The annual fitness assessment is composed of five events.


Body Composition

sit and reach

mobility and flexibility


Speed and muscular endurance

8-point plank

muscular strength and stability

1-mile run

Aerobic capacity


Waist to height ratio can be obtained by dividing waist size by height and is an effective indicator of risks associated with obesity, heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and hypertension.

The purpose of the sit and reach test is to assess the flexibility and mobility of the lower back and hamstring muscles. It is used as a measure of overall flexibility and can help identify potential tightness or imbalances in these major muscle groups.







The purpose of this speed, anaerobic/muscular endurance test is to evaluate an individual’s capacity to perform repetitive, high-intensity muscle contractions without relying on oxygen as a primary energy source, providing insights into their ability to sustain intense physical activity.

8-Point plank

The purpose of the 8-point plank hold is to test various muscle groups simultaneously, including the core, shoulders, arms, and legs, that’s needed for overall stability, balance, body awareness and muscular endurance.






1-mile run

The purpose of a 1-mile run test is to evaluate an individual’s aerobic fitness and overall cardiovascular endurance. It provides a quick and practical way to assess their running speed and endurance.
