Our Development

After consulting with leading dieticians, doctors, sports trainers, physiotherapists, gyms, and over 100 personal trainers Health and Fitness Testing NZ was finally developed in 2016.

Our mission is to provide you with accurate, reliable and safe health and fitness testing to enable you to assess risk, track progress, and make informed decisions regarding your health, training, and recovery practices.

We believe that everyone deserves access to high quality health and fitness testing. 

Our vision is to be the leader in health and fitness testing in NZ.

Quality Assurance

All testing technicians have undertaken rigorous training to ensure your tests will be safe, accurate, and reliable. For example, our skinfold testing technicians have all completed the prestigious International Society for the Advancement of Kinanthropometry(ISAK) level 1 course. All cholesterol and diabetes testing technicians have completed the Roche Point of Care Training Program. Our DEXA body scans will all be administered by a qualified Radiographer and the reporting will be completed by a Radiologist. 

The equipment provider for our cholesterol, diabetes, and blood pressure testing equipment was recommended by the Point of Care Testing NZ Advisory Group. Our analyser machine, as well as our blood pressure cuffs and Fit3D body scanner are all calibrated regularly.

It should be made clear that all tests, particularly cholesterol, HbA1c, lung function, and blood pressure performed by Health and Fitness Testing NZ should not be interpreted in isolation. The results should be interpreted in conjunction with a full medical history and signs and symptoms. Health and Fitness Testing NZ provide reports for educational/informative reasons only. We do not diagnose medical conditions. When required, we will refer people to their healthcare provider (e.g. GP) for further assessment and interpretation of results.

If you would like more specific information on our quality assurance practices please email peter@healthandfitnesstesting.nz

Our technology

Finally, you can have access to high quality health and fitness testing equipment that was previously reserved for professional athletes or those who already had serious medical conditions. The equipment used in our testing has an overall value higher than $100,000. Sourced from around the globe, our equipment is safe, accurate, and reliable and for your convenience, our labs are mobile.

In a New Zealand First, we have also developed a data platform that will enable you to visualise your progress, have complete 24/7 access your results, and ultimately enhance your journey to better health and fitness.

 

 

 

About the director 

Peter Halstead

    • Master of Physiotherapy
    • Post Graduate Diploma in Sports Medicine
    • Bachelor of Sport and Exercise

Having been born and raised in Wellington, Peter has worked in the health and fitness industry for the last 15 years. His working career has included running his own personal training business, working as a sports trainer for semi-pro sports teams, and working as physiotherapist in private clinics/hospitals. In addition to 3 university qualifications, he has undertaken additional study in health/blood testing and small business management.

A word from Peter himself:

Providing 30-minutes of unsuccessful CPR to a 49-year-old father of 2 in 2013 was a real wake-up call for me. Seeing the reactions of family members when the Paramedic announced their husband/father was dead is a vivid memory that will stick with me forever. No-one should have to lose a family member so young, particularly to a disease that is preventable.

This event made me think about what I could do help New Zealanders avoid being in this situation. It's quite depressing when the research concludes that the number of overweight New Zealanders that live in this 'active' country has risen to over 60% of the NZ population. With obesity comes many other PREVENTABLE health problems, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and lung disease. Many of these preventable problems slowly start to chip away at you from your 20's onwards.

Yes, I have developed this company to give people multiple ways to visually track their progress throughout their health and fitness journey. This is a powerful tool and better than any other on the market. However, what would really satisfy me would be knowing that Health and Fitness Testing NZ have prevented New Zealanders from needing to take pills, inject themselves with medication, or suffer the trauma of seeing a familiy member die infront of them years before they should.

I am proud of what Health and Fitness Testing NZ has developed thus far and look forward to assisting people on their road to better health in the coming years.
