Fitness score assessment is based on a simple 3-4 minute lying-to-standing test combined with Deep Breathing. This test provides a measurement of the level of Physical Fitness based on analysis of Heart Rate Variability (HRV). What is Heart Rate Variability? Our heart rate is constantly fluctuating, and the intervals between heartbeats vary in length. These fluctuations in known as Heart Rate Variability. Assessment based on Heart Rate Variability analysis is scientifically proven to monitor functional integrity of the body and give an accurate fitness evaluation.
- Evaluate your initial fitness level
- Monitor progress of your fitness training program
- Notice any changes to the fitness condition
- Immediately interpret test results
- Can be used by any individual ranging from athlete to sick and elderly, as well as personal
trainers and exercise physiologists
Parameters for Fitness Score Assessment (see fitness chart)
Functional Capacity: Levels 1 – 13
- From highest (1) to lowest (13)
Adaptability: Levels 1 – 7
- From highest (1) to lowest (7)
The Fitness Score
Our fitness depends on the ability to mobilize the body’s resources in response to physical stress. The fitness score is a combination of Functional capacity and Adaptability levels. Functional capacity is a fitness score component that reflects how well one’s body functions as a whole system. It is an indicator of general well-being and may vary in response to stress and changes in lifestyle. Adaptability is a measure of the efficiency of the cardiovascular system in response to physical activity. The “stronger” one’s cardiovascular system the higher is the level of adaptability. Adaptability can significantly improve the right exercise program as well as with diet.
If the fitness score is at the lowest levels of functional capacity and adaptability (within the red zone on the fitness chart), this is a warning sign and needs immediate attention. The individual should not exercise on the day when such a result is detected and is advised to consult a fitness or health care professional before engaging in any physical activity.
