I am a health consultant to senior citizens. This book provides easy and effective tests to measure their aerobic fitness, strength and flexibility without sophisticated equiptment. I am grateful to the authors for their research and testing prior to publishing this tool for alerting seniors to their level of fitness.

I am writing this as a former student of Dr. Jones that now works with older adults. I know how much work Dr. Jones and Dr. Rikili did in publishing this book!

This test is so easy to understand for both the client and instructor. The equipment needed is minimal and inexpensive. This book is a highly recommended and a very wise investment for informing and motivating your senior clients!
