What is Fitnessgram?
FitnessGram assesses the five areas of health-related fitness through a variety of test items. Many test items offer multiple options, so teachers can use the method they prefer. Each score is evaluated against the Healthy Fitness Zone® standards. Using the Healthy Fitness Zone standards helps to minimize comparisons between children and emphasize personal fitness for health rather than goals based solely on performance. Since only modest amounts of exercise are needed for obtaining health benefits, most students who participate in physical activity almost every day will be able to achieve a score that will place them in the Healthy Fitness Zone.
