You might exercise most days of the week, and eat healthily 90% of the time, but are you as fit as you think you are your birth certificate? It turns out that most people over-estimate their fitness levels, especially when meeting with a personal trainer for the first time. We found this great post on Women’s Health which details 6 quick fitness challenges to test how fit you are. You might be interested to see how well you do! A word of warning: the test is designed to be challenging, so if you don’t score as well as you think you should, don’t panic, and don’t let it deter you from your current exercise routine. If anything, it should motivate you to spice things up and try more intense workouts.
