California Physical Fitness Test (PFT)

California Education Code Section 60800 requires each local educational agency (LEA) in California to administer a physical fitness test every year to all students in grades five, seven, and nine. The State Board of Education designated the FITNESSGRAM as the required Physical Fitness Test (PFT) for California public schools. The primary goal of the FITNESSGRAM is to assist students in establishing lifelong habits of regular physical activity.

The FITNESSGRAM tests six main fitness areas that represent three broad components of fitness: (1) Aerobic Capacity, (2) Body Composition, and (3) Muscle Strength, Endurance, and Flexibility. This third component is further divided into four areas: Abdominal Strength and Endurance, Trunk Extensor Strength and Flexibility, Upper Body Strength and Endurance, and Flexibility.

This brochure provides parents and guardians with information about aerobic capacity. Information about the other fitness areas is available in the brochure entitled “Parent and Guardian Guide to the Physical Fitness Test and the FITNESSGRAM.”
