Fitnessgram

The FITNESSGRAM physical fitness assessment is not based on athletic ability, but on good health. FITNESSGRAM includes a number of different assessments because fitness has multiple components. Some kids have good muscular fitness but need improvement on aerobic fitness.

We focus on four assessments:

1. PACER ( Progressive Aerobic Cardiovascular Endurance Run)
2. Curl Ups
3. Pushups
4. Sit and Reach (flexibility)

 Data is collected from Fifth Grade students and provided to the state of Missouri to be used to study trends. Grades 3-5 work on meeting HFZ (Healthy Fitness Zones) for different assessments. All grade levels run the PACER.
