Fitness Testing Services

Medical Fitness Profile (Allow 30 minutes)

After reviewing your health history, one of our certified medical assistants will measure your height, weight, resting heart rate, and blood pressure.  You may also take advantage of the cholesterol and blood glucose screening at no additional cost.  This will require a small sample of blood (finger stick) and we recommend at least a 3-hour fast.     This is a non-diagnostic screening.  Members with abnormal results will be asked to follow-up with their primary physician. 

Fitness Profile and Program Design (Allow 1.5 hrs)

Two appointments in one to get you started on the right path for YOU!  During this appointment, an Exercise Physiologist will take you through several fitness assessments to determine your “starting point”. 
Your Fitness Profile may include all or some of the following components:

  • Resting heart rate and blood pressure
  • Sub maximal treadmill or bike test to measure cardiovascular endurance
  • Muscular strength and endurance
  • Flexibility
  • Body composition

Upon completion of your Fitness Profile the Exercise Physiologist will design an exercise program, accommodating for your health and fitness needs.  You will be shown proper use of the cardiovascular and strength equipment appropriate for you at this time.  Our goal is always to give you a safe, effective, and personalized program while answering all your questions.

Periodic Updates

You will receive a postcard reminder in the mail when it's time to check your progress. We recommend a Fitness Profile and Program Update every 2 months. These periodic updates help keep you focused on the long-term goal while warding off boredom and exercise plateaus.

Metabolic Assessments... Train Smarter, not Harder!

The Lifestyle Center's New Leaf Metabolic System can help you achieve superior results with an individualized plan based on your specific metabolism.

Measuring your Resting Metabolic Rate (RMR) is a simple 15-minute assessment.  Your only responsibility is to breathe normally while resting in a reclined position.  The New Leaf system provides the highest level of accuracy to determine your daily caloric expenditure. The information gained from the RMR is truly the foundation for a complete weight management program.

Exercise metabolic testing, once only available to professional athletes provides the exercise physiologist with very specific information about how efficient your body is burning calories for energy.  You will receive a 12-week cardiovascular training schedule based on your most efficient heart rate zones.

Various packages ranging from $99 to $259 are now available.  Please call the Exercise Physiology Department for pricing information at (559) 624-3450.

Hydrostatic Weighing

The Lifestyle Center is the only local facility to offer the most accurate method to determine body composition and lean body mass!

A standard scale measures pounds but does not give an accurate measurement of body composition. Lean tissue such as bone and muscle are more dense than water while fat tissue is less dense and therefore more buoyant. Hydrostatic weighing, also called underwater weighing, can be used to measure percentage of fat versus lean tissue in your body.

At the end of the assessment you will be given a report detailing your lean mass and fat mass.  The process from start to finish takes about 20 to 30 minutes.

Hydrostatic Weighting is offered the first Saturday of each month.
