Overview

The Senior Fitness Test DVD is a companion resource to the Senior Fitness Test Manual. It shows how to administer the test battery properly to both individuals and groups. It is particularly useful in training volunteers or peer mentors who work with the test administration.

The Senior Fitness Test DVD illustrates how to conduct seven individual fitness test items involving common activities such as getting up from a chair, walking, lifting, bending, and stretching. It also explains what equipment is needed to conduct the test items, provides safety tips, and demonstrates how to score each test item.

The Senior Fitness Test is the answer to the need for a simple, easy-to-use battery of tests to assess the functional fitness of older adults. The test is safe and enjoyable for older adults, it meets scientific standards for reliability and validity, and it has accompanying performance norms based on actual performance scores of over 7,000 men and women between the ages of 60 and 94.

The Senior Fitness Test DVD underscores the importance of measuring the functional fitness of older adults and identifying people who are at risk for loss of functional mobility. Use this DVD to train peer mentors in order to expedite group testing.
