Giving you the physical and emotional resources to do all the things you need to do

Jul 31, 2015

It’s easy to assume that if you’re overweight, you’re unfit and if you have a healthy body weight or normal Body Mass Index (BMI), you must be fit. This is not always the case because you can be at your ideal body weight and still be unfit.  

Here are a few fitness level indicators:

  • Easily winded or out of breath when exerting yourself
  • You get injured very easily when participating in physical activity
  • You get achy muscles even after a very small amount of physical activity
  • You get stiff joints (a sign that you’re sitting too much)
  • You are weak and can’t carry heavy objects


Note:  you don’t have to have all five symptoms to be considered unfit, but it’s likely if you don’t engage in vigorous exercise for at least 30 minutes, five days a week, you probably are unfit.
