Fall Fit Fair

Think you know how fit you are? If you are new to working out or you've been coming to the Recreation Center for years come to the Fall Fit Fair to find out exactly where you stack up against the nation's norms. At this event you'll have the opportunity to move through seven stations that will provide you with important information about your own fitness level.

By moving through the stations you will learn more about what your resting blood pressure and heart rate are, body fat percentage, body mass index (BMI), waist-to-hip ratio, broad jump distance, cardiovascular endurance, upper body muscular endurance, and hamstring/low back flexibility. Our certified personal trainers will lead you through these various activities and at the end they'll break it down for you and let you know what your results mean and how you can improve.

This is a free event so make sure to take advantage! Reward yourself following the assessment by receiving a FREE chair massage!
