Fitness Assessments

Comprehensive Fitness Assessments (Individual Testing)

Receive a comprehensive measurement of your overall health with an individual fitness assessment. Fitness assessments are conducted by a certified personal trainer and take approximately one hour to complete. Your assessment will include any or all of the following measurements:

  • body composition measurement (lean body mass vs. fat mass)
  • scale weight and BMI (body mass index)
  • blood pressure reading
  • circumference measurements
  • cardiovascular fitness test (submaximal)
  • upper body muscular strength and/or endurance tests
  • abdominal muscular strength and/or endurance tests
  • lower body muscular strength tests

At the end of the session, you and your trainer will discuss the results of your tests and future directions for maintenance and improvement. Assessments are $25. To sign up for an assessment, drop by the Recreation Center Office during business hours, or contact Jen Macko, assistant director for fitness, at 410-516-4413 or

Free Fitness Assessments (Mass Fitness Testing)

The Recreation Center Office encourages students to “Know your numbers!” Find your resting heart rate, blood pressure, body fat percentage, BMI, and circumference measurements.

Twice in the fall and twice in the spring, the personal training team conducts mass fitness testing free of charge. Dates for the free fitness tests will be posted via Today’s Announcements, the Recreation Center Facebook page, and on flyers throughout the facility.
