⇒ Weight Management — Metabolic testing is available to assess your daily caloric needs. The test measures your resting metabolic rate which helps you set realistic goals for weight loss, weight gain, fat loss or maintenance. A biometric measurement of your body fat, blood pressure, waist circumference, weight, and resting heart rate is also included.
⇒ Fitness Assessment — State-of-the-art-equipment is used to assess your cardio-respiratory fitness (VO2), muscular strength (grip and back), and flexibility. After testing, clients will receive a comprehensive report that shows their current fitness levels as well as an individualized exercise prescription to help them reach your goals. A biometric measurement of your body fat, blood pressure, waist circumference, weight, and resting heart rate is also included.
⇒ Wellness Coaching — These sessions (available weekly, bi-weekly/monthly) are designed to keep you accountable, motivated, and on target to reach your goals. Biometric measurements (e.g. body fat, weight, heart rate, etc.) are optional during coaching. Remember it’s not about losing weight or becoming fitter, it’s about a lifestyle change.
⇒ Biofeedback (Coming Soon!) — Stress can affect our everyday lives. Whether it stems from a recent or upcoming deployment, training, work, school, or life’s hurdles; we can help you develop a plan to relieve stress and improve their well-being. Using biofeedback, we teach breathing and relaxation techniques to improve a client's ability to relax and control their emotional state and improve overall focus. This is not a replacement for therapy, but a tool to help you manage your own emotions and physiology.
Also, we have two state-of-the-art massage chairs available during hours of operation to all members of the community.
