A Home Fitness Testing Kit

Fitness testing does not always require expensive equipment. Here are some basic items that you probably have around your home that you can use to test yourself. Along with the list of equipment, there are links to some simple tests that can be performed using these items.

If you are setting up a testing laboratory or a fitness testing business we have listed a suggested fitness testing equipment list. There is also more information about other fitness testing equipment.
