The UKK Institute’s walking test involves walking two kilometers on a flat surface as quickly as possible, and it is intended for adults aged 20–65. The test measures the performance of the respiratory and circulatory systems, i.e. oxygen uptake. The test is based on an estimate of maximum oxygen uptake (VO2max). The test result is expressed as a fitness index that takes into account the test subject’s age, gender, height, weight, time spent walking and heart rate at the end of the walk. The fitness index indicates the fitness level of the participant compared to the reference values for women and men of the same age.

  • a pre-test health survey

  • an instructed warm-up

  • a walk test; walking for 2 kilometers (1.2 miles) at an even, brisk pace

  • heart rate measurement at the end

  • feedback from the test and instructions for the future

Price: 15 € / person

The UKK walk test is also great for larger groups (minimum of five people).
