The Annandale Fitness Center offers an initial fitness assessment designed to evaluate your current level of fitness. The components which are evaluated include: Cardiorespiratory Fitness, Muscular Strength and Endurance, Mobility, and Body Composition. This evaluation takes approximately an hour and may be used by students, faculty and staff at NO CHARGE!

Cardiorespiratory Fitness: Assesses predicted maximal oxygen consumption and is used to determine your cardiovascular endurance level. The higher this number, the more fit you are!

Muscular Strength and Endurance: Determines your maximum strength in the upper and lower body using a 1 rep max test. Muscular endurance assess’ how well you are able to sustain a certain exercise. A timed sit up and push up test will be used to evaluate endurance of the core, chest, and tricep muscles.

Mobility: Assesses range of motion in the lower and upper extremities of the body including ankle, knee, hip, and shoulders. This will be assessed by performing a deep squat and shoulder mobility test.

Body Composition: Ratio of lean tissue to fat tissue mass using a Bioelectrical Impedance measuring device.
