Fitness Assessments

Find Out Your Starting Fitness Level!

Comprehensive Fitness Assessments - $15

During this one-hour session body composition, cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance and flexibility will be measured to give the participant an idea of their starting fitness level. Assessments can determine what areas need improvement and are an essential first step in fitness programming. Register for your assessment at the Campus Recreation Center Welcome Desk or Riverview Fitness Center today!

Note: This session does not include an exercise prescription. You must sign up for a personal training package to receive an individualized fitness program.

Body Composition Test - $5

During this quick 5-minute test we will determine your body fat percentage. You can choose the skin-fold caliper method or Biometric Impedance Analysis both of which can assess your lean mass. Although body composition is an important component of fitness, it is important to assess the other components including cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength and endurance and flexibility. These tests are all offered in our comprehensive fitness assessment option listed above or any personal training package listed below.
