FREE Fitness Assessment & Exercise Prescription

The FITNESS ASSESSMENT is a series of tests where we measure Resting Heart Rate and Blood Pressure, BMI, Body Composition, Strength and Endurance, and Flexibility. We’ll explain each test, how you did and how we can help you improve. We’ll discuss your goals, the time you have to exercise, and anything else that will help us to come up with an exercise program specifically for you.

The next step is the EXERCISE PRESCRIPTION where your fitness coach walks you through the exercise plan - from how to perform each exercise, duration, how much weight to use, how many sets, reps, and any other details. The end result will be a workout plan tailored to your specific needs and goals.

Target Heart Rate Calculator

During exercise, you want to elevate your heart rate to strengthen your heart while avoiding rates that endanger it.

Use our Target Heart Rate Calculator to find the safe heart rate for people your age during exercise. If you're beginning an exercise program, aim for the low end of this range. If you’ve been exercising for a while, you can aim for a higher target rate.
