The Illinois agility test is a fitness test designed to test one's sport agility[1]. It is a simple test which is easy to administer and requires little equipment. It tests the ability to turn in different directions and at different angles.

The aim of the test is to complete a weaving running course in the shortest possible time.[2] Cones mark the course; the subject starts face down, with the head to the start line, and hands by the shoulders. At the whistle, the subject runs the course, without knocking down any cones.

The course can be measured out either in meters or feet 10 m long by 5 m wide or 30 ft (approx 9.14 m) by 15 ft (approx 4.53 m)
