Fitness Consultation

A Fitness Consultation includes a series of measurements that help you better understand your current health status and physical fitness levels compared to the set norms for your age and gender. There are an endless number of possible tests and measurements that your trainer may use to determine your baseline fitness level. The specific tests used will depend on your health and fitness goals, the trainer's area of expertise, and the type of exercise regime being planned. All Fitness Consultations will be conducted in the Fitness Suite in the Student Recreation Center.
