Additional Services:

Interested in knowing your body fat percentage, body weight, or body measurements?

One of our certified personal trainers will complete a Fitness Assessment Data Sheet on the first day of training.  There are sections you will be able to list your fitness goals, types of training desired, upper body muscular endurance testing, flexibility and cardio-testing.

The trainers will use skinfold calipers to determine body fat percentage, measuring tape to find body measurements, and a digital scale for weight. The trainers will assess the results to identify your strengths and weaknesses and offer suggestions to help. This should get done about once a month.
