Test your fitness

FREE fitness tests will be offered at 63 inspection stations on February 16 to check if residents are exercising enough to keep healthy, Shanghai Sports Bureau said today.

As well as height and weight, officials will also test people's body composition, bone density, and muscular strength to measure their strength, agility and endurance.

Experts would then give them advice on daily exercises to improve their fitness, said Li Weiting, bureau deputy director.

To encourage people to exercise, the city's 246 stadiums and gyms, together with 600 school playgrounds, will stay open for games and lessons during the coming Spring Festival.
