So I got a 2/5. I have run track since 7th grade (ran in college) and workout 6 days a week for 1 1/2-2 hours (i'm a gym rat). So I might not have known these questions...but I can guarantee that I am fit! (focusing on doing fitness competitions!)

I know stuff about fitness but when it comes to the random machines...that's not my style. Ask me questions about how to use the stationary bike or walk the track and I'm all over it!

No if you want a firm butt than SQUAT! Deadlift, squat lift heavy that will firm. And running sprints and hills.

Jogging on the treadmill will make you lose your booty, if you want to firm it and shape it go with the elliptical.

Wow, question 3 sure was hard ... considering you can read the name on the side of the machine.

lolababy575 - Walking down stairs / downhill offers unique health benefits when compared to walking up stairs or up a hill. Going down stairs reduces blood sugar levels which can reduce your risk for developing type 2 diabetes. So don't write off walking down stairs. Hill82879 - I wrote this in the intro to the quiz: "If you answer all these questions correctly, it doesn't necessarily mean you are fit. But it does mean you have the knowledge to get there." So I agree, knowing jargon doesn't mean you're fit. Regardless if you know these things or not, hopefully you're inspired to put your knowledge to use and get up and get moving.

I thought the stairstepper would really work the glutes. I guess the treadmill makes a lot of sense especially if you use incline.

Can anyone explain the walking up/down and blood sugar correlation and why it's so important? That was the most confusing question on the quiz!
Hill82879 Hill82879 9 years
Sorry, but this quiz is absurd. There are a lot of different types of fitness, and I think it is kind of demoralizing to imply that someone who can't answer some random jargon questions isn't as "fit" as someone who can.

Apparently I don't know anything haha I really feel my butt when I'm on the stair machine. But I feel it jogging too so who knows
