Fitness Assessment

A fitness assessment measures your starting level of fitness ability BEFORE you start an exercise program and establishes a baseline to measure future improvement.

The tests done during an assessment help evaluate the participant’s overall fitness level including strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular endurance. The assessment consists of:

  • Body Fat and BMI Analysis
  • Resting and Target Heart Rates
  • Flexibility and Mobility
  • Upper and Lower Body Strength
  • Cardiovascular Fitness

All tests will be completed by a Hamilton Area YMCA Certified Personal Trainer. You will receive a detailed report of your results and a free 6-month follow-up evaluation is included. 

Fitness assessments are complimentary for Facility members. Scheduling is available at the Member Service Desk.

For more information, please contact Jill Makkay at jmakkay@hamiltonymca.org.
