Unlike many facilities Northeast Health & Fitness will not just simply sell you a membership. Our goal is to provide you with the knowledge and guidance so that you can make real positive changes in your life!
For over 30 years, Northeast Health & Fitness has ensured all members start their fitness journey accurately, safely and with realistic structured goals. All new members meet one on one with our professional Fitness Consultants and based on your assessment results and personal goals a customized fitness “blue-print” is created. This “blue-print” will guarantee your fitness success!

What type of member benefits from our consultation program?
One of the greatest aspects of this program is that it has been designed to benefit everyone from seasoned athletes to deconditioned seniors and everyone in between.
ATHLETES – In this day and age professional, amateur and collegiate athletes typically utilize or follow some type of program and coaching that provides quantitative and professional feedback on a regular basis. The feedback, which is compared and contrasted during given points in time, is critical for ensuring time is not wasted performing ineffective or plateaued routines.
FAITHFUL EXERCISERS – Despite exercising regularly, many individuals see very little in terms of actual progress. The fitness consultation and full assessment followed by the course of action is designed to turn that frustration into jubilation! This group typically possesses the desire; they just require the education and coaching to obtain their desired results.
BEGINNERS, INTERMEDIATES AND SENIORS – The program offers everything needed for this segment of the population to be successful and reach their goals: education, accountability and results. These three components are absolutely essential for individuals in this group to be successful!
The consultation program will provide you with comparative data, charts and knowledge collected up to 4 different times over the course of the year. There is no pass or fail as each consultation will simply be a benchmark to determine the best possible fitness plan.
In order for your assessment results to be accurate it is essential that you pay close attention to the instructions in your consultation journal or on the back of your temporary membership card. For instance the level of water in your system will affect the accuracy of your body composition reading and caffeine will elevate your resting heart rate. In addition, if you exercise or are fatigued prior to your consultation, it would adversely affect your strength and endurance results.
The first step is to ensure that your consultation journal is completed honestly and thoroughly and emailed back to our Fitness Consultant as soon as possible. This will enable your Consultant to identify health risks, physical limitations as well as the key goals and areas you wish to focus on. We would also recommend arriving at your appointment at least 15 minutes early so you have time to change and be ready to meet your Consultant. Together you will need the full allotted time to review your journal, complete the assessments and then prepare your blue-print. Keep an open mind and ask your Consultant to explain anything that you don’t understand or are unsure of. Our goal is to ensure you receive the best possible recommendation in order for you to achieve your goals.
What if I’m not comfortable with a particular assessment?
Please let your Consultant know if there is any part of the assessment that you are unsure of or that makes you uncomfortable. You can decline any assessment but in most cases our Consultant will explain the procedure and reason for the process to put you at ease. There are some circumstances (due to physical limitations) where our Consultants make modifications to the assessments in order to better suit a particular members needs.
A large percentage of the membership base ultimately decides to work with a Trainer for a myriad of reasons. Whether it’s for motivation, education, technique, safety, nutrition, or intensity, a Trainer can offer the best path to real long lasting results. Many of our members are tired of paying for a membership every year and not using it or getting results. They feel they need to invest in education to maximize the benefits of their membership. Fitness is constantly evolving and Trainers are required to stay on the cutting edge in terms of upgrading their certifications and knowledge base. We use other professionals like accountants, lawyers, doctors and mechanics in other areas of our life, so when it comes to fitness it makes sense to work with a pro.
The first consultation is a good starting point as it will provide you with your base-line data regarding your current level of fitness. There is no pass or fail to these assessments as they are used as a benchmark to track your progress going forward. Without follow-up assessments there is no comparable data to ensure you are progressing towards your goals. At times adjustments are needed and the exercise routine or game plan is modified as needed. It’s easy to plateau and your scale at home is not usually the best way to indicate how you are doing.
