The purpose of this test is to measure aerobic (cardiovascular) fitness levels.
Aim: to see how fast you can walk or run (depending on fitness levels) one mile.
Equipment: stop watch, a one mile flat walking surface, comfortable clothes and training shoes.
Procedure: before starting this test we recommend you have been walking or running at a steady pace for 3-5 minutes. When you are ready start your stop watch and walk or run the mile distance as fast as you can. Stop your stop watch at the end of the mile. Make sure when you have finished the mile you carry on walking or running for a couple of minutes at a slower rate to bring down your heart rate and cool down.
Scoring: the total time to complete the one mile.
