Wellness Services for LifeStyle Members

Body-Fat Analysis
LifeStyles members may have their body fat measured by our fitness staff using a hand-held body fat analyzer tool at any time at no charge. We encourage members to strive for a healthy body composition, which includes both lean weight and fat. The body fat analyzer is relatively accurate, however, those striving for a more precise measurement, may request a body fat analysis using infrared technology and calipers. These methods are quick and simple.
Fee: Free to Members


Bone Density Screenings
Low-cost preliminary osteoporosis screenings are offered every month at the Akron General Health & Wellness Center - West & Akron General Health & Wellness Center - North. The painless, heel bone density screening takes just a few minutes and results are received the same day.
