Physical Fitness Testing (PFT)

The Physical Fitness Test (PFT) for students in California schools is the FITNESSGRAM®. The main goal of the test is to help students in starting life-long habits of regular physical activity.

Per California Education Code, all students in grades 5, 7, and 9 take the fitness test. The test has 6 parts that show a level of fitness that offer a degree of defense against diseases that come from inactivity. The test results can be used by students, teachers, and parents.
