We are just starting to spark employee wellness at our site. We have a lot of over weight, uninterested people who we are trying to motivate. We are having a kick off health fair and want to do some kind of fitness testing. We have the step test, plans to use hula hoops and balance discs, but looking for some more creativity.
obviously, you have to unite creativity and safety as you are dealing with the unfit.
I can think of excursion reach tests for arms and legs. If you do not have a grid, you could use cones. This will illustrate discrepancies between the right and left side of the body in a really tangible way.
Another test on the floor is to have the subject lie an a roller from head to tailbone and have them lift one leg and the other. They can first do this with hands on the floor and then try it with hands off. Creates endless giggles but also demonstrates that some work on core stabilization may be a good idea.
