Fitness Testing and Exercise Prescription
Through exercise testing focusing on VO2 MAX, flexibility, back strength and grip strength, this core program establishes a baseline for clients' physical fitness and prescribes a program of exercise to increase levels of physical fitness based on clients' health/fitness goals.
This core program uses metabolic testing to determine an individual’s resting metabolic rate and develop tailored strategies for weight loss, gain or maintenance. Calorie budgeting is important for these goals. Upping Your Metabolism class is required before metabolic testing.
The primary goal of this core program is to identify clients’ stress levels. Stress management services include biofeedback and education in stress relief techniques, positive coping skills and detecting cognitive distortions. Stress Management class is required before biofeedback testing.
Health and Wellness Education Class
The main goal of this core program is to increase clients’ positive health behaviors through education. Education topics include healthy lifestyles, increased resiliency, preventing chronic disease through healthy living habits and self-care.
This core program includes an assessment of an individual's tobacco status, their readiness to change, a discussion of possible options for becoming tobacco-free, and appropriate referral to tobacco cessation resources.
