FITNESSGRAM Healthy Fitness Zones

It is important to understand what the FITNESSGRAM test results mean. The Healthy Fitness Zone (HFZ) reflects what experts believe, is a reasonable level of fitness that can be attained by stdents who are moderately to vigorously active on a regular basis. While it is not uncommon for students to score in the Healthy Fitness Zone for some tests, and below the Healthy Fitness Zone on others, students should be encouraged to score in the Healthy Fitness Zone on as many test as possible. 


The category below the Healthy Fitness Zone on the FITNESSGRAM test is referred to as "needs improvement." Performing below the Healthy Fitness Zone does not necessarily mean that your student is out of shape or has poor fitness, rather it is meant to help students and parents identify areas that may need additional attention.
