A fitness assessment is far more than a simple validation of your current fitness level. The fitter you are, the healthier you are and the longer you’re likely to live in comparison to less fit individuals.
For this reason, the enhanced Multiply fitness assessment has only included measures which research has shown to be associated with health and longevity. This fitness assessment is backed by research and was developed by the Sports Science Institute of South Africa, and the University of Cape Town, our partners.
A Multiply fitness assessment is an alternative to getting Active Dayz™ - useful for members who live an active lifestyle but are unable to track it.
For only R420 and 30 minutes of your time, you will get your fitness level and expert advice from a health professional. The enhanced fitness assessment results will be valid for 12 months, so now, you only need to complete your fitness assessment once a year.
You pay only R420 for your Multiply fitness assessment.
After your assessment, you’ll earn the following points, depending on the fitness level achieved:
What will be measured?
*if both is done, your best result will be used.
How does it work?
HealthReturns+ are calculated using the results of your Healthy Heart Score, Fitness Assessment Level and your status on Multiply Premier.
For every R600 you contribute to your Momentum Medical Scheme, you will get HealthReturns+ paid into your HealthSaver* account. This applies to the principal member and adult dependant contributions. A principal member who is as active as an adult dependant can get more HealthReturns+ because of the lower contribution that the dependant pays.
What should I wear?
Wear comfortable clothing, like track pants, tights or shorts and running or walking shoes.
Do I need a gym towel?
Take your gym towel.
How will I receive my results?
You will receive comprehensive feedback and an overall fitness level (between 1 – 5) which can be printed and or emailed to you.
May I train on the day of the assessment?
Do not train on the day of the fitness assessments, as it might impact your overall score.
