Fitnessgram is a comprehensive fitness assessment battery for youth. It includes a variety of healthrelated physical fitness tests designed to assess cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength, muscular endurance, flexibility and body composition. Criterion-referenced standards associated with good health have been established for children and youth for each of the health-related fitness components. Fitnessgram is also a report card that summarizes the child’s performance on each component of healthrelated fitness. Fitnessgram can be used by students, teachers and parents. Students can use Fitnessgram in planning their personal fitness needs and help guided students in program planning; and parents can use it to help them understand their child’s needs and help the child plan a program of physical activity. Teacher expectations are that students give their best effort in each of the Fitnessgram tests. In giving a best effort, both the individual student and teacher will be able to get an accurate picture of each students’ personal level of fitness.
