Fitness testing is simply taking measurements of the body and its responses to exercise so that we can work out where a component of someone’s fitness is, at any given moment in time.
How do you know where you’re going if you don’t know where you’ve been? This is a wonderful quote that can be applied to many areas of our lives, especially fitness. One of the most helpful strategies I learned from being certified as a personal trainer was to start every client with a fit test. See what you are capable of at the beginning, that way later on, it’ll be easier for you to see and experience the progress that you are making on your road to weight loss. Sometimes it may take longer than we anticipated to see our goal weight, the pounds don’t fall off as fast as we want them too. With a fit test, you can see progress in smaller doses!
