wellness 101 

To better serve you, the Akron Area YMCA and Summa Sports Medicine are working together to provide a comprehensive level of expertise and wellness to members with Licensed Athletic Trainers [AT]. This program was developed by Summa Health's Licensed Athletic Trainers and can be conducted by a fitness/wellness coach. 

This free program is designed with you in mind. Its goal is to help you become and stay healthy and active.

This program starts with an assessment to determine your readiness for exercise. 

The Wellness Assessment includes:

  • Consent to Exercise
  • Lifestyle Goals Questionnaire
  • Physical Activity Readiness Questionnaire
  • Fitness Assessment
  •          Blood Pressure
  •          Body Fat%/Body Mass Index
  •          Weight & Height

The initial goal is for you to meet with your wellness coach for a fitness assessment and a personalized workout plan, which will include proper set-up and instruction on the workout equipment.
