Today I had a fitness Test with the personal trainer who I worked with for Kilimanjaro and who introduced me to the Ki Fit.
I cannot afford to have regular personal training sessions so I have decided to monitor my progress by having fitness tests every 3 months.
During the test I did the following:
- Blood Pressure
- Body Fat
- Reach Test
- Hamstring Flexibility
- Push Ups
- Leg Strength
- Step Test
- Walk Mile
Apart from putting on weight my fitness levels are around what I was when I started personal training in 2010. So although I am frustrated I have lost my fitness I know I have not gone completely back to the start of my journey. I now also have data to support my new journey to get back to my best or better fitness levels.
I now have a general fitness goal. I need to work on my aerobic and strength fitness in order to be able to improve on the test above. This means I can keep varying my exercise in order to not get bored.
My overall goal is still my swimming, but I can complement that with other fitness 🙂
