Do you consider yourself strong, fit and capable? Take the Cooper Test and find out how well you compare to your peers. These tests of strength and endurance give you an objective way to measure your fitness and set goals for the future. The figures in the charts below came from research on 1000s of people, so every time you test yourself, you will have a clear comparison to people your age.
Before you begin, please warm up with a brisk walk or light jog (5-10 min) and a few gentle stretching exercises. Note: Please get clearance from your doctor before taking any strenuous fitness test like the Cooper Test.
Cardio Test Instructions: Go to a 400 meter track (at a school) or measure a distance of 1.5 miles on a flat surface. After warming up, run / walk 1.5 miles at your best effort. When you are finished, compare your results with your age group in the table below
Upper body strength testing
Place a folded towel or cushion (3 inches tall) under your chest. Space your hands shoulder width apart and keep your back straight. Do as many push ups as you can without resting, touching your chest to the cushion each time. When you are finished, see your results in the tables below.
Note: This test is modified for ladies. The push ups are done on your knees. During the push ups, do not lift your rear end in the air. Maintain a straight line through your body–from your head to your knees.
Athletes’ fitness test and an important health measurement tool.

Improving your cardio fitness may be the most efficient way to improve your overall health.
