Slovenia boasts a deeply rooted tradition of fitness, outdoorsmanship and physical activity in its population and pursuits.
The SLOfit Students system was established many years before the more recently established Eurofit programme; it has proven to be a valuable resource for teachers, health professionals and researchers alike.
The SLOfit was based on the large-scale physical fitness testing in Slovenia dating from the 1960s and 1970s. The SLOfit testing system (in different name) was first implemented in 1982 on a sample of Slovenian schools, and after 5 years of testing, it was then introduced to all Slovenian primary and secondary schools. Thus, the SLOfit Students programme enables the annual monitoring of physical and motor status of children in all Slovenian schools from 1987 onwards.
