Workout Anywhere’s Baseline Test is the ultimate efficient and effective measure for determining one’s fitness level and progress. Read on to get started on this anywhere fitness test!

Take on Workout Anywhere’s baseline test to designate a starting point and fitness level.  Then, after every four weeks, repeat to track progress.

We encourage everyone to post their scores either below or in the discussion section.  Posting now is a great way to journal an initial evaluation and for future comments regarding improvement (if you go to “community activity” you can favorite this to save your fitness scores in your profile area.)

Remember to always complete the warm-up before starting the workout of the week or Baseline Test.

Baseline Test

Workout Anywhere’s baseline test will only take three minutes to complete.  Beginners, intermediate and advanced level members should all complete this test.  However, there are variations that should be followed if you are not ready for the advanced movement.

All you need is a watch or a timer to complete this three minute workout.  Time yourself for a minute on these three exercises.  Record your variation of the movement and the number of repetitions.  The plank will be the only exercise that you are not counting repetitions on.  Simply time your plank and record if you were able to hold for the entire minute with proper form, or if you can hold it longer, keep going.  🙂

Before performing the Baseline Test, please review our proper exercise form video (it’s short):


Baseline Test

All exercises must be completed with great form for reps to count.

  • 1.  Push-ups or Knee Push Ups (if you know you’re a beginner) (One Minute)
  • 2. Squats or Chair Squats (if you know you’re a beginner) (One Minute)
  • 3. Plank (or planks from your knees if you’re a beginner) (Hold as long as possible!)
  • 4. For Advanced Only: Mile run for time

Post your scores below and then try the baseline next month to track your progress. Please comment in your group too.
