My trip last week to NYC was to see how physically fit I really am. I got to meet with Joe Dowdell who is one of the most sought after trainers in the world. He has an amazing facility in the city and I am so lucky to have been able to be a guest. I am happy with the fit results!
As far as the body composition results, I knew what I should be expecting and was not pleasantly surprised. Find out what I got over at CrushingTheCourse.com. It just goes to show, it’s 80% diet when it comes to your weight! I always eat a healthful diet, but I do love my sweet treats and cocktails! I know when I overdo it but I also know that when I reach that 10 lb max I allow myself to fluctuate, I can lose it.
Here are the results from my fitness tests:
Out of a possible 21 points, you scored an 18 on the movement screen. This is outstanding! You are incredibly flexible and well-balanced. A score this high puts you at a very low risk of injury while training, and she should have no trouble performing intense exercise. For you, the warmup should focus on raisingyour core temperature and priming her nervous system for the workout.
Your iMett score was also fantastic! She scored “Good” on the test, and did about 40% better than the software predicted she would based on your age.Your body uses oxygen very well, which means you can do a lot of cardio before becoming winded or tired. You also were very good at recovering from exercise. Your heart rate dropped 65 beats—from 178 down to 113—in just two minutes. The faster someone returns to their resting heart rate after exercise, the better that person’s cardiovascular fitness is. You recover from exercise better than most people!
