after use. Any one on one components of the assessment will be conducted in a large space so socially distancing can be maintained. All physical contact between the trainer and patron will be minimized. Virtual assessment's will be conducted via Zoom or alternate virtual platform based on client preference.
