Aim of the study was to classify the physical fitness of a person without exercise tests but by means of dynamic biosignals. Our focus was to develop a hardware set to measure a single-channel electrocardiogram (ECG) and the bioimpedance comfortably and under non-laboratory conditions. The measured bioimpedance leads to the body-fatmass (BFM). Based on the BFM, RR-interval out of the ECG and the calculated body mass index (BMI) the fitness level could be determined. To carry out the fitness classification a set of data has been recorded. To validate the classification the tested persons were asked in a questionnaire about their weekly sporting activity and other statements that are pointing to an objective fitness level.
