UAA Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation presents...
The Know Your Numbers (KYN) program is a service that provides a series of exercise tests that will assess your current fitness level to give you the information you need to create health and fitness goals. To reach those goals, your student technician/fitness professional will design an exercise program just for you based on your exercise test results, teach you how to do the exercises correctly and will keep you inspired.
Know Your Numbers requires TWO APPOINTMENTS. One in-person and one via Zoom.
Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the HPL will be implementing specific sanitization and behavioral practices that will be maintained for the safety of our clients, students, and staff. These practices follow the CDC guidelines and include:
Your safety is important to us and we appreciate the practicum opportunity you provide our students during these times. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email us at email@example.com.
VO2 Submax - bike or treadmill
Shoulder Mobility, Deep Squat and Hurdle Step
If you have any questions about specific tests, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Due to the high-risk nature of someone with signs or symptoms of cardiovascular, metabolic or renal disease during our current world situation, we are only accepting low-risk individuals at this time. Not sure if you are considered low or high-risk? You may check using our Medical Clearance Form.
Only 32 spots are available.
Dates of testing: Oct. 20–Nov. 13.

Missed a wellness break you were looking forward to? No worries, here are a few recorded
activities you can play and participate whenever you like and some ideas to do on
your own time.
Quinn created activities that focus on the emotional dimension of wellness. Grab a
sheet of paper and a writing utensil to follow along with these activity examples.
Feelings Association: Set a timer for three minutes, pick one word from the list below, and create a thought bubble web based on that word. Write down any other words, phrases or memories you associate with that word. Once the timer is up, take a look at your thought bubble web and reflect on how that word made you feel.
Poetry: Set a timer for three minutes. Take a look out your window and write a quick poem on what you see, how you feel, or anything that comes to mind after looking out your window. (Help: A Haiku is a simple poem anyone can write. The poem consists of three lines/phrases/sentences. The first sentence is five syllables, the second is seven and the third and final sentence contains five syllables.) Give it a try! You might be surprised at how creative you can be!
