FitnessGram is the Solution.

FitnessGram by The Cooper Institute is the most widely used physical fitness assessment in the country, reaching millions of kids nationwide in tens of thousands of schools. Not only does FitnessGram provide assessments, but it also gives scientific validity to school-based programs like NFL PLAY 60, proving that these initiatives work.

Research from The Cooper Institute and partners show that students who are in the Healthy Fitness Zone™ are less likely to develop an illness, have higher academic performance, better attendance, and fewer behavioral and discipline issues.

THAT'S WHY FITNESSGRAM IS THE SOLUTION.

FitnessGram Online Learning Modules

Staying FIT at home.

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, The Cooper Institute realized that the most important thing was providing resources for teachers to distribute and educate on the importance of health-related fitness and living a physically active lifestyle. This realization is what fueled the decision to make FitnessGram Online Learning Modules Developed in late spring 2020, the modules contained the following fitness resources: protocols, assessment cadences, and educational videos and documents. Additionally, this content allows teachers to easily incorporate important health and fitness information into their digital classrooms (e.g. Google classrooms, Schoology, Canvas, etc.). The Online Learning Modules will continue to be enhanced with additional resources and videos coming soon!

FitnessGram PACER Test Remixes! powered by Hip Hop Public Health 

New Sound. New Beeps. Same Test.

Created in collaboration with Hip Hop Public Health and The Cooper Institute, the new 6-track album revamps the decades-old FitnessGram PACER Test with hip-hop, pop, electronic dance and Latin-inspired beats, bringing a dance party vibe and motivating students throughout the 22-minute test. Narrated in Spanish and English, the updated sound encourages students with positive “shout outs” and the harsh beeps have been replaced with new “lap” tones and “level” sounds that indicate when the test is about to get a little faster so they can form a lasting appreciation for physical fitness. The album also includes instrumental versions of the tracks that can be used for practice or as a fun soundtrack to any fitness activity.

FitnessGram Activity Tracker

GET ACTIVE. GET HEALTHY.

The Physical Activity Guidelines recommend youth participate in at least 60 minutes of physical activity on a daily basis. Recognizing this priority, The Cooper Institute developed the FitnessGram Activity Tracker app geared towards youth and designed to track steps and minutes of physical activity. While it is a simple concept, the ability of students to increase awareness of their physical activity patterns can make a significant difference in the health of our youth.  This Tracker App will help educators to monitor progress and ensure students are increasing in physical activity.
