Start The Fitness Test
If we are to plan our journey towards a fitter, healthier self, we first need to assess our current level of fitness - The fitness test provides us with a starting point..
The Couch Potato Challenge fitness test will provide a quick and effective way to check your personal fitness levels and of course, we’ll then have some measurements by which to compare our future selves too.
Perform each fitness test and record your score. When you're ready to begin, choose a test from those listed below. For convenience, maybe start with test number one (Cardiovascular Fitness Test) and work your way through them in the order listed. You could also choose to perform one test per day, at the same time of day.
