Field-Based Health-Related Physical Fitness Tests in Children and Adolescents

Physical fitness is a state of being that reflects a person’s ability to perform specific exercises or functions and is closely related to present and future health outcomes.
In a school context, tests are being used as institutional fitness assessment tools, educational tools to teach youth and their families about the importance of physical fitness, and as communication tools to guide individuals on attainable goals for maintaining fitness and health.
