Fitness Assessments measure your current level of fitness, aid in goal setting and tracking your progress, track a variety of health related components, and increase motivation. A fitness assessment provides a baseline measurement of cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, body composition, blood pressure and flexibility. Assessments are recommended prior to beginning an exercise program and throughout the progression of your exercise routine. All assessments are performed in the HLS Facility.
A Basic Fitness Assessment Includes:
Height & Weight
Resting Heart Rate /
Resting heart rate and blood pressure are important indicators to measure as you begin and progress in your fitness routine. A decrease in blood pressure and heart rate after engaging in a consistent fitness routine may be as a result of an increased cardiovascular health.
This measures the ratio of lean body mass to fat mass with skin fold measurements; using either a three-site or seven-site skinfold test.
Estimates the aerobic fitness level by performing a 9-12 minute test on the cycle ergometer.
Tests the ability of your muscle to exert a maximum force. This is assessed through a bicep curl test.
A sit-and-reach test is performed to assess your flexibility in the lower back and hamstrings. Flexibility in these areas is related to the health and function of the lower back.
