Fitness Assessment
The Pre-Comprehensive Assessment will help to determine your current level of fitness. A series of resting and exercising measurements will be performed to help establish your fitness baseline in order to set goals. The Post Assessment will assess the progress you’ve made throughout the program. 

Wellness Coaching
The goal of Wellness Coaching is to identify and create the conditions in the participant’s life that will lead them to a life of thriving and optimal performance. Wellness coaching enhances your physical and mental well-being through empowering conversations which help to identify and utilize your personal strengths to achieve your goals. Meeting with your coach every other week, you will review progress toward your goals, explore and resolve pressing obstacles, and then establish a new set of short term goals for the following weeks.

Participant Feedback:
“So many times as students we are constantly one the go and don't have time for ourselves. When grades start to drop, stress level is beyond belief, and you find yourself in a bad place, you need an outlet to regroup and find yourself again. This program is just that. Finding your true self while, relieving stress, nourishing your body with healthy foods, having time for yourself, and setting weekly, and mostly goals.”
