Fitness testing is a great way to record and measure your progress at the gym. The fitness team can do a number of assessments (e.g. flexibility, cardio vascular endurance, hand grip strength, muscular endurance and 1RM) which can be repeated after a set period of time in order to assess whether your training is improving your fitness or you need to alter your program.
Skin fold test The skin fold test is another method used by health professionals to measure the percentage of body fat a person has. This method is more accurate than the standard BMI test and can be used to give someone a more accurate estimation of his or her body fat percentage. The test is carried out using skin callipers that measure the amount of subcutaneous fat beneath the surface of the skin. A total of six measurements are taken and the body fat percentage is calculated using these measures and the height, weight and gender of the person.
