Fitness Testing

  • Fitness testing takes place in fourth and fifth grade at Paul Road. We use the Fitnessgram as our   fitness assessment tool in Gates-Chili. Students will get tested twice each year until they graduate from High School.

    The Fitnessgram is a comprehensive educational, reporting and promotional tool used to ass­ess physical fitness and physical activity levels for children. It is the most widely used children's health-related physical fitness assessment in the world.

    The assessment measures three components of health-related physical fitness that have been identified as important to overall health and function:

    • aerobic capacity;
    • body composition; and
    • muscular strength, endurance, and flexibility.

    Parents will receive a print-out of their child's Fitnessgram report sent home.
