Your Age Fitness. This parameter reflects your fitness level compared to the fitness level of healthy individuals of your age group. It shows how good you are for your age.
Fitness Level. This parameter reflects your current fitness level on the worldwide scale. It is verbal-numeric: you get the verbal value (Depleted - Very Poor - Poor -Fair - Good - Very Good - Excellent) as well as its numeric representation: 0.0-7.0. Given this value and result interpretations you can see how fit you are, set up goals to achieve the excellent value. Note: to have the correct fitness level value you must avoid having certain conditions (see program screens for details) before monitoring. However, if the required conditions are not met the fitness level parameter can be interpreted as a level of current fitness power: higher before the training and lower after it. Professional athletes use this parameter before the championship to determine their readiness.
Progress Since Last Test. This parameter shows the progress you've made since the last time you've performed the Fitness Test.Use this parameter to track the short-term effectiveness of your fitness program.
Last 6 months progress. This parameter shows the progress you've made in fitness level during the last 6 months. Use this parameter to track the long-term effectiveness of your fitness program.

Know your fitness level
Whether you just begin your fitness program or already in progress, fitness level is a very important indicator that should be taken into account in order to select the right set of exercises. Professional coaches highly recommend everybody to assess their fitness level and to begin their workout with exercises designed for that level. If your fitness club hasn't joined Health Reviser fitness program, make sure to use Physical Fitness Test every time before going to gym.
What is your best time to workout?
Each individual has its own best time to workout. It's the best time to make progress and to minimize harm to the organism that might not always be ready for an exercise. It is recommended to take several fitness level assessments: in early morning, late morning, afternoon etc... And repeat it for 2-3 days. The time of the day when your fitness level is the highest is the best time for workout. It may be a surprise for you that morning jogging should be moved to the evening time or vice versa - whatever fitness test is telling you.
How much to exercise?
It is very important to spend the right amount of time exercising for optimal results. Do not overtrain or undertrain the body. Fitness test report will provide you target heart rate diagram (in addition to fitness level) for every day workout. Combining Fitness Test with Health Snapshot after workout gives the insight on how exhaustive the training was for the body. Do not allow negative Health Snapshot reports after workout. Such workouts will be good neither for your fitness nor health.

You'll be able not only assess your fitness level, but to see how fit you are on the worldwide scale and comparing to people of your age and gender.

Avoid overtraining! If you can spare 3 minutes before hitting the gym, the Fitness Test will help you determine what workload is best for you that day. Did you know that when you overtrain, you cease making progress, and can even begin to lose strength and fitness? Improvements in strength and fitness occur only during the rest period following hard training. This process takes at least 12-24 hours to complete. If sufficient rest is not available then complete renewal cannot occur. If this imbalance between hard training and insufficient rest continues then your fitness level will eventually plateau and decline. Fitness Test readings are sensitive to the levels of exhaustion, stress and fatigue found in your body.

The Science Behind Fitness Test
Fitness Level evaluation. Fitness Test evaluates your current fitness level. What does that mean? Your fitness level means your body’s ability to withstand a physical workload (how much) and to recover in a timely manner. In everyday life you can see how some people can easily run several miles, while others can’t walk for more than 10 minutes. The difference in these people is in their fitness level.
Fitness tests - old methods. There are number of tests that can be used to supposedly determine fitness level. These tests are based on BMI, Weight, Resting Heart Rate, VO2 Max, Push Ups… However, these tests are either expensive or/and inaccurate for some simple reasons. It is very difficult to develop standards based on a test time interval just because the number of sit ups, push ups and their accuracy varies a lot during the test. In addition, heart rate measures after exercise are difficult to make accurately, you have to use a heart rate monitor. Anyway, these methods were created a long time ago, when computer did not exist yet, therefore should be excused for their inaccuracy.
Fitness tests - newest, the most accurate, methods. What are the most effective and accurate methods in assessing fitness level today? This Fitness Test is based on the one of the most accurate methods of fitness assessment. Computer diagnostics of the autonomic nervous system response on a simple standup maneuver. The standup maneuver causes heart rate to rise within the first 10-15 seconds because blood pressure drops due to gravitational redistribution of the blood mass. Then the cardiovascular system attempts to compensate an orthostatic effect of standing up by constricting peripheral blood vessels. As a result blood pressure returns to its normal level and heart rate drops. Athlete body reaction is fast and strong, while sedentary lifestyle makes body react with a delay and a little amplitude. This serves as a base of determining a fitness level.
Fitness tests - international collaboration effort. This fitness test was created by a group of scientists from USA, Europe, Russia, Japan and other countries. The research was based on a vast amount of fitness tests on volunteers of different ages and gender starting from people who never exercised and ending up with a national Olympic team. This research data allowed to develop a unique algorithm of fitness assessment. This algorithm represents one’s fitness level on two different scales – absolute, where user’s results are compared with a full-range of individuals, another scale is age- and gender-related. The absolute scale compares your fitness level with beginners and top athletes of all ages and gender. If you are competitive, this is exactly what you need. Try to get the highest score and beat a national sport team. At the same time this is not a very good scale for beginners and seniors. At certain age it is very difficult, for even well trained body, to compete with 18 y.o. individuals because of body’s physiology (and in most cases it’s not a good idea). However, when you switch to the age-related scale, you can always get an excellent fitness score; and your goal would probably be to keep it for as long as possible. So, do not wait. Get your absolute and age-related fitness level today! This would help you improve your fitness to the highest level and, the most important, stay healthy.
