Complimentary Fitness Services
Duke Center for Living at Fearrington offers our members a number of specialized, complimentary services designed to enhance your fitness experience. These services provide you with the resources and information essential to a successful exercise program.
Each one-on-one appointment is conducted by an Exercise Physiologist and incorporates your own goals, interests and needs. We encourage each member to take advantage of these services.
Fitness Assessment – New Member
This initial Fitness Assessment includes a series of fitness tests that help determine your current fitness level and provides a baseline with which to chart your progress. The assessment covers all the components of fitness, including: body composition, cardiopulmonary fitness, muscular strength, and flexibility. The results are used by the Exercise Physiologist to develop a customized plan for your Exercise Orientation.
Exercise Orientation – New Member
Exercise Orientation usually follows the Fitness Assessment and will provide you with a general introduction to the equipment in our center and identify those best suited for your personalized exercise regimen. You will receive hands-on demonstrations of how to properly and safely operate the equipment and how best to achieve your personal fitness goals. The orientation will include strength training, cardiovascular exercise and flexibility.
Re-Assessment – Established Member
The Re-Assessment should occur every 5-6 months as a follow-up to your original Fitness Assessment. By repeating the same tests from your previous assessment, this appointment will help you track your progress towards your goals. It is also a time to identify new goals and discuss adjustments to your current program.
Program Evaluation – Established Member
During the Program Evaluation, the Exercise Physiologist will help you re-assess your personal fitness program, review and adjust current exercises, incorporate new goals and discuss suggestions that will enhance your progress. It is recommended that you schedule a Program Evaluation every 3 to 4 months.
