The California Physical Fitness Test is Back

Each year, California public schools use the FITNESSGRAM® for their Physical Fitness Test (PFT).  Grades five, seven, and nine are expected to participate. The main goal of the test is to help students reinforce or learn about life-long healthy activity habits. The test assesses the following five fitness areas: 
  • aerobic capacity
  • abdominal strength and endurance
  • trunk extensor strength and flexibility
  • upper body strength and endurance 
  • flexibility
