Personal Trainer Bios
Fitness assessments provide information needed to develop reasonable and attainable fitness goals. The results of a fitness assessment can provide you with information useful in making possible lifestyle decisions.
Personal trainers conduct a number of tests including blood pressure, height, weight, body composition, cardio-respiratory, flexibility, muscular strength and muscular endurance to provide a starting point to your fitness path.
Fitness Assessments are free with the purchase of 1 or more personal training sessions (for new clients only).
