Participant risk stratification is calculated to reduce risk of
health hazards or injury during fitness testing, and follows
American College of Sports Medicine guidelines. Participants
placed in the “high risk” category may be unable to complete
the exercise test during the day of their appointment,
but will be able to fully participate in all other testing.
Individual risk assessment will be performed by AWC staff t
o determine eligibility of “high risk” participants.
"High risk" participants advised not to participate in an
exercise test on the day of their appointment will be required
to seek physician clearance to gain approval for exercise testing.
