Those who are interested in finding a baseline measurement of their overall fitness level can now visit the Student Recreation Center to take the Polar Body Age assessment. This assessment will evaluate blood pressure, find V-O-two max, test flexibility and muscular strength, and determine body composition. The detailed results are discussed with a personal trainer and emailed for your personal records. Assistant Director of Fitness and Wellness, Raquel McAfee says the assessment helps determine whether you are in shape or need improvement.
“Sometimes we think we’re fit or doing everything we need, but it pretty much makes it black and white for you. Are you on the right track or is there ways that you can improve?”
- Raquel McAfee
The assessment costs twenty-five dollars and is available to anyone with a membership at the Student Recreation Center.
