FitnessGram Brochure Project
Due Date:_______________ Name and Hour

Directions
You will be creating a brochure for the FitnessGram fitness tests. This brochure would be used to explain the importance of the tests taken. Below you will find resources to find information for each of the tests, & the rubric for the assignment.

Components of Health Related Physical Fitness
1) Cardiovascular Endurance: Shows how efficiently our heart, circulatory system, and respiratory system work together over a long period of time. Examples to increase cardiovascular endurance: Running, cycling, swimming.

2) Muscular Strength: The amount of power a muscle can produce. Examples to increase muscular strength: Weightlifting, gymnastics, using playground equipment.

3) Muscular Endurance: A muscle’s ability to produce power for a long duration. Examples to increase muscular endurance: Running, swimming, weightlifting.

4) Flexibility: The ability,of joints to move through their full range of motion. Examples to increase flexibility: Stretching, gymnastics.

5) Body Composition: Shows the relative amounts of fat body mass to lean body mass. Examples to lower fat: All cardiovascular activities.

Six Categories of the FitnessGram Fitness Tests

1) Cardiovascular Endurance
* One Mile Run
* PACER
Purpose: To determine the efficiency of the person’s heart and lungs to supply oxygen for the muscles to continue to exercise.

2) Muscular Strength/Endurance: Upper Body Strength/Endurance
* FitnessGram Push Up
* Modified Pull Up
Purpose: To determine the upper body strength of an individual. This is important because upper body strength determines if a person would be able to lift and hold different objects.

3) Muscular Strength/Endurance: Abdominal Strength/Endurance
* Curl Up
Purpose: To determine the abdominal strength of the abdominal (stomach) muscles. This is important because the stronger the abdominal muscles are the smaller the chance of back strain as you age. Weak abdominal muscles places extra pressure on your lower back muscles.

4) Muscular Strength/Flexibility: Lower Back
* Trunk Lift
Purpose: To determine the muscular strength/flexibility of the lower back muscles.

5) Flexibility: Shoulders/Hips
* Shoulder Stretch
* Back Saver Sit & Reach
Purpose: To determine the range of motion (RoM) for the shoulder or hips. Limited flexibility in these two joints will decrease the ability to function normally in every day living for both moving (like walking) and lifting objects.

6) Body Composition
* Height/Weight for Body Mass Index reading (BMI)

Purpose: To determine the percentage of body fat in your body compared to lean muscle mass. The “normal” fat levels are considered optimal for leading a healthy lifestyle. People who have an unhealthy levels of either low or high percentages of body fat are more susceptible to health risks and diseases.
