realFIT develops and maintains extensive resources for fitness measurement, including a vast test library, proprietary and public test standards, patented analytical support, and more. Through realFIT Certified™ Data Services, we also provide full access to most resources via standard APIs.
We maintain a comprehensive library of fitness tests, sourced from professional sports combines, military, first responders and more. We continue to add tests regularly and some tests require proprietary equipment, which are clearly noted.
Our library includes many well-known tests, including:
We can also create custom tests as part of our custom scoring services. For each test, we provide a definition, purpose, measurement procedures and the most common usage. Since many of the tests measure multiple fitness categories, the proprietary realFIT approach allows category weights to be assigned to every individual test.
For every individual test, realFIT offers the choice of performance standard for the basis of comparison. Many tests have multiple performance standards. For example, for the Maximum Pull Ups test, you can select from these performance standards:
Each standard may have different minimum and maximum performance levels and even different scales entirely. For the Marines, you get 5 points per pull up and a max of 100 points. On the realFIT absolute scale, a world record is the top level. The realFIT methodology allows you to select the performance measure appropriate to your own goals.
We continually update these standards tables to ensure our performance data is the most accurate possible.
A score set is a collection of individual tests which comprise a unique fitness score. For organizations that want a turnkey solution, realFIT offers predefined score sets, including the patented realFIT score, the most comprehensive assessment of fitness in the market. The realFIT score includes 13 tests in six fitness categories - all against an absolute standard.
As a public service, we will offer complimentary API access to common military and first responder fitness scoring standards. This will include:
We also provide other score sets, developed by realFIT Certified Partners, which may be specific to certain sports or athletic objectives.
A key capability of realFIT data is the mathematical conversion of individual raw test performances into overall scores.
Our patented scoring system not only scores individual test results according to the chosen performance tables, but also calculates an overall score according to your design. We provide options, including
The realFIT methodology allows organization to create their own branded scores and scoring methodology. realFIT will keep your designs confidential if required.
To keep our data tables always up to date, we track performance data across all our tests and scoresets. This also allows us to provide more accurate comparisons for our customers.
NOTE: we do not require our customers to give any identifying personal data regarding their members, such as their name or email address. We are only interested in aggregate data regarding age, gender and performance level.
In addition to providing sophisticated scoring services, we also offer supplemental tools to help our customers deliver their own solutions. Some of these include:
We offer the option to develop your own score, tests and performance benchmarks. You can also decide whether to share your score within the REALFIT community or make it proprietary to your brand. We help you every step of the way:
