Optimum Health Assessment: Every prospective member takes a 30 minute assessment, designed in partnership with the East Hawaii Independent Physicians Association, University of Hawaii Hilo Department of Kinesiology and LQ Mission Assessments. Measuring 45 different data points, the Optimum Health Report Card presents a True Fitness Level, True Body Age and True LQ (Life Quality) score which makes up the composite Optimum Health Score. This score determines the best fitness program for each member. Taken quarterly, members can scientifically determine when it is best for them to “graduate” to the next level fitness program.
