  • What Is a Fitness Assessment?

    A fitness assessment includes body weight, hydration level and a reading of body composition which reveals the proportion of fat and fat-free tissue in the body. Another component of the fitness assessment is a full body circumference measurement.

  • Why Should You Get a Fitness Assessment?

    Once you have this information, you and your personal trainer can put together a proper fitness program that revolves around improving your current physical status.

    If you don't have a personal trainer, you can take this information and set a platform for yourself to improve upon based on your fitness assessment numbers. Completing your fitness assessment is a start toward bettering your health regardless of what your goals are. Knowing your numbers will empower you to make informed decisions about your health.  

  • What About Hydration?

    Healthy Total Body Water Percentage
    For a healthy adult: Female 45–60% / Male 50–65% 

    Recommended Daily Water Intake
    The human body requires a minimum of 3 liters up to a gallon of water on a daily basis.
