Fitness Testing for ESC Participants

Students and faculty from the Penn State Center for Fitness and Wellness will be in the Courtyard Lounge, on the main level of the conference center, near the conference registration desk, on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday mornings from 6:30 to 8:30 a.m. to conduct fitness testing for interested ESC attendees.

This engaged scholarship offering is a great opportunity to take advantage of services, including screening for cardiovascular disease risk, resting blood pressure, resting heart rate, height and weight, body mass index, percent body fat, grip strength, trunk flexibility, aerobic fitness as measured with a bicycle or aerobic step test, and muscle endurance testing. In addition, cholesterol and glucose tests will be available to the first 50 participants!

Results will be reviewed with you, and suggestions given on ways to improve your values and to safely increase your physical activity levels.
