The FITNESSGRAM youth fitness program has provided schools with powerful tools to evaluate and promote physical fitness in youth. The evaluation of state and national data from FITNESSGRAM has also provided unique insights about health related fitness surveillance and school based physical activity programming. The presentation will summarize approaches and methods used to refine the criterion referenced fitness standards in Fitnessgram and the application of these standards to advance public health research on youth fitness. The presentation will also summarize insights on school physical activity programming gained through the evaluation of the NFL PLAY 60 FITNESSGRAM Partnership Project, a large participatory research network of over 1000 schools
