Change Your ‘Fitness Age’ in 5 Easy Steps
Using a special calculator created by researchers at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim, you can estimate how your body actually functions physically in relation to how it should work on average according to your age, said the researchers in a paper published in the journal Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise. The online tool determines your fitness age by measuring V02 max (peak oxygen uptake), which shows how well your body uses oxygen. The study evaluated the V02 max of nearly 5,000 people between 20 and 90 to discover how their real age compared with their athletic endurance. More on Yahoo: The Amazing Body: Your Body Can Do Amazing Things For the mathematics behind a fitness age, an algorithm is calculated by plugging in the frequency, duration, and intensity of a typical exercise, along with your age, gender, waistline (in centimeters), and resting pulse. As an example, a 40-year-old man who exercises two to three times a week for less than 30 minutes with little hard breathing and sweating, and has a waistline of 33 inches and a resting pulse of 65, has a fitness age of 36. While a fitness age close to your actual age is usually expected, the number doesnt paint the whole picture.

POP: Fitting fitness in this fall: Cold weather no longer an excuse
Achieving things are usually more fun with your friends rather than by yourself. Group fitness classes are an option for exercise, Bielawski said, but not all students like to be cooped up in the gym. Many people get bored of just going to the gym, so maybe find a club or an activity group that does something youre interested in, he said. He gave examples, such as running, swimming or hiking. Despite the number of workout options, both Deweese and Bielawski agree, the more realistic the fitness goal, the easier it will be to reach. This time of year, youre going to lose momentum, youre going to lose ground, but you have to stay focused and create realistic behavioral goals, Deweese said. Think more about maintaining a healthier lifestyle rather than worrying about the number on the scale or how many inches you need to lose off your waist. Part of that healthy lifestyle includes a healthy diet.
