 CENTRAL COLLEGE OF COMMERCE
 HEALTH AND FITNESS DEPARTMENT
Fitness means having sufficient energy and skill to cope in one’s
environment. Fitness is specific to the individual and ranges from
the optimum fitness required by top athletes through to that
required to cope with daily tasks
           Fitness tests are carried out to establish an individual’s overall
           fitness level- range of flexibility, cardiovascular function,
           muscular strength/endurance ability and body composition in
           order to give the personal trainer/instructor or coach guidelines
           as to the specific fitness components to be focused upon during
           training
Fitness testing is used as a means of testing athletes and fitness
enthusiasts for progression in their sport or improvement in
health/wellness/lifestyle.

          SUMMARY. General fitness programmes for the general public
          and athletes must be structured to stress all the systems that
          contribute to fitness. Fitness testing is used to assess such
          systems and quantify levels of fitness allowing safe and efficient
          training programmes to be constructed
