McMurry will host a Fitnessgram 10 Texas Tour on June 20 in the Hunt P.E. Center. The “Fitnessgram 10 Texas Tour” is a 12-city tour to provide free in-person FITNESSGRAM 10 training in the 12 TAHPERD regions across Texas.

Training participants will be public school teachers. College students majoring in kinesiology or a related field may also attend.

Fitnessgram is a comprehensive educational, reporting and promotional tool used to ass­ess physical fitness and physical activity levels for children. It is the most widely used children's health-related physical fitness assessment in the world.

Fitnessgram provides accurate assessment reports unique to each student according to their age, gender, and level of health-related fitness based on multiple components rather than just a single measure. These reports use the criterion-referenced Healthy Fitness Zone® standards, which research has shown to accurately measure the level of physical fitness necessary for good health.
