Fitnessgram includes a multitude of tests to challenge the students and get a baseline for their physical condition. It also gives students a long term goal to continually work towards throughout the year in Physical Education. Some of the tests for Fitnessgram include: Timed Mile, Flexed Arm Hang, Curl Up (sit ups), push ups, and the Pacer Test.
