The Physical Fitness Test (PFT) for students in California schools is the FITNESSGRAM®. The main goal of the test is to help students in starting life-long habits of regular physical activity.

Students in grades five, seven, and nine are required to take the fitness test, whether they are enrolled in a physical education class or not. The test has six parts that show a level of fitness that offer a degree of defense against diseases that come from inactivity. The test results can be used by students, teachers, and parents to plan fitness goals and to understand a child's fitness level. 

The FITNESSGRAM® is composed of the following six fitness areas, with a number of test options provided for most areas:

  1. Aerobic Capacity
  2. Abdominal Strength and Endurance
  3. Upper Body Strength and Endurance
  4. Body Composition
  5. Trunk Extensor Strength and Flexibility
  6. Flexibility
