Physical fitness testing and assessment is an integral component of any formal, structured
training programme. Testing and assessment is considered essential by fitness
professionals as it provides trainers, coaches, fitness instructors and the individual with a
method of measuring the training programme’s:
- Efficacy: does it work (yes or no); and
- Effectiveness: how well does it work (0%-100%).
It is also important to ensure that the test or assessment utilised for measurement is
appropriate to the training being conducted. For example, if your training objective is to
increase your speed for the 400m then conducting the press-up test (Test 29) to measure
this would be illogical.
