What is the Chester Step Test?
The test is a multistage, aerobic capacity test. It is simple to do and requires only a step, heart rate watch and a calculator to provide results. The Chester Step Test calculator is also available as part of the Chester Step Test Kit, used by the Fire & Rescue service and Police forces worldwide. You can use a variety of step heights as the test accommodates a broad range of ages and abilities. This is the freest aerobic capacity test, as the only equipment needed is the step.
The test is suitable for the less fit because it starts at a gentle 15 steps per minute. This increases five steps per minute, every 2 minutes. The test subject does not have to complete the whole five stages. They only need to complete 3 stages to get accurate results, although in extreme cases 2 stages is enough.
