Abstract: The following report represents a summary of a study which was commissioned by the National Assembly for Wales on the feasibility of carrying out a research project on the fitness levels of Welsh children. Although this study was conducted in 2004, it is still considered of real relevance and interest today, particularly given the recent recommendations that have been made concerning fitness testing children within the Annual Chief Medical Officers (CMO) report (Department of Health, March 2010). The report recommends that: 1. comprehensive physical fitness testing should be piloted in secondary schools 2. the pilot must include both standard tests of cardiorespiratory fitness and multi-stage fitness assessments. (Department of Health, 2010, p.29).
