In a Fitness Assessment, the five components of physical fitness – body composition, cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance, muscular strength, and flexibility – will be assessed and results will be categorized based on age and gender. Fitness assessments assess baseline levels of fitness and identify strengths and weaknesses, allowing you or your trainer to make a better program tailored for you or to track your progress.
In a Fitness Consultation, a personal trainer will provide an individual exercise prescription based on the results of the Fitness Assessment to meet the goals of the client. It will provide a well-rounded plan that will include cardio, strength, and flexibility exercises to help you get jump started to a healthy balanced lifestyle.
Pick up a Fitness Assessment & Consultation form at the WCU Campus Recreation Center Welcome Desk or download it here Fitness Assessment & Consultation Packet[PDF]. At this time, if the client does not request a Personal Trainer on the questionnaire sheet and the client has no preference, a Personal Trainer will be assigned based on availability.
A Personal Trainer will then contact you to set up your first appointment within 72 hours of submitting your form (as long as medical clearance is not needed). It's that easy!
Payment must be made upon submission of registration materials. Methods of payment include cash or check only. Please make checks payable to West Chester University. Paying a personal trainer directly is prohibited and will result in having all membership privileges terminated immediately.
Please arrive for your appointment on time. Patrons that arrive 15 or more minutes late for an appointment will forfeit the appointment and not receive a refund.
If you must cancel a Fitness Assessment appointment, please contact the Personal Trainer at least 24 hours in advance of the scheduled appointment. You will be charged for appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice.
