Equipment Fittings/ Orientations

Walking through a fitness facility can be intimidating, but we are hear to help!  Wellness staff will provide a guided tour of the Wellness Center, describe the function of each different type of machine, demonstrate proper use of cardio and strength equipment.  During the equipment fitting session, you will learn how to determine the correct settings and adjust the machines to fit your body so you are safe and create a balanced workout.  Wellness staff will discuss choosing appropriate weights, sets, and reps and progressions as your body gets stronger.  This opportunity is FREE for members and can be repeated as many times as you would like.  Equipment fittings is great for individuals new to exercise, returning to exercise, or experienced exerciser looking to double check form and alignment.

Equipment Fittings are offered in small groups and last about 45-60 minutes.  Please dress in comfortable workout attire.
