Whether you’re an exercise fanatic keen to know if your effort is paying off, or someone with a nagging feeling their fitness is holding them back, working out how fit you really are can be tough. The new Fitness Level feature in Firstbeat Lifestyle Assessment makes it possible.
Traditionally, fitness testing requires maximal effort in laboratory conditions. Now, people of all levels – from gym regulars to those who struggle to exercise regularly – can get an accurate estimate of their fitness level as part of the three-day Firstbeat Lifestyle Assessment measurement. All you need to do is to walk for 30 minutes at a moderate-brisk pace. It really is a walk in the park.
Why is a fitness test worthwhile?
When it comes to fitness, knowledge is power. And knowing your Fitness Level can benefit everyone. Good fitness is an essential component of comprehensive well-being. Improved performance, functional capacity, general health, longevity, recovery, and reduced health care costs are just some of the benefits associated with even subtle improvements in fitness. Plus, fitter people have also been shown to experience less stress.
Bad fitness doesn’t necessarily mean bad news
Even if your personal result isn’t what you hoped for, it’s never too late to develop your fitness. In fact, those with poor fitness can see the quickest results from the smallest increase in exercise. Results have shown that, with three months’ training, it is possible to increase fitness by up to 20-percent.
Because Fitness Level lets you track the progress you’re making it not only opens your eyes to your current situation but inspires you towards a more active and healthy lifestyle.
How Fitness Level benefits individuals, businesses and wellness professionals
Fitness Level is an easy and concrete way to track your fitness development as part of Firstbeat Lifestyle Assessment.
