President's Physical Fitness Test

President's Physical Fitness Test

In preparation for Shaq's Big Challenge season finale tomorrow, I thought it would be fun to join in the fitness games and see how you measure up by taking the, duh duh dum, President's Physical Fitness Test.


You're going to need to time yourself (or have someone else time you). If you don't know how to do any of the moves, download a description here.

The Move The Challenge What the Kids Can Do? (ages 10-17)
Curl-Ups How many did you do in one minute? Girls: 30-35/Boys: 35-45
1-Mile Run/Walk How fast did you do it? Girls: 10-11 mins/Boys: 7-8 mins
Pull-Ups How many did you do in one minute? Girls: 1/Boys: 2-8
Push-Ups How many did you do in one minute? Girls: 10-16/Boys: 14-37
Shuttle Run How fast did you do it? Girls: 11-12 secs/Boys: 9-12 secs
The V-Sit What mark did you reach? Girls: 3-5.5 inches/Boys: 0.5-3 inches

Try it out -- If nothing else you'll get a mini workout in the middle of the day. I got 37 curl-ups, 20 push-ups and 11 seconds for the shuttle run! There's not enough space in here to test my skills at the others, but I am pretty sure I'd be getting an A+ in gym class. So what did you get?
