Fitness Assessment

A fitness assessment is a tool used by fitness professionals to gain an understanding of a client’s current physical ability, to best prescribe fitness advice aligned with your needs and goals. Through the duration of this test a client will be measured on a variety of attributes.

The tests conducted during the assessment include:

  • Resting Heart Rate
  • Body Mass Index
  • Body Composition 
  • Cardiovascular Endurance
  • Muscular Strength
  • Muscular Endurance
  • Flexibility

A fitness assessment is not an affirmation of progress it's a tool for monitoring your progress and gauging the strides you're making towards improved fitness. The cost for this comprehensive package, inclusive of both the initial assessment and the follow-up assessment, is just $35.

To purchase a fitness assessment, you can visit our Member Services Office in person or make your purchase directly through our website. Once you've made your purchase, a member of Fitness and Wellness team will contact you within three business days to schedule your assessment.
