Vitality Fitness Assessment

DISCOVERY VITALITY FITNESS ASSESSMENT

This 45 minute assessment was designed by Discovery Vitality to give you an accurate and personalised understanding of your fitness.

HOW MANY VITALITY POINTS CAN I EARN?

By completing the VFA you can earn 2500 base points and an additional 1000 - 5000 bonus points depending on your fitness level. The points you earn from your Vitality Fitness Assessment contribute towards your yearly cap of 30 000 fitness points.

HOW DO I EARN MORE POINTS?

Your biokineticist can assist you with identifying the areas that need improvement and prescribe appropriate exercise intervention. If you scored full points (7500) for your first VFA assessment, no further VFA tests are necessary for the year. If however your results are lower than 7500 points, you then have the option to repeat the assessment again a minimum of 90 days later. This allows sufficient time for you to implement a strength, stretch or cardiovascular fitness program geared towards improving your results. Please note that you will only receive the balance of the points if you score higher in your second test.

RATE 

R507.20 (upfront payment)

If you are on a Medical Scheme plan that covers the cost, you can claim this amount back from your day-to day benefits, if you have sufficient funds available.
