Starting a new fitness program is challenging, especially when you are unsure how and where to begin and which exercises to perform. Our testing goals are to collect health baseline data, which can be used to develop fitness goals and training programs, and to use as comparison for future testing evaluations. Let our professional staff assist you safely and effectively with our Fitness Assessment Services.

We have three main assessment services for you to choose. Explanations of each of these services are listed below. Read through the information, and then make a health-conscience decision as to the assessment service that will provide you with the most effective results.
