Health Risk Zones

It is important to understand feedback on fitness testing. One of options to present fitness results is health risk, associated with individual scores.

FitBack individual report displays health-risk as traffic light: green (fit zone), yellow (improvement recommended zone), and red (improvement strongly recommended zone). These standards compare an individual's performance against an absolute criterion, which is a predefined standard associated with a specific health outcome.
