1. Body Mass Index
A good way of how to gauge your fitness level is to start by finding out exactly what your BMI, or body mass index, is. You can work out your BMI with an equation that takes in to account your height compared to your weight. Though it cannot pin point exactly your personal level of fitness, it can give you an idea as to your overall health and can be a great starting point for putting together an appropriate exercise program. smartbmicalculator.com
