Prospective Wellness Center members begin with a self-assessment of medical and health risk factors using the Health Risk Assessment with wellness staff, obtaining physician approval as needed. A complete needs assessment assists wellness staff in defining goals and objectives.
Complete Program Development
Members and wellness staff work together to determine the best approach for reaching goals. This includes planning out the details, such as how to safely use the equipment. Staff also teaches members to monitor how much exercise is enough, provides a training heart rate and teaches proper posture and body mechanics for all the exercises in individual's programs.
Whether a member is looking for a program to manage weight, control high blood pressure, high cholesterol or diabetes, trained professionals will help get him or her on the right track. This could also mean developing an off-season program for athletes. Program development is included free as part of membership.
