Gymrun Assessment – How it works

The Gymrun Five Challenges

These take 50 minutes with a class of 30 children.

There are two options for completing the Gymrun Five Challenges:

1. School staff complete our Gymrun Accreditation to deliver the assessment session.

2. We deliver the assessment session in your school.

Measurement: Number of repetitions in 30 seconds.


The Sit Up: Lie on your back and touch the floor above your head with both hands. Sit up and touch the floor in front of your feet with both hands. Return to starting position.

Measurement: Number of repetitions in 60 seconds.


The Dip: With straight arms, place your hands facing forwards on the front edge of the bench. Lower your arms until they make a right angle at your elbows. Return to starting position, keeping your legs straight at all times.
