As a trainer for over a decade, I have been blessed to have had the opportunity to train thousands of people of all ages, shapes and sizes.

I have always assessed my client’s fitness level at the beginning to design the right program for where they are starting at and where they want to be.2

So if you want to just test your own fitness level you want to follow this guide to help you get started.

Just remember to listen to your body and never overdo it.

1. Step Test

The step test is a good place to start a fitness assessment.2

Step up and down on and off a step bench for 2-3 minutes.

During this assessment, record how long you were able to step and use this as a gage of where you are starting at.

This marker will be a thing of the past in a few weeks as you build up your fitness level.
