Are you fit for your age? by Taylor Lee

Okay.  I admit I’m a fitness freak. So, it’s a given that I get hooked on all the health articles bombarding us on how to know if we are fit (whatever that means….) or if we’re hopelessly out of shape. This year, everywhere I looked were articles upon articles encouraging us to focus on fitness. Or maybe just to make us feel inferior.

As I previously noted, I’m a fitness aficionado. So, of course, I was intrigued by this article in the Washington Post. Rather than just telling us what we need to do to get fit it actually tested us. And best of all it made clear that the definition of “fitness” changes as we age. (Phew!)

Here’s a link to the full article and I encourage you to read it. Because I go to the gym every day and do a minimum of 8-10 miles a day on the recumbent bike, I knew I could ace the endurance tests. But, dear God, I discovered I could not stand on one leg and balance for thirty seconds. Humbling….and I quickly learned that my grip strength is woefully inadequate.

I encourage you to take this test. It is beautifully organized.  It tests where you are and then shows you how to improve. And everything is judged according to your age.  Go for it!  I wish you well. Onward and upward!

And then if you want to check out some snazzy women and equally snazzy guys, have a look at one of my favorite series. In addition to taking on the on the baddest of the bad, these women (…and men) are hard core😊
