We are going to cover the three commonly used fitness tests for the swim bike and run, then a set of basic body measurements you can do yourself and finish up with a selection of body conditioning tests.

I have to put it out there, all three of the fitness tests aren’t pleasant, they are designed to get everything out of you in order to show an honest representation of where your fitness is right now. Therefore try to spread these tests out and come into them as fresh as possible and in the right mindset.
