Students’ Fitness Assessments Carry Shared Benefits

Pennsylvania College of Technology’s Exercise Science Club has developed a unique fundraiser that allows students to gain further hands-on experience while providing employees of Penn College and other local schools with information they can use to achieve their fitness goals.

The proceeds will help club members to pay for the National Strength Conditioning Association Personal Trainer certification exam.

Among assessments available is a resting metabolic rate measurement using the exercise science program’s CardioCoach equipment.

The students, all planning to graduate with associate degrees in exercise science this May, have assembled a group of assessments:

Those interested in all four assessments can purchase the package for $50.

“These four tests give you the basic knowledge to achieve a healthier lifestyle by knowing your nutritional values (calories in), your baseline metabolic rate (calories out), body composition and cardio intensity,” said Daniel S. Fertig, Exercise Science Club president. “This information helps you form the best plan to make yourself a better YOU.”

Fertig is an exercise science student from Turbotville.

Employees registered for the BeHIP workplace wellness initiative earn 10 points for each assessment or 50 points total if they complete all four.

To schedule an assessment, contact John Arrigonie, exercise science lab supervisor, by email, or by calling 570-320-2400, ext. 7401.
