- Cardiovascular Assessment - tailored to your specific needs (treadmill, bicycle, arm ergometer, etc)
- Blood Pressure Assessment - just like at the doctors office but we will take the measurement during exercise as well

- Flexibility Screen and Postural Analysis - identifies postural deviations and movement limitations that may impact fitness training
Your Exercise Mentor will provide you with all of your results and an explanation of them within approximately one week after the assessments have been completed. We can provide copies of your information to your health care providers if you would like.
This is a free service. Personal training sessions will last 30-60 mins.
All exercise mentors will use The American College of Sports Medicine Guidelines for Exercise Testing and Prescription as they prescribe exercise.
