Fitness Assessments are available to fitness center students, and include body composition, blood pressure, waist-to-hip ratio, cardiovascular fitness, flexibility, muscular strength and muscular endurance assessments. We also offer a functional movement assessment. Completing an assessment will help you determine what areas you need to emphasize in your program. A post-assessment will help you measure results from your dedicated efforts. Make an appointment for your assessment at the fitness center front desk. There is no charge for this service.

 

The Functional Movement Screen is a ranking and grading system created to document movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, functional limitations and asymmetries are readily identified. Basic movement pattern limitations can reduce the effects of functional training, physical conditioning, and district proprioception (body awareness). At the heart of the system is the Functional Movement Screen Score, which helps to target the problem and track progress. The scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns. Make an appointment at the fitness center front desk.
