The European Fitness Badge (EFB) is a health- oriented award for a basic, good and very good fitness level. Fitness is determined by motor skill tests of the underlying motor performance abilities (endurance, strength, coordination and flexibility). Additional measurements like body composition and
posture of the participants are included in the EFB.
The EFB was developed on the initiative of the German Gymnastic Federation in cooperation with international partners from 5 countries such as universities and sports associations.
