I know, taboo question to some, but how old are you? Ok, now how old are you really. What I mean is, does the condition of your body reflect your age? Is your body functioning at a level below your actual age or is it older than you think?
Thankfully, we do not have to speculate about this. A team of researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology figured out a way to calculate your fitness age.
The calculator can be found here:
You will need:
-your maximum heart rate (calculator available on the website)
-how often you exercise
-how long do you exercise
-how hard do you exercise
-resting pulse (beats per minute, best taken in the morning)
and ta da! They will calculate your fitness age. Easy peasy! Give it a try and leave a comment with your actual age and your fitness age 🙂
