The PFE serves two basic purposes: It allows our Health/Fitness Specialists to objectively evaluate your present level of physical fitness, which is helpful in assessing your needs, setting goals, and developing your Personal Workout Plan. It also helps you to monitor your progress and make any necessary modifications to achieve your fitness goals.
The PFE evaluates the five major components of physical fitness, including:
- CARDIORESPIRATORY ENDURANCE
- MUSCULAR STRENGTH
- MUSCULAR ENDURANCE
- FUNCTIONAL MOVEMENT SCREENING (FMS)
- BODY COMPOSITION (Your body composition will be measured in our BOD POD® where you'll sit comfortably while computerized pressure sensors determine the amount of air displaced by your body.) All members receive one free BOD POD® per calendar year.
Guests to NIFS may schedule a Personal Fitness Evaluation by calling (317) 274-3432 ext. 260. The cost for non-members is $80.
The BOD POD® is the gold standard in body composition tracking and NIFS has it. This device accurately measures the percentage of body fat and lean body mass, enabling you to track your body composition more effectively over time.
