- Body Mass Index (BMI)
- Waist circumference
- Percentage body fat
||The ability of the circulatory and respiratory systems to supply oxygen to working muscles during sustained physical activity. Cardio-respiratory fitness is an independent predictor of cardiovascular disease and all-cause mortality.
- Maximal oxygen consumption
- Aerobic power
- 20 metre shuttle performance
- 6 minute walk test
|Cardiovascular and Metabolic Health
||Functional status of the cardiovascular and metabolic systems, as assessed by biomarkers and functional indicators.
- Metabolic syndrome components (e.g.,: abdominal obesity, high triglycerides, low HDL, high systolic blood pressure, high diastolic blood pressure and glucose intolerance or diagnosed diabetes)
- Body mass and body composition
- Maximal aerobic power & aerobic endurance
||The process of knowing, attending, remembering and reasoning; also the content of the processes, such as concepts and memories.
- Mini Mental State Exam (MMSE)
- Memory tests
- Perceptual skills tests
- Tests of developmental level
- Academic achievement

- Controlling your temper

- Mental health
||A group of fitness components including muscular strength, endurance and power. Muscular strength is the ability to generate force with a muscle or group of muscles; local muscular endurance is the ability to perform repeated contractions with a muscle or group of muscles under sub-maximal load; and muscular power refers to the rate at which muscles perform work.
- Muscular strength: maximal bench press, maximal squat, grip strength
- Muscular endurance: push-ups, chin-ups, plank, arm cycling, chair stand test
- Muscular power: vertical jump, standing long jump, sit-to-stand
||Behaviors that are carried out with the goal of helping other people.
- Picking up something someone lost and giving it back
|Quality of Life
||An individual’s perception of their position in life in the context of the culture and value systems in which they live and in relation to their goals, expectations, standards and concerns.
||Health Related Quality of Life (HRQL) is a concept developed by health researchers to describe the combination of several core dimensions including physical functioning, emotional well-being, social functioning and role activities, as well as health perceptions and global assessment of life satisfaction.
