Shuttle Fitness Tests

Shuttle run tests involve repetitive running back and forth, either over the same distance, or with changing distances. Depending on the distance, duration and intensity, the shuttle run test will measure different physiological attributes, from short duration high-intensity tests measuring speed and agility, to longer and slower paced tests measuring aerobic fitness (and many in-between). The general description of shuttle run tests is outlined here, see the links to specific shuttle run tests.
