4. Although their overall fitness should be improving, many girls become lee fit after about twelve years of age? Why do you think this happens? Girls may become less fit after the age of twelve because other issues may become more important.

These things may include becoming interested in boys, puberty and school may become harder as children make the change from Primary School to High School.

5. Explain why you think you got the results that you did in your fitness test. For example "At gymnastics I do a lot of stretching which has enabled e to score a positive 6 in the sit and reach activity. Sit and Reach is an activity designed to test flexibility."

However, I could have done better if I had have stretched and prepared better.
