Fitness Assessments

Because physical fitness has such a strong relationship with good health, ARUP provides the ability for every one of its employees to receive a full fitness assessment from the wellness staff in the Wellness Center. In the fitness assessment a member of the wellness staff will measure your current fitness level by conducting the following tests:

  • Blood Pressure
  • Weight
  • Waist to Hip Ratio
  • Body Fat Percentage
  • Cardiovascular Fitness
  • Muscular Fitness
  • Flexibility

Important Information for the assessment:

You should refrain from ingesting food, alcohol, caffeine, or from using tobacco products within three hours of testing. You should be rested and avoid significant exertion or exercise on the day of the assessment. Your clothing should permit freedom of movement and include walking or running shoes. You should also wear shorts or some kind of pants that allow you to pull the pant leg up past mid-thigh, as that is one of the areas that is measured with the calipers for body fat percentage. Drink ample fluids over the 24-hour period preceding the test to ensure normal hydration before testing. Plan on 30 to 45 minutes if you want to go through the full assessment.

These numbers can be very helpful as you begin a new fitness program, because it will educate you about your current fitness status and will allow you to keep track of your progress as you move along.

In order to make an appointment for a fitness assessment call us at extension 2824 or email us at wellness@aruplab.com.
