The Student Recreation and Fitness Center (Rec Center) Assessment Program offers fitness assessments to students and Rec Center members. Looking to challenge yourself in the next Strongest Coyote Challenge or to see where you stand in your fitness?
The Rec Center Assessment Program can help you see where you are physically, show you the areas to improve on, and check your well being to help you reach your goals. There are three different types of assessments offered.
The first assessment is a general assessment, in which you are able to see where you stand in all the components of fitness. The general assessment tests your muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardio respiratory endurance, body composition and flexibility.
The second assessment offered is the functional movement assessment. The functional movement assessment helps identify weak areas that are preventing you from reaching your fitness goals.
This assessment will test your balance, posture, flexibility and mobility.
Last but not least, the third assessment is the anthropometric measurement.
This assessment is the simplest and focuses on testing your heart rate, blood pressure, height, weight, body composition and circumference.
All tests are located at the Personal Training Office of the Rec Center.
Make sure to make an appointment in order to take advantage of the free fitness assessments and help reach your goals.
For questions and answers, contact Barry Greene Jr. at the Rec Center.
