Calculate your fitness age


Physical fitness is key to a long life and good health. Your body’s capacity to transport and use oxygen during exercise (VO2 max) is the most precise measure of overall cardiovascular fitness. Based on the extensive research of The K. G. Jebsen Center of Exercise in Medicine at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, you can easily estimate your fitness level by answering a few questions.


I was surprised this morning when I took my resting heart rate after waking up. The first reading was 49 BPM, that seemed low so I took a couple more readings, the average of which is 51.

Based on that I decided to re-calculate my fitness age which turns out to be 15 years less than my actual age.
