Are you someone who works out regularly and wonders how well you rank against others in your age group? Having a fitness assessment done by a medically based fitness program can show you exactly where you stand and in what areas of fitness you could improve.
Recently, I had the opportunity of visiting my former place of work M-Healthy (formerly MFit) to find out how I measured up against others in my age group. The assessment took place at the Ann Arbor Ice Cube and was conducted by my former boss Eric and one of his new trainers John. During the assessment Eric and John conducted the following tests:
- Height & Weight
- Blood pressure & Resting heart rate
- Girth Measurements
- Skin folds (Body Fat)
- Upper & Lower Body Flexibility Tests
- Upper & Lower Body Strength Tests
- SubMax VO2 test
It took about 1 1/2 hours to complete the testing and review the results. Eric and John did a great job and I personally feel Eric is one of the most knowledgable and educated personal trainers in the Ann Arbor area. If you are interested in exercise science, research and data, Eric is the “go-to” guy. Personally, I found the testing and results both helpful and fun! It’s a great way to get a baseline if you are just starting an exercise program. Learn more about the M-Healthy fitness assessment by visiting their website today!
