ProHealthNet will conduct fitness tests to help determine one’s level of fitness and risk to disease. These tests are voluntary and all results will be kept completely confidential. The tests include a 6-minute submaximal VO2 test (bike ergometer), blood pressure, waist-to-hip ratio, body composition, strength tests, and flexibility tests. The results from these baseline tests can be used to design an employee-based wellness program that will meet the specific needs of your company.
