What is Your Fitness Level?

Angels Camp, CA...Determining your health and fitness depends on five things, body composition, muscular strength, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility and muscular power. Using numbers like BMI, or the body mass index alone, only takes into account a person’s height and weight. It’s possible to have low body fat and high muscle mass, and therefore a higher weight, which could categorize someone as overweight or obese when that’s really not the case. It’s better to look at the five elements and think about both health and fitness, rather than simply rely on your BMI or the number on your scale....




Joy Winchester, HFS, from the Take Charge Fitness Program, a wellness facility in Clinton, Tennessee recommends using a site like www.sparkpeople.com to test your fitness. The website has a variety of challenges that can be done at home to test your endurance, including one-minute push-up and crunch tests, a three-minute step test and a one-mile walk test. Each of the tests is simple to execute and requires little more than a stopwatch for timing, and maybe a friend to help keep count (or to keep you honest!). The site charts results by age and gender, ranging from “very poor” to “excellent,” giving you an idea of how your endurance ranks against others your own age.

If you’re serious about improving your fitness, or if your doctor has encouraged you to do so, you may want to consider consulting with a physical therapist. Fitness consults are available at Pinnacle Physical Therapy and consist of measuring such areas as range of motion, balance and flexibility, strength, and medical history. By the end of the assessment, the physical therapist can create an exercise program tailored to that person’s specific health and fitness needs and goals. At that point, the patient may decide to proceed on their own at home or initiate one of the self-directed exercise programs offered at Pinnacle.

Another tip, supported by research studies, is to keep track of your eating and exercise to help you stay on track. If you’re trying to lose weight, set a goal range, not a number; it’s been shown that people feel more capable and are more successful in reaching a range rather than a single number. And try not to obsess about your scale! While it’s good to know how much you weigh, it’s only one part of your health and fitness equation. Weigh yourself weekly, at the same time of the day, to know if you’re trending down (or up!), rather than obsessing about that dream weight.
