DROP-IN FITNESS SERVICES (FREE!)

  • Blood pressure screening
  • Resting Heart Rate
  • Height / weight
  • Body Mass Index
    This is a simple calculation that takes an individual's weight in kilograms and divides it by their height in meters squared. This is not a measure of fat mass, but is rather a tool used to assess how much a person's weight departs from the "normal" range. This assessment does not account for muscle mass, however, and should be used as a general guideline.
  • Body composition
    The purpose of this assessment is to determine the ratio of fat tissue and lean body mass when compared with body weight. This measurement is taken via a 3-site skinfold (that is gender specific) in order to measure the fat stores in the body that are subcutaneous (below the skin).
  • Heart Rate Training Zone
  • Stretching / foam rolling techniques
  • Proper exercise selection & technique
  • Fitness orientation
    Orientations include an overview of facilities available, review of fitness policies and instruction on proper use of the equipment.

*Please note: Drop-in services are available when an appointment is not in session.
