Healthy Steps Intake Initiative
The Healthy Intake Initiative is a cooperative effort between Campus Recreation and the Institute of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness utilizing programming experience, academic expertise and resources available on campus. Our mission is to guide you toward a healthier lifestyle and help you to participate in a safe, highly effective and enjoyable exercise experience.
We take the following steps in review of your health/fitness screening and conduct an intake process so we can best assist in guiding you towards the most appropriate exercise opportunities at Adelphi for you!
- We review your registration application, pre-participation screening form and your physician’s clearance form.
- Based on the information you provided on the forms, we may make the determination that you should be directed to consult with the Director of the Adult Fitness Program at Adelphi to learn about that program prior to making a commitment to the CRS membership program. You may be encouraged to join the Adult Fitness Program and/or have some form of periodic exercise monitoring prior to engaging in a less supervised activity in our open membership program. Consideration is given to age, health status & previous exercise experience in making the determination to refer members to AFP (the Adelphi Adult Fitness Program).
AFP information: In this program, you have the opportunity to participate in a fitness assessment to determine your level of health-related fitness and baseline for your exercise program with the Institute of Sports Medicine and Physical Fitness Program. This assessment includes a sub-maximal exercise test on a bike or treadmill, body composition analysis and test for muscular fitness and flexibility. From this information, you will receive a Personal Exercise Prescription based on your assessment, designed to help you meet your goals. The Fitness Assessment also includes periodic follow-up and reassessment for up to 1 year. If you have any questions about the Adelphi AFP (Adult Fitness Program), please contact John Wygand, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 877-4275.
We hope you take advantage of all that Adelphi has to offer in order to reach your fitness goals!
