Found this website which might be of some use peeps.
Website that apparently calculates your fitness age.
Not all that interesting really but it is good to know if it is accurate that is.
Fitness age: 29
Age:37 Fitness Age: <20
The Missus bought me one of these sort of sessions and a months 'Core training' at a local sports therapist from Groupon back along.
It was significantly more in depth than the website test and took into account both surface fat and fat around the organs max pulse resting pulse and all of those sorts of things. But the result was the same as the website.
Age 66. Fitness age 49.
Don't know whether to be pleased or not.
Real age > 40
Fitness age < 20.
Age I feel when working hard and some whippet overtakes me on a climb > old.
Age 34 fitness age less than 20
Fitness age 34
Super-scientific! In fact, the university whose site that's on should hang its head in shame. Next time I'll use one of these:
Your VO2MAX is calculated to be
and your estimated "fitness age" is
29 (My actual age)....Doubtful. I feel around 90
I'll take that.
Um so real age 36, my summer age is 28 but have just been commuting recently, getting dark, no time for training, so my winter fitness age is 37. Have I aged nine years in two months?
Real age 47 fitness age 27. Mind you I went to a proper test over the summer which gave a whole load of stats but also had me at 32. So I'm sure I can live with that.
On saying that after tackling the high winds and rain the other day I felt more old and decrepit than young and virile.
I believe they call this the 'ego stroker'!
That's hilarious. I am 26 according to them
AWESOME - "under 20" apparently, I'm actually 26.
Not very scientific, but screw it, I'm having that.
Wow, 32. That was a long time ago.
ha, brilliant. I'm 31. Got a fitness age of 'under 20'. It's not far off a random number generator!
what a load of bolclks - it gave ne a VO2 max of 70!
I'm 57 and it reckoned my fitness age was under 20 - I wish!
