A physical fitness check is a check designed to measure physical power, agility, and endurance. They're commonly employed in educational establishments as part of the bodily schooling curriculum, in drugs as a part of diagnostic testing, and as eligibility requirements in fields that concentrate on physical potential reminiscent of army or police.
Throughout the twentieth century, scientific proof emerged demonstrating the usefulness of power coaching and cardio exercise in sustaining overall well being, and more agencies began to include standardized health testing. In the United States, the President's Council on Youth Fitness was established in 1956 as a way to encourage and monitor fitness in schoolchildren.
