Fitness Assessments

Fitness Assessment

Fitness assessments are valuable tools to use in order to track and evaluate the following physical components:

  • Uncover imbalances in your overall physical fitness and discuss ways to address those imbalances
  • Track changes over time and monitor your progress towards achieving your individual goals

Body Composition

Body composition analysis breaks down the percentage of body weight by estimating both fat mass & fat-free mass. The Bod Pod uses measurements of body volume and mass to precisely calculate amounts of fat and fat-free mass. The Bod Pod assessment will allow you to:

  • Accurately measure body fat percentage — a key metric of overall health and fitness
  • Track changes in fat mass and fat-free mass over time
  • Calculate resting metabolic rate as well as total calories burned per day at different levels of physical activity

Students: $22 | Faculty/Staff: $24

Contact Fitness GA Rochelle Koehnen at for more information or to schedule a fitness assessment or Bod Pod.
