Beep Test Downloads
We have much more than just the audio files to conduct the beep test, though we do have two versions of the beep test, with a male or female voice announcing the levels. To assist you with training for the beep test, there are also continuous tracks at eight different speeds, as well as an audio track with no level indicators — only the beeps! In addition to these audio files, there is also an eBook Beep Test Guide, which includes a beep test specific consent form, a recording sheet to help with the scoring, plus lots of other information to help prepare, conduct and analyze your beep test. The round it off, there is an Excel spreadsheet with an off-line calculator, and tables for entering, tracking, analyzing and presenting results.
Fitness Testing Guide
The fitness testing guide is a free ebook that is great resource for athletes, coaches, teachers, parents, personal trainers and exercise physiologists—anyone who needs to evaluate their own or someone else's fitness level, or to gain a greater understanding of tests that they have performed.
Fitness Testing Documents
We have created a free to download blank standard recording sheet for writing down fitness testing conditions and results. There is also an information sheet, Preparation for Fitness Testing, with information about what to do and what not to do in the days before testing.
RPE 'Borg' Scale
The RPE Scale or Borg Scale is a common method for subjectively determining exercise intensity levels - a measure of how hard you feel your body is working. It is commonly used in some research studies, but may also be used in training programs to describe the intensity of training sessions. There are two versions available for download, one has a scale from 1-10, the other scale is from 6-20.
The Fat Calculator Software is a very useful and easy to use software program (Windows only), designed for health professionals, researchers and students for easy recording and calculation of body fat percent.
