Your fitness age

by Marauder   November 5, 2013  

Found this website which might be of some use peeps.
Website that apparently calculates your fitness age.

http://www.ntnu.edu/cerg/vo2max

Not all that interesting really but it is good to know if it is accurate that is.

Me:41
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.

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

52

and your estimated "fitness age" is

29 (My actual age)....Doubtful. I feel around 90 Devil

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?

Foolishness.

Between the S and the LOW

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.

AWESOME - "under 20" apparently, I'm actually 26.

Not very scientific, but screw it, I'm having that. Big Grin
