What’s Your Fitness Level?




by Greg Landry

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

4
3 to 5 times per week

3

FITNESS LEVEL

80 to 100

60 to 79

40 to 59

20 to 39

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’!
