UNH Community Testing Program
Want to Improve Your Fitness Routine?
Not sure how to begin? The UNH Exercise program now offers Community Testing services on campus! Fitness testing allows individuals to become aware of their current fitness levels and help them to develop and establish a fitness program. They can also serve as an indication of possible areas of health risk or injury.
Research demonstrates that the implementation of a community health testing program can have significantly reduced the risk of developing heart disease and other chronic conditions. A comprehensive physical fitness testing should evaluate aerobic capacity, strength, endurance, body composition and flexibility.
All assessments here at UNH are conducted through the Exercise program are administered by the faculty and graduate students in the Robert Kertzer Exercise Physiology Laboratory. Some of the services include, blood lipid analysis, body composition analysis, submaximal and maximal graded exercise tests, and anaerobic threshold (lactic acid) testing.
All of the services provided require a small fee. Here is a complete list of services and fees provided by the kinesiology department.
