This Assessment focuses on understanding your current state of health and how your eating, exercise, and lifestyle habits may be affecting your overall health, weight, fitness, and aging. Your body has specific needs at this stage of life, and our goal is to help you meet those needs for optimal health and wellness. Furthermore, enjoying life after fifty requires a level of functional fitness, which includes strength, cardiovascular endurance, balance, flexibility, and a healthy body composition. This assessment will ask you about your health history, eating and lifestyle habits. It also asks you to perform 6 simple fitness assessments that highlight which areas of fitness need your attention, and that you can use as a baseline to track your progress. If you cannot complete any of the fitness tests, it is ok to indicate “incomplete”.
Please note that your information is highly confidential and would only be shared with CONEC-TIONS 50+ Essentials-Toolkit team.
Mweia Elias, the designer of this assessment will be responsible for analyzing your results and preparing your report.
