document this is the healthy fitness zones based on age
People come in all shapes and sizes, but everyone can benefit from regular physical activity and a healthy level of physical fitness. The FITNESSGRAM fitness test battery evaluates five different parts of health-related fitness, including aerobic capacity, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and body composition. Parents play an important role in shaping children’s physical activity and dietary habits. The report which is generated from the data we collect will help you evaluate your child’s current level of health-related fitness and help you identify ways to promote healthy lifestyles in your family.
FitnessGram was developed more than 20 years ago by The Cooper Institute to enable physical educators to facilitate communicating fitness testing results to students and to parents.
FitnessGram helps achieve goals by applying easy-to-use technology to conduct fair and accurate fitness assessments and easily record the results, set individualized goals for students, give students responsibility for managing and recording their own activities, create detailed reports of progress and results for students, parents, and administrators help students and parents understand the value of physical activity.
FitnessGram assesses three general components of health-related physical fitness, which have been identified as important to overall health and function.
The Progressive Aerobic Cardiovascular Endurance Run (PACER) test is a variation of the Beep Test, It is a maximal aerobic fitness test.
Body Mass Index (BMI)
BMI stands for Body Mass Index. It is a measure of body composition. BMI is calculated by taking a person’s weight and dividing by their height squared. For instance, if your height is 1.82 meters, the divisor of the calculation will be (1.82 * 1.82) = 3.3124. If your weight is 70.5 kilograms, then your BMI is 21.3 (70.5 / 3.3124) (see calculator links on the right hand side of this page).
The higher the figure the more overweight you are. Like any of these types of measures it is only an indication and other issues such as body type and shape have a bearing as well. Remember, BMI is just a guide – it does not accurately apply to elderly populations, pregnant women or very muscular athletes such as weight lifters.
