You know your age, but do you know your "FitnessAge"?

What Is FitnessAge?
FitnessAge is a breakthrough fitness assessment program that inspires and motivates real change. FitnessAge provides a fun and easy to understand fitness assessment experience.

Age vs FitnessAge
A 42 year old can have a FitnessAge of 64 or 24, depending on how well they have looked after themselves. For example, if a 42 year old had neglected their health and fitness and their FitnessAge is 64, this means they are physically performing at the same level as the average 64 year old. On the flip side, an older individual who is health conscious could maintain the physical condition of a much younger person.

Ever wondered whether you’re ageing faster or slower than you should be? After reaching the age of 21, your chronological age has very little meaning or relevance when compared to the physical condition of your body and overall health. Ageing doesn’t happen with just the rising and setting of the sun, but rather is heavily influenced by how you treat your body.

The Motivation You’ve Been Looking For
No fitness program can get off the ground without motivation. Typically, the catalyst that causes people to change their habits and take fitness seriously is something personal. FitnessAge operates in a similar way. When you discover your FitnessAge, these instantly understood results act as an impetus for lasting health improvements.

What Are The Tests?
Experts all agree that fitness is more than just muscles or cardio.
Fitness is comprised of four key categories, all of which are tested by FitnessAge.
BODY — Body Fat %, Weight, and Body Measurements
CARDIO —Resting Pulse and Recovery Pulse (3-minute step test)
FLEXIBILITY — Sit and Reach (touch your toes)
STRENGTH —Sit-ups (1 minute) and Push-ups (until fatigue)

The tests used in FitnessAge are all industry standard tests that are also used by the world’s leading authorities on exercise physiology.

How Your FitnessAge is Calculated
The patented FitnessAge software takes your test scores and then matches them to a national database of scores. From this, we are able to determine your FitnessAge which is comprised of your BodyAge, CardioAge, FlexAge & StrengthAge.

How Long Does It Take?
Your FitnessAge assessment is conducted as part of a group session and takes roughly 30 minutes.

Online Access, Tracking & Programming after your assessment.
Once your assessment is complete, you can access your results online at anytime and track your improvement.

In addition to this our trainers will through discussion with you and your results tailor your Feel Good Fitness program to ensure that you are working towards improving these results when you are next tested.

The initial fitness testing session will be used to give you an indication of what your fitness age is at the start of your programme, so that future testing can be compared to this and improvements or changes can be noted. Your results will help build specific and measurable goals, with your trainer making your programme as individual as possible.
