Orientations

An orientation is a brief tour of the facility and equipment options in the exercise room. Orientation consists of an introduction to the different pieces of equipment, how they work, and how they can be adjusted. Scheduling an orientation appointment ahead of time is highly recommended. Orientations are free and usually around 30 minutes in length.

Small Group Training

Small group training provides a fun, collaborative environment for up to 8 participants to learn new exercise techniques. Classes may be themed with an end-goal, involve development of a skillset, or simply provide workouts that are different than traditional exercises. These classes meet twice per week over the course of 5 weeks.

Fitness Policies

Personal Training

Our personal trainers provide you with single or combined services which include: fitness assessments, nutrition coaching, exercise prescription and personalized training. Whatever your goals, a personal trainer will guide you with one-on-one sessions and a personalized training program, absolutely FREE!

Our goal is to educate and motivate you to enhance personal responsibility for your health. You can take advantage of all or just one of the services.

Your first session, typically, begins with a fitness assessment that will detail your strengths and highlight areas for improvement. The results will be used to design an exercise program specific to your goals. The fitness assessment takes approximately one hour and will test the following areas:

  • Height/Weight
  • Resting Heart Rate
  • Blood Pressure
  • Movement Screening
  • Body Composition
  • Cardiovascular Fitness
  • Muscular Strength
  • Muscular Endurance

A second session will then be scheduled with your personal trainer to go through the designed workout. Periodic re-tests can also be schedule to gauge the degree to which you are accomplishing the goals set (at least 6 weeks apart). It is recommended that you schedule pre and post test with the same personal trainer.

Nutrition

How better to encourage a healthful and balanced lifestyle than with good nutrition? A diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains and vegetable proteins has health benefits no one can deny.

Nutrition is also an important aspect of exercise training. Nutrition coaching sessions will educate and help you make positive dietary changes to achieve your optimal health. Note, coaches do not write food plans (the sample plans are written by registered dietitians); they provide basic knowledge of healthy eating and how to incorporate them into your lifestyle.

To register for nutrition please fill out project fit application and choose nutrition.
