Welcome to the Health & Wellness Department here at RTH! We know that health is not limited to physical health, so we’ve worked hard to bring you a diverse selection of programs and events designed to meet needs in all areas of your life. We offer programs such as group exercise, allowing you to build both physical health and social health, as well as personal training, yoga, swim classes, strength and conditioning, and massage therapy, to name a few. In addition, we offer child development and parenting seminars, nutrition and meal planning, preparation for high school and college athletics, and exercise adapted for individuals with specific needs.

We want to move our entire community forward, one workout at a time.

InBody 570 Body Composition Analyzer: The InBody scale is a machine that measures body composition such as muscle mass, and fat mass, through bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA). At RTH we will be able to record and monitor our cilent’s fitness journey and help us create better programs that fits their needs. The InBody can help users understand what their weight is made up of. They will be able to see how their weight is broken down into muscle, fat, bone, and body water.
