Description

Chester Step Test Kit (30cm/12inch) –  is generally suitable for those under 40 years of age who take regular physical exercise and are used to moderately vigorous exertion.

A sub-maximal, multi-stage heart rate aerobic capacity test developed by Professor Kevin Sykes. It is a testing method for workplace fitness screening. This is now also used by a variety of industries and sectors.

Recommended by the Home Office for fire-fighter service recruitment, training and measuring yearly fitness, it is similar in its stepping concept to the shorter in length, Harvard Step Test.  The step test assessment uses a variety of step heights from 15cm, 20cm, 25cm and 30cm.

Chester step test is great for all ages and abilities with no gender bias for improved fitness rate. This Chester Step Test Kit is inexpensive, easy to standardise and portable. It  can be used in health clubs to test as part of their health/fitness screening programs.

First published in 1998, this fifth edition written for exercise professionals provides reliable information for performing the Chester tests. The test is easy to perform with the only variable in the test being the stepping rate. For example, every 2 minutes, steps taken during that time are increased.
