"What's Your Fitness Level?"
copyright 2003 by Greg Landry, M.S.

Here's a quick and easy way to estimate your fitness level. This was developed by Kasari and is gives you a fitness score that is indicative of aerobic fitness.

Calculate your fitness score by multiplying your score for each category (score = intensity x duration x frequency). For example if you walked at a moderately heavy intensity for 40 minutes, five days per week, you would multiply 3 x 4 x 4. Your fitness score would be 48 and your fitness level would be "fair."

SCORE ACTIVITY Intensity 5 Sustained heavy breathing and perspiration 4 Intermittent heavy breathing and perspiration 3 Moderately heavy 2 Moderate 1 Light (slow, easy walking) Duration 4 Over 30 minutes 3 20 to 30 minutes 2 10 to 20 minutes 1 Under 10 minutes Frequency 5 Daily or almost daily 4 3 to 5 times per week 3 1 to 2 times per week 2 A few times per month 1 Less than once per month

SCORE FITNESS LEVEL 80 to 100 High 60 to 79 Very good 40 to 59 Fair 20 to 39 Poor Under 20 Very Poor

If your score is where you'd like it to be, great, keep up the good work. If your fitness level is not where you'd like it to be, get movin'!
