Today we are going to test one of the Aerobic Capacity Tests used on the 7th Grade California Personal Fitness Test (PFT): The 20 meter PACER test. This test will be one of 2 ways we will assess your aerobic capacity for the fitness test (the other being the 1 mile run). For the PACER, we will be relocating to the gymnasium after a quick WOD brief. Below are the MINIMUM goals you should set for your age/gender…since the number of laps below are the minimum requirements to earn a passing score and be considered in the ‘Healthy Fitness Zone’ for this category. Good luck and remember to SPRINT TO THE FINISH!!!!
