Fitness Testing Program

The Functional Fitness Testing Program is a series of six simple tests designed to measure strength, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance.

The test is primarily for seniors who are at risk of losing their independence. It is for those seniors who are currently inactive or not doing regular strength training.

A fitness staff person will administer the test and interpret the individual results. They will then modify a program to meet specific needs, following up every two weeks to check progression. At the end of 10 weeks the test is retaken as a measure for improvement
