Whilst a performer is participating in an activity it is possible to gather information about their fitness level. Therefore the methods that are used have to be carried out as the activity takes place. It is important that these methods do not influence or distract the performer in order to make the data as accurate and reliable as possible.
Gathering data within the activity provides general information on a performers fitness level. It begins to highlight general strengths and weaknesses which can then be analysed in a more specific/focussed way, normally out with the activity through standardised tests.
