Comprehensive Fitness Assessments
Prior to starting an exercise program, a Comprehensive Fitness Appraisal (MicroFit® Complete Fitness & Wellness Profile and Functional Movement Screen) will be conducted to provide a baseline of current fitness level. Assessments may include tests to determine resting heart rate, blood pressure, body composition, aerobic capacity, muscular strength, muscular endurance, static and dynamic posture, power, and flexibility.
Body Composition Testing
Skinfold Body Composition (7 SITE)
The purpose of this assessment is to determine the percentage of body fat. This measurement is taken via a 7-site skinfold (that is gender specific) in order to measure the subcutaneous fat (below the skin) in the body. Multiple sites are analyzed given the variability in fat distribution from site-to-site and person-to-person.
Bioelectrical Impedance (BIA)
BIA is a method of determining body composition by passing a small electrical current through the body and measuring the impedance or resistance to the current flow. A BIA (Tanita) scale is used to estimate your Weight, Body Fat Percentage, Body Mass Index, Fat Mass, Fat Free Mass, Basal Metabolic Rate, Total Body Water, and Hydration Level.
Functional Movement Screen (FMS)
The Functional Movement Screen is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns which are essential to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. The FMS generates the Functional Movement Screen Score, which is used to target problems and track progress and helps trainers develop a fitness routine that includes the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.
Fitness Orientations provide a more inclusive environment by showing users how to operate basic fitness equipment found throughout the Carmichael Complex. Each orientation will be led by a trained Strength & Conditioning Assistant and is aimed to better orient our users with machines in a proper and safe manner. The orientation will also go over basic fitness information and answer any general questions you may have in regards to leading a healthy, active lifestyle.
This service is completely free to NC State students and Carmichael Complex Members and will take approximately 45-minutes. Once you have registered, one of our staff members will contact you to schedule the orientation session.
