Do You Know Your Numbers?
You cannot manage, what you do not measure, which is why knowing your numbers is so important. The American Heart Association recommends that you know these five numbers:
✔️HDL Cholesterol (the good cholesterol)
✔️Body Mass Index
It is important to know these numbers because they help to determine your risk for developing Cardiovascular Disease. Knowing your numbers also provides you with a road map for improving your health. Franciscan Health Fitness Centers Schererville offers blood screenings for members quarterly on the first Tuesday of that month.
Did you know there are other “numbers” that fitness professionals say we should be aware of to improve our health?
For example, do you know your body fat percentage? This is important because the higher your body fat percentage, the more at risk you are for heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer. Have you ever had a movement screening? During every assessment, our fitness professionals provide a seven-step movement pattern to determine your risk of injury. Knowing this number allows your fitness professional to tailor a fitness program made especially for you!
Did you know that all Franciscan Health Fitness Centers members may sign-up for a FREE FITNESS ASSESSMENT that will evaluate your baseline fitness numbers? The fitness specialist will develop a results-oriented program for each member based on the results of the fitness assessment.
If you are interested in weight loss, increasing strength, losing body fat, increasing endurance, or improving your core strength, you have to know your starting point to be able to measure your end results!
We recommend that you schedule a tour at your local fitness center to learn if they offer the equipment, personal training, friendly kids zone you are looking for. If you are not sure where you would like to tour, come see us! We welcome you to visit our club!
