About CPR/AED Certification
This class is ideal for anyone who wants to know how to perform CPR if the need arises or for someone who needs a certification as part of a job requirement. The course covers CPR for adults, children and infants as well as Automated External Defibrillator (AED) use. All Franciscan Health Fitness Centers staff members are CPR/AED certified.
Cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) is an emergency procedure that combines chest compressions with artificial breathing in an effort to manually revive an unresponsive person. Ultimately, the goal is to preserve intact brain function until additional measures can be taken to restore spontaneous blood circulation and breathing in a person who is in cardiac arrest.
Automated external defibrillators (AEDs) can be found in many public places, and are available for home use. These machines have pads or paddles to place on the chest during a life-threatening emergency. They use computers to automatically check the heart rhythm and give a sudden shock if, and only if, that shock is needed to get the heart back into the right rhythm.

Nice facility and lots of options to get in shape. Did a tour and didn't sign up. When I went it was $90 registration and then $60 monthly. (minus like $7 for college students) but they said it would go up in November to $99 or $150 a month

Good gym. Can get real packed about 3 times a day but it is not too bad. Nice equipment and the staff is nice and attentive if you need them. The only bad thing is they don’t allow your cell phones and I use to use my to record my swim technique. Other than that the place is great.
