Understanding your wellness assessment

Wellness assessments are a great way to determine your fitness level, track progress, and plan your next steps. Let us help you get started and experience success in your fitness journey.  

The 60-minute assessments detail helpful information about body composition using the InBody analysis system, cardiovascular health, muscular endurance, balance and flexibility. Regularly scheduled wellness assessments provide insight into changes in your health and fitness to best help set and assess personal goals. You can take home the results of your wellness assessment the same day, and a copy of assessment results will be kept in a secure file at the Lenexa Rec Center for three years.
