Fitness assessments at Lake Forest Health & Fitness Center are administered by one of our certified fitness specialists. They use the technologically advanced MicroFit® program to provide you accurate information about your current fitness levels, body composition, cardiovascular health, strength, flexibility, blood chemistry and other baseline measurements. The results of your assessment are essential for developing your personalized fitness program. Track your progress through regular assessments and documentation of your achievements.
The initial fitness assessment is an hour-long test that provides you with baseline statistics tailored to plan the perfect training regimen. Your assessment will test your resting heart rate and blood pressure, body composition, muscular strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness. With our MicroFit® software, you can expect accurate results to develop the perfect routine for your fitness goals! The equipment orientation is an hour-long appointment that will get you acclimated with our full line of fitness equipment. One of our fitness specialists will be with you step by step to answer any questions and help you get the most out of your membership.
Free annual assessments are available for all Lake Forest Health & Fitness Center members who have completed an initial Fitness Assessment upon joining the club. They must be completed one year from when they were initially done and can be scheduled with the Fitness Coordinator. Annual Assessments include everything that was completed during the initial Fitness Assessment. If you are not sure if you are due for your annual assessment, visit the Member Service desk.
Unlike body weight, which only reports a number on the scale, your body composition takes into account where your weight comes from. Knowing what percentage is fat versus muscle tissue offers more insight into your health and how to improve it long-term. The medical Body Composition Analyzer (mBCA) by seca is our newest fitness assessment tool at Lake Forest Health & Fitness Center. Administered by one of our certified fitness specialists, the test breaks down your weight into body compartments—namely Fat Mass and Fat-free Mass, Body Water and Skeletal Muscle Mass. These measurements are processed by six analytical modules and presented in easy-to-understand graphics. After a body composition analysis and consultation, you’ll know how to personalize your fitness routine to lessen body fat, increase lean muscle tissue and boost your metabolism.
Athletic Fitness Assessment: Measures your height and weight, seven-site body composition, three rep max bench press, flexibility, cardiovascular endurance and estimate VO2 max.
Bone Density: Ultrasound bone sonometry is a safe, radiation-free modality that provides precise quantitative assessment of skeletal status, useful in identifying patients at risk of developing osteoporosis and assessing their risk of future fracture. In less than a minute, you can estimate a patient’s bone density, based on an ultrasound measurement of the calcaneus (heel bone).
