Assessing Functional Fitness
At Fite Fitness we utilize the Senior Functional Fitness Assessment Protocol to provide baseline information regarding the current functional capacity of an individual. The goal of performing functional fitness assessments is to extend independent, active life expectances and reduce disabilities. Based on the results of the assessments, individuals receive specific health & fitness recommendations, including specific exercises they should perform & lifestyle modifications they should make, to best improve overall functional capacity.
