Session 1: Fitness Consultation and Assessment

In order to get you to where you need to be, our team needs to understand where you are currently  in relation to the five components of fitness. The five components of fitness include body composition, cardiovascular endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility. During the fitness assessment we will identify your previous level of physical fitness, current physical abilities, height, weight, age and any known past or current physical issues. This will be the 1st of 3 pre-scheduled appointments with the wellness coordinator.

Session 2: Education

During your 2nd scheduled appointment, the wellness coordinator will orientate you to gym equipment and its proper use by giving a step by step demonstration.  Then you will be given the opportunity to show what you learned  by taking your own test run on the equipment.  Our mission is to build your confidence in the use of gym equipment and increase your level of understanding in accomplishing your fitness goals. 

Session 3: Planning and Goal setting

The wellness coordinator will introduce you (the member) to available group classes (RPM, Body Pump, yoga, pound etc.)  Additionally the wellness coordinator will assist you with goal setting and developing a fitness plan for moving forward on your fitness journey.

We are here for guidance and support!  Please make sure you stop by to let our team know how you are doing and don’t hesitate to ask questions!
