Fitness Assessments

A fitness assessment is a great way for you to determine your current level of fitness. These measurements can be an invaluable tool when developing a fitness plan or when looking at the impact your fitness level has on your quality of life now and into the future. The assessments measure resting heart rate, blood pressure, height and weight, flexibility, muscular strength and endurance, body composition, measurements, and aerobic capacity.

Cost is $25 for students, members, or non-members.

Body Composition Test

Our trainers can perform a body fat composition test with skin calipers. The results are then calculated and the percentage of body fat is determined. Body girth measurements will also be performed, which includes waist, hip, chest, arm, and thigh circumference.

Cost is $3 for students, members, or non-members.


What is Massage Therapy?

According to the American Massage Therapy Association, massage is a hands-on manipulation of soft tissue and joints of the body and may include muscle, tendons and ligaments. Techniques may involve holding, causing movement, and/or applying pressure to the body. Western has a professional massage therapist on staff.

How is it Beneficial?

Massage therapy can provide a wealth of benefits. Research shows that massage can:

  • Reduce heart-rate
  • Help lower blood pressure
  • Improve blood circulation, recovery time and immune system function
  • Relax muscles
  • Improve range of motion
  • Increase endorphins
  • Help manage stress


Massage may be contraindicated for specific health conditions; therefore it is important that your therapist be aware of your health history and screen appropriately before performing massage. In some instances, permission from your physician may be required before services can be provided.
