Adult Wellness Programs

Whether you are just getting started or ready to take your fitness to a new level, we have a program designed specifically for you. Small group training programs and specialty fitness classes offer every member the support and guidance needed to achieve their goals. 




Gauge Your Fitness

Looking to test your fitness?  We have a couple of different ways for you to track your progress and can be used to help you determine your goals.

  • Fitness Assessment.  This physical fitness testing is used extensively to predict chronic disease risk, quantify fitness levels, and assess performance.  It can be used to identify areas of focus for your workout and keep track of your fitness.  Includes: resting vital signs, STYKU scan, and a cardiovascular, muscular, and flexibility test.  Cost $45 (Members only). 
  • STYKU Scan.  This body composition analysis measures body surface area, determining circumference measurements to predict body fat percentages, muscle to fat ratios, and more.  The software can provide personalized plans for weight reduction and chronic disease prevention.  Pre and post-tests can be compared to show measurable changes in body composition that a scale is unable to show.  Cost $25 (Members only).
