Fitness Floor Orientation
    • Initial User Orientation

    This program gives our new users an overview of all SRWC and ONAT programs. You'll also learn the proper usage and techniques for our resistance-training, cardiovascular, weight room and selectorized equipment.

    • Stability Ball Orientation

    Add variety to your workout with the stability ball. This orientation focuses on core stability and total body strengthening using the stability ball. Participants learn proper form and unique exercises with the stability ball.

    • Weight Room Orientation

    Get acquainted with our weight room and learn about the proper usage and handling of free weights and selectorize machines. You'll also get a crash course in weight room etiquette.

    • Stretching Orientation

    Participants will learn safe stretching techniques and proper form to increase their flexibility and reduce fitness injuries.

    • Bosu Ball Orientation

    Bosu is an acronym for "both sides up." Use a Bosu ball with the platform side either up or down to effectively train core muscles. This orientation teaches you different exercise techniques to challenge your balance.

    • Stretch Band Orientation

    Bands can be used to increase flexibility, improve cardiovascular conditioning, increase muscle tone, increase speed for athletic endeavors and add resistance to both free-weights and machines.

    • Circuit Training Orientation

    This type of exercise performed on machine (or selectorized) weights in the ONAT combines the benefits of resistance training with cardiovascular training by moving quickly from one weight machine to another. Each exercise is performed for 40 seconds, with 20 seconds to switch stations, so that a full body workout can be achieved in about 30 minutes. You'll learn how to determine your starting weight and how to adjust each piece of equipment.
