Groningen Walking Test

The Groningen Walking Test is an aerobic fitness test, a variation of the maximal multistage 20m shuttle-run test (Leger & Lambert, 1982) adapted in order to suit an elderly population. The beep test was modified as the frequent sharp turns at both ends of the 20m shuttle may strain the knees and joints of the elderly participants. This test is part of the protocol for the Groningen Fitness Test for the Elderly.
