Fitness assessments are used to determine a person’s overall level of fitness and starts a foundation for people to set fitness goals.
We will be providing free assessments to measure muscle strength, weight, and body composition. Once completed, fitness program recommendations will be offered including benchmarks for recording improvements in a person’s level of physical fitness.
Not all pounds are created equally.
When was the last time you stepped on a scale? Did you gain 2 pounds – was this muscle mass, water weight or body fat? Physical body weight can be broken down into two parts: lean body mass and fat mass. A skin fold assessment is an easy valid way to measure body fat percentage.
How strong is your handshake?
A hand grip dynamometer tests the strength of the hand and arm. Though it has been suggested that the hand dynamometer test can’t be a valid measure of total body strength. A hand dynamometer does is give a reliable and simple measurement which can be used as a predictor of future health concerns.
How much do I weigh?
When and how often you should jump on a scale is a challenging question – one size does not fit all. Stepping on the scale can be daunting, making a person feel obsessed about the number on the scale. However, stepping on a scale weekly, can keep us in check with our weight progress or maintenance.
Fitness assessments are FREE to current UB Students.
Assessments will be available at 175 Alumni Arena during the Fall 2021 Semester:
