    FITNESSGRAM Overview:
     
    FITNESSGRAM is a fitness assessment and reporting program for youth developed by The Cooper Institute.  The assessment includes a variety of health-related physical fitness tests that assess cardiovascular fitness, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition.  Scores from these assessments are compared to Healthy Fitness Zone standards to determine students' overall physical fitness and suggest areas for improvement.
     
    The tests include:
    • PACER
    • Push-ups
    • Curl-ups
    • Trunk Lifts
    • Body Composition

    The Healthy Fitness Zone standards are not based on class averages or any other peer comparisons.  They are based on levels of fitness needed for good health.  The standards are set specifically for boys and girls of various ages.
