Sullivan Center offers fitness assessments this fall
The Clemson University Joseph F. Sullivan Center is now offering fitness assessments for Clemson faculty and staff enrolled in the CU Well program. Sullivan Center staff can evaluate members’ current fitness level and provide personalized assessments with the completion of a CU4Health profile.
The fitness assessments are free for those enrolled in CU Well; for those not enrolled, the cost is $20. The assessments are performed by students and faculty in Clemson’s parks, recreation and tourism management department. The assessments measure height, weight, body composition, blood pressure, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance and flexibility.
The Sullivan Center also provides a one-on-one counseling session following the assessment. This session allows a Sullivan Center staff member to review results and establish a fitness plan for the participant that caters to their lifestyle and goals.
CU Well is a comprehensive wellness program for Clemson University employees, faculty and staff. It is comprised of the CU4Health health risk appraisal, which includes access to an online portal, blood work, BMI, blood pressure screening and an individual follow-up appointment with a health educator. Members of CU Well can participate in CU4Health annually and have access to programs such as diabetes self-management courses, nutrition counseling and a smoking cessation program in addition to the fitness assessment. The Sullivan Center offers these programs free or at a reduced cost for CU Well participants.
Located on the first floor of Edwards Hall, the Joseph F. Sullivan Center is a nurse-managed health center that integrates classroom education with clinical service learning opportunities to provide health services to Clemson employees. The center is part of the Clemson University College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences.
