Test Your Fitness

There are plenty of ways you can track your fitness levels.

Use the links below or contact us to arrange a fitness assessment by one of our experts at Beaton Park or Lakeside Leisure Centre.

These links are a guide only. If you have any questions about your results, talk to a health professional. We recommend you seek medical advice before starting any new fitness program, especially if you have ongoing health issues.

Use your height and weight to estimate your body fat. Your BMI can also be used to gauge your risk for health problems like heart disease, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, gallstones, breathing problems and some cancers.

Note that BMI can be used for most people, but it may:

overestimate body fat in athletes or people with a muscular build

underestimate body fat in older people, or those who have lost muscle.

Go to the Heart Foundation's BMI calculator.
