What is The Zone?

The Zone is a concept developed to address the wellness needs of our campus community. Transcending a physical space, The Zone is a state of mind, a way of living, and an opportunity for members to holistically explore and discover themselves in mind, body and spirit.

Fitness Testing & Mapping

We use the high-tech MacroFit system that can test resting heart rate, blood pressure, weight, height, BMI, body fat percentage, max oxygen output under cardiovascular pressure (VO2), bicep strength, flexibility and more. The test is administered with a trained fitness assessment technician who will give each client a print out of their results as well as discuss options on how to improve categories to achieve optimal wellness. Scores can be reassessed and updated with each test to track progress over time.
