Georgia SHAPE is for Families
If you’re here because you’ve received your child’s FITNESSGRAM, you’re not alone. FITNESSGRAM is being distributed to more than 500,000 students in Georgia. To improve outcomes in the future, Georgia’s leaders are partnering with others intent on making an impact, including the Atlanta Falcons, the Atlanta Braves and even celebrities—all standing with you and your child to make Georgia’s students the healthiest they can be.
FITNESSGRAM is a basic, benchmark measurement of fitness among our students. The FITNESSGRAM tool used for SHAPE’s annual standardized fitness assessment evaluates five different parts of health-related fitness, including aerobic capacity, muscular strength, muscular endurance, flexibility and body composition using objective criteria. FITNESSGRAM is administered to all students enrolled in grades 1-12 and taught by a certified physical education teacher. Most importantly, your child’s FITNESSGRAM results are delivered only to you. Others will only see and learn from a statewide compilation of data.
It sounds complex, but it really isn’t.
Let GeorgiaSHAPE.org serve as a starting place for your family. Here, you can learn more about the measurements of FITNESSGRAM.
Whether your family is comprised of two people or 10, you can plan healthy and tasty meals by searching our recipes.
