Fitnessgram® reports communicate fitness goals to students and parents
Fitnessgram is probably best known for its ability to easily generate the Fitnessgram" report. The Fitnessgram report can be printed as a student report and as a parent report. The student report recommends physical activity program options to help students make it into the Healthy Fitness Zone® standards for those areas where they need improvement. The parent report contains the same information on scores but is addressed to the parents. Both reports explain in nontechnical terms why physical activity is important and how regular physical activity leads to improved health and fitness. Both Fitnessgram reports are a tangible reminder of what students learn in class and a great way to enlist parents' support in their children's physical activity programs.
