AIA Vitality Age Assessment
Take the first step towards knowing your health - discover your AIA Vitality Age.
How are your lifestyle choices ageing you?
The AIA Vitality Age Assessment is an online assessment based on your risk factors and lifestyle behaviours. It takes approximately 20 minutes to complete.
There are four sections: About You, Physical Activity, Nutrition and Mental Wellbeing. You earn 750 AIA Vitality Points for each section you complete.
It is important to remember that each section is equally weighted and contributes to determining your AIA Vitality Age. Once you have completed each section, you'll discover your AIA Vitality Age, which could be higher, lower or equal to your actual age. This may give you an indication of your overall health. You'll receive feedback on your results that you may choose to discuss further with your GP.
Click on each assessment below and remember, the more honest you are with your answers, the more accurate our feedback will be.
Alcohol and tobacco: The AIA Vitality Age Assessment contains questions about alcohol and tobacco usage. The sale of alcohol and tobacco products to anyone aged under 18 years of age is illegal in New Zealand.
If pregnant, please speak to your healthcare provider about healthy weight gain and monitoring your health measures. BMI and waist circumference as health measures do not apply during pregnancy.
Body Mass Index (BMI) is calculated using only your weight and height which means that sometimes it may give an inaccurate indication of body composition (e.g. body builders), where body fat percentage or waist circumference measure may be more accurate. As a screening tool, BMI is a widely accepted, reliable indicator of a person's weight status for the majority of the population.
Other measures taken during any other AIA Vitality screening may affect your AIA Vitality Age, and the overall evaluation of your health status; including the feedback you are given.
No - we'll ask you questions about your lifestyle and behaviours and how you're generally feeling. This includes diet and physical activity levels, and your mental wellbeing. We will also ask for your clinical measures for blood glucose (sugar), blood pressure, cholesterol and weight. If you don't know your clinical measures, it's okay. Simply indicate that you don't have the answer and upon completion, we will still present you with your report. Please note that you will need to know your waist circumference (in centimetres).
The results of the AIA Vitality Age Assessment are calculated using clinically-based healthy ranges for adults aged 18+ years.
