Georgia Gwinnett College class seeks volunteers for free physical assessments

Summertime is almost here, and with it comes a renewed interest in health and wellness. Georgia Gwinnett College’s (GGC) School of Science and Technology is offering a chance for several individuals to work on their personal fitness.

The exercise science program at GGC seeks volunteers to participate in a six-week exercise program. The purpose of the program is to help exercise science students sharpen hands-on skills while gaining experience in a practical fitness setting. Volunteers will undergo a pre-training and post-training fitness assessment, which will include:

•    Blood pressure
•    Body composition
•    Cardiovascular fitness
•    Muscular strength
•    Balance 
•    Flexibility

Following the pre-training assessment, participants will begin a six-week personalized fitness training program for one hour each Monday and Wednesday between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m., from June 6 through July 18. To participate, volunteers must be healthy adults with no major health conditions.

For more information and to volunteer, contact Dr. Lauren Tapp, associate professor of exercise science, at ltapp@ggc.edu.
