Fitness Assessment & Sports Fit Assessment
This is a stand alone service that provides a Fitness Physical with a summary report & exercise prescription.
This Physical is like an annual checkup, but for your fitness level. It is intended to help you meet your fitness goals, and decrease your risk of Chronic diseases. It includes an evaluation of your physical fitness, reviews your current health, and provides a summary report that identifies your strengths and weaknesses.

- Core Strength
- Balance and Coordination
- Aerobic Endurance
Summary Report: Once you have completed the evaluation, you will will receive a hard copy summary of findings, which includes exercises that you can work on with one of our trainers or own your own.
Personalized Exercise Prescription: Your exercise prescription will include specific interventions for exercise dose, intensity, and frequency based on the results of your evaluation. You will get a packet of exercises that will target your weaknesses and a list recommendations and referrals to other professionals as appropriate.
