FitQuest brings full bio-mechanical lab technology to the gym or corporate wellness centre.
Using tests developed and recognised by sports scientists, with a comparative database of over 42,000 individuals, FitQuest provides the first self-administered, scientifically robust fitness measurement.
So, you can think of FitQuest as being a mini sports science lab. It doesn’t do everything you would see in a normal lab, but it does share many features and technologies. FitQuest was designed to allow ordinary gym users to quickly assess their general fitness, irrespective of what physical activity they prefer.
FitQuest guides users through a step by step series of physical activities that are designed to measure some of their "core skills". These measurements are therefore "non-sports specific". That means that whether they are a ballet dancer or a rugby player, they share the same core skills. FiQuest does not measure how good an individual is at a specific sport, but it does indicate how physically fit they are.
FitQuest not only measures individual parameters, but provides an overall fitness assessment known as the Fitness Quotient (or FQ™ score). To help your members understand the results, we have converted the data into a unified fitness score, similar to the IQ test for intelligence.
The FQ score is based on measurements of over 42,000 users. As there is a significant difference in the average results for males and females and between ages, a user’s FQ score is calculated by comparing their measurements with others in the same sex and age group.
If the user obtains an FQ of 100, they are average for their age and gender. The results are provided for each parameter assessed, so that they can see their relative strengths and weaknesses and identify areas to improve.Fitness quotient in detail
