The "Functional Fitness Test" is comprised of 6 tests that measure the following:
o Lower body strength
o Upper body strength
o Endurance/Physical stamina
o Lower body flexibility
o Speed, agility, balance
o Upper body flexibility
Although physical fitness has traditionally been associated with the young through the middle-aged, it is most critical for those in their senior years. Older adults require adequate strength, flexibility, and endurance to accomplish even ordinary, everyday tasks. The "Functional Fitness Test" is an answer to the need for a simple, easy-to-use battery of test items assessing the functional fitness of older adults. The test is safe and enjoyable, it meets scientific standards for reliability and validity, and it has accompanying performance norms from actual performance scores of over 7,000 men and women between the ages of 60 and 94.
