Vitality Fitness Assessment Results

It is a maximal test which means you stop when you feel you physically cannot continue. It is only recommended for people who are experienced in exercising at extreme intensities.

Anyone can participate in the Vitality Fitness Assessment. This assessment is designed to give you a personalised understanding of how fit you are.

If your details are recorded immediately after you complete the Vitality Fitness Assessment, your points will show on your Vitality Points Monitor within 72 hours. It can sometimes take about one week for the biokineticist to send us the details so your points may take longer to reflect.

Vitality Health Check Results

You can complete a Vitality Health Check at any Clicks, Dis-Chem, Pick n Pay pharmacy or independent pharmacy in the Vitality Wellness Network, at a Vitality Wellness Centre, at a Discovery Wellness Day or at your nearest Discovery Store.

Once you complete a Vitality Health Check at a recognised facility, your results are submitted automatically. Please allow 7 days for your points to reflect.

If you complete your health checks at a GP or other authentic test facilities we need you to send us your official results by submitting your results on the Claim Vitality Points page. Please allow 48 hours for processing, you can then check that these points have been awarded on your Vitality Points Monitor.

The Vitality Health Check is made up of five measures: blood pressure, blood glucose, cholesterol, a weight assessment (which includes weight, height and waist circumference) and signing a non-smoker’s declaration. You can earn up to 22 500 Vitality points depending on how many results are in range. This means that at a Discovery Wellness Day, you can earn up to 30 000 points and reach Silver Vitality status by having all your results in range, finding out your Vitality Age and doing an HIV test. From 1 May 2019, members will only be awarded additional Vitality points if their tests are performed at least 90 days apart.
