Fitness Assessment

The Assessment Lab at San Juan College offers several different types of tests to measure the five components of physical fitness. These tests include cardiovascular, flexibility, strength, muscle endurance and body composition assessments. Assessments are a great tool for the beginning exerciser to construct a Personal Fitness Program, or for the continuing exerciser to evaluate the efficacy of their current program. Following the test, an appointment will be made to set you up on your own program where you will learn to properly utilize equipment in the FCC that will help you reach your fitness goals. The following are the specific tests offered at the Assessment Lab:

VO2 Sub-maximal Test 

The sub-maximal test is performed via treadmill, walking, or running. We are also capable of providing this through a "step" test. While the sub-maximal test is not as accurate at assessing cardiorespiratory fitness as the maximal test, it still supplies the information needed without the extreme discomfort of going to maximal levels. In this test, the load progressively increases until the subject reaches 85% of their maximum heart rate, and there is no mask.

Muscular Endurance Tests

In these tests, the participant performs as many crunches and push-ups as they can in one minute.

Muscular Strength 

This test measures the static strength of the biceps by holding a curl bar at 90 degrees and pulling as hard as possible for five seconds.

Flexibility Testing

The flexibility of the hamstrings and lower back are measured in the sit and reach test, where the participant is seated with straight legs on the floor and reaches forward as far as possible.

Body Composition

The percentage of body fat can be assessed through the following methods.

  • Bod Pod
  • Electrical Impedances
  • Calipers

*Non-HHPC members will be charged a $20 fee for an assessment with our personal trainers.
