KickStart: Personalized Fitness Assessment and Exercise Prescription
Through the KickStart Program, our certified Fitness Specialists work with members age 21 and older in a one-on-one fitness assessment to determine your current fitness level, discuss your desires for health, fitness, and quality of life, and to determine appropriate pathways to arrive at your goals. Elements evaluated through assessment are:
- Vital signs
- Body composition through circumference measurements, caliper skin fold testing and/or digital bioelectrical impedance analysis for water, muscle and body fat analysis
- Muscular strength
- Overall flexibility
- Cardio-respiratory assessment through modified stress-testing
All components of KickStart provide a solid foundation on which to build your new health and fitness routine. You can schedule a blood draw at the fitness center for a lipids panel to indicate current cholesterol, glucose, and triglycerides levels.
You’ll also receive an exercise prescription, fitness orientation, and follow-up sessions to ensure success. Quarterly, free mini-assessments are provided for members as well as a free, six-month reassessment.
Members will soon be able to track their own progress and maintain personal health, maintain personal fitness statistics, and access a vast health and fitness library online through Fitness Connection supported by Interactive Health Partners.
