Services Offered:
Body Composition Testing

We have multiple options for calculating fat-free body mass and fat mass:

  • Three-point skinfold caliper test: measurements at triceps, suprailiac, and thigh for females, and the chest, abdominal, and thigh for males.
  • Waist-hip ratio: circumference measurements will be taken from the smallest portion of the hips and the largest portion of the abdomen.
  • TANITA Bioelectrical Impedance scale: step barefoot on a scale that estimates body fat by measuring the amount of resistance an electrical impulse encounters.

Trainers will also go through an analysis and explanation of these numbers after the testing is complete. Testing may take anywhere from 15-45.

Fitness Assessment

During a fitness assessment the trainer will go through a variety of tests to see where you currently are in your fitness goals. This includes: heart rate, blood pressure, height/weight, waist-to-hip ratio, body composition, cardiovascular, flexibility, muscular strength, and muscular endurance tests. Testing should be expected to take roughly one hour of submaximal work. Tennis shoes and loose fitting, breathable clothing is highly recommended.
