ASSESSMENTS

Whether you are starting an exercise program or trying to get better results from your current workout, the JCC Fitness Testing service can improve your experience and help you track changes that cannot be measured on a scale. The fitness testing baseline evaluation measures body fat and dimensions, strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular fitness. Follow-up testing is available so that you can track your progress.

InBody Body Composition - The InBody 570 measures lean mass and fat values in each segment of the body to provide the proper assessment of body composition.
