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.
You can also have them walk a certain distance either on the treadmill or outdoors. You can give them a set distance to cover and time them or measure the distance they can cover in a set time. Another idea could be to do a wall-sit test. You can also ask the participants if they would like to sign up for a race sometime in the near future. They can compete either individually or as a team. This can help with building a team spirit and motivate those who are not willing to do it alone. You can also have a contest of how many steps each person takes every day for a month and have them sign up during the health fair event (it will require pedometers). These are just some ideas that might help you come up with something creative for your clients.
I hope this helps.
