Fitness Assessments

A fitness assessment is a series of tests that helps your trainer determine your physical fitness level and aids in developing your personalized program. The results can identify your strengths and weaknesses in relation to your physical fitness and help in setting attainable fitness goals.  

A fitness assessment is a valuable tool used to establish baseline measurements and can be used to monitor your performance and assess your progress throughout your exercise training.

To get a fitness assessment and begin your own personal training program, we invite you to take advantage of our wonderful personal training services and sign up at Member Services. 

Benefits of a Fitness Assessment:

  • Assess current fitness levels
  • Help develop and establish a fitness program
  • Identify possible areas of health or injury risk
  • Aid in motivation
  • Evaluate and track progress
  • Other tools of assessment used in our department

Polar Body Age System

The Polar BodyAge System looks at the following combination of factors to define what it means to be healthy and assess these factors before generating a unique and thorough assessment of your physical body age:

  • How healthy your heart is
  • How strong you are today
  • Your flexibility
  • Biometrics
  • Blood Pressure
  • Body Mass Index
  • Body Fat
  • Strength
  • Flexibility ranking

The program then develops graphically presented statistics to be used as baseline information to develop a fitness program for you. It also provides your personal trainer a complete picture of your current physical fitness.

Here's positive proof that while you may think you can't control life as natural aging processes, you can be 5, 10, or even 15 years younger. All it takes is 30 minutes and it's done! Take your Polar BodyAge test today and see for yourself!

Bioelectrical Impedance

Bioelectrical Impedance (BI) is considered one of the most accurate and accessible methods of screening body fat. It is used in clinician's offices, health clubs and hospitals across a spectrum of ages and body conditions. Muscles, blood vessels and bones are body tissues having a high water content that conduct electricity easily. Body fat is tissue that has little electric conductivity. The Body Fat Analyzer sends an extremely weak electrical current of 50 kHz and 0.5 mA through your body to determine the amount of total body water. The weak electrical current is not felt while operating the Body Fat Analyzer. The body fat percentage is then calculated by a formula that uses the measured body water along with five factors: electric resistance, height, weight, age, and gender.

The Weinstein Center offers additional health and nutrition assessments through our Wellness Program.
