Health & Fitness Testing & Programs

Our health and fitness programs, which include personal training, can help you improve your stamina and teach you how to maximize your fitness potential.

We offer weight-loss tests and programs that complement the services offered at NYU Langone’s Weight Management Program.

Experts at our Sports Performance Center also offer sports performance testing, training, and special programs for runners and golfers.

Health and Fitness Evaluation

The health and fitness evaluation is designed for people of all ages and fitness levels who wish to obtain a baseline understanding of their current health and fitness status, with the goal of preventing disease and improving health, fitness, and quality of life. The evaluation includes the following:

  • heart rate and blood pressure measurements
  • body fat analysis
  • aerobic capacity test measuring oxygen consumption (VO2max or submax test is given based on the person’s health)
  • assessment of strength and flexibility using FMS™

Based on information gathered during the evaluation, our specialists provide exercise prescriptions to improve health and fitness concerns identified during evaluation. This test may be recommended as part of your treatment plan through NYU Langone’s Weight Management Program.
