UREC provides knowledgeable staff to help you get started. We provide complimentary fitness orientations and assessments.

A fitness assessment is an individualized appraisal of your current fitness status through a variety of physical tests and questionnaires. The assessment establishes a baseline. It is used to develop goals and establish an effective exercise program. The Fitness Assessment begins with a questionnaire and health history. We take you through a series of tests to measure your body composition, cardiovascular conditioning, muscular strength and endurance and your flexibility. Based on your questionnaire and test results, your fitness assessment will be used to tailor activities to meet your fitness needs.
