Building a Better You

Building on a fitness and training theme, I thought some of you would be interested in knowing just where you stand -- so to speak. Here are two health challenges that will help you identify your strengths and weaknesses. Once you know what you need to work on, both provide you with the exercises and inspiration to move ahead

The President's Challenge: (Less adventurous) Reminiscent of junior high school, the President's Challenge tests aerobic ability, strength & endurance, flexibility, and body composition. You can enter all your test data online and receive instant fitness scores along with tips for improving

Outside Magazine's Fitness Challenge: (More adventurous) The magazine helps you determine your levels of core stability, long-range power, strength, rest & nutrition. Take their tests then follow their exercise suggestions to become the woman you always knew you could be. Your challenge begins on page 52 of the July issue.

Just discovered your blog and am reading through it. I love adventure. I will walk the Camino de Santiago for the first time in September at 62 years young.
Thanks for sharing your adventures. I will keep reading.
