STEP ONE
What is a FITT KIT?

Knowing where to begin your fitness journey can be overwhelming. The FITT Kit Offers a solution to provide you clearer direction and confidence as you work towards your fitness goals. This sixty-minute session will provide greater insight on your current fitness, as well as offer recommendations for improving your fitness based off of your goals and a comprehensive wellness assessment. The wellness assessment will be customized to measure health and fitness markers specific to you.

What is the cost?
  • Current Members: One FREE FITT Kit annually
  • Non-members: $45
How do you sign up?

Sign-up at our front desk or at one of our FITT Kit boxes around our facility. If using the FITT Kit box, place the slip in the box, and a trainer will contact you within seven calendar days to schedule your session.

STEP TWO

All FITT Kit participants must print off (or pick up at our front desk) the personal training packet which includes documents such as the Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire (PAR-Q), Exercise History, and Physician’s Release. The packet should be completed before your appointment.

Will you need a physician’s approval prior to participating in the FITT Kit?

Any person’s requiring a physician’s approval, will need to provide the appropriate documentation before participating in assessments or prescribed exercise.

STEP THREE
  • Drink plenty of fluids during the 24-hour period before your testing.
  • Refrain from eating, smoking and drinking alcohol or caffeine for 3 hours prior to testing.
  • Do not engage in strenuous activity the day of our session.
  • Get adequate sleep (6-8 hours) the night before we meet.
  • Please come dressed in workout attire (full sleeve t-shirt, pants/shorts and sneakers). If interested in a posture assessment, please wear form-fitting clothes or a tank top and shorts.
