Description In our study, we analyzed the use of different tests of aerobic fitness, focusing on a broad segment of the population. In the analysis, we worked with groups of Running tests, Walk Tests and Step Tests. The selection was made through a meta-analysis of previously measured data. Subsequent selection was done on the basis of predetermined criteria, which stemmed from scientific knowledge and experience of examiners. As the criteria were determined using a wide age range; material, time and cost efficiency; the possibility to measure more probands at the same time; an adequate number of examiners given to the number of people tested and high validity and reliability of the test.
