Learn the proper way to use the exercise equipment at the Student Recreation and Wellness Center (SRWC) from one of our wellness staff members. This orientation provides participants with a basic overview of equipment, while stressing proper technique. Smart Start Orientations are available by appointment.

A SRWC staff member uses a skin-fold caliper to measure adipose tissue (fat tissue between the skin and muscle) from predetermined anatomical sites. Your body composition is calculated based on these measurements. Body Composition may also be measured using the Tanita Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis scale. Body composition refers to relative percentages of body weight; usually expressed as percent of body fat and percent of lean body mass.

The SRWC utilizes the state-of-the-art FitMate Pro fitness assessment system to assess Basal Metabolic Rate (BMR). BMR is the number of calories required to keep your body functioning at rest. BMR is also known as your body's metabolism. Resting measurements also includes resting heart rate and blood pressure.

The SRWC utilizes the state-of-the-art FitMate Pro fitness assessment system. The FitMate Pro system allows the SRWC staff to perform multiple assessments including: submaximal walk/run test (predicted VO2 Max) and BMR (basal metabolic rate). In addition, the staff can assess your body composition, blood pressure, muscular strength, muscular endurance, and flexibility. Once your results are calculated, you will receive a detailed educational report. A SRWC staff member will meet with you to discuss the report.

Fitness Assessment requires a Fitness Assessment Packet to be turned into the SRWC front desk before appointment can be made.

A consultation is available for any individual who may be unsure of what he/she needs regarding exercise, fitness, nutrition, and behavior changes. This consultation aids in goal setting and developing a fundamental understanding of general fitness, wellness, nutrition, and health concepts. This session may also be used as a follow-up to an exercise prescription or to update and make changes to a current exercise program.

Nutrition Consultation requires a 3-5day food log or MyFitness Pal log before appointment.

The movement screen includes a structural and movement-based assessments based on the ACE IFT model to a evaluate balance, joint stability, joint mobility, rang of motion, skeletal structure, pain indicators and flexibility.

An SRWC staff member can develop a customized exercise program based on your goals, interests, fitness knowledge, past workouts, likes/dislikes of working out, and your schedule.

Exercise Program Design requires a pre and post meeting (Movement screen Assessment and Program Design/Implementation).
