The fitness age of crossfitters

Last week we measured maximal oxygen uptake in several crossfit athletes at Crossfit Bondi. Below you can read about how their age corresponded with their fitness age.

See video and pictures from the tests in this post: How fit are crossfitters?

Crossfit Bondi Testing

 

Cross fit is a workout method using a combination og endurance and strength exercise training, implementing the interval exercise principle quite a bit during training. During the Bondi Fitness Festival Professor Ulrik Wisløff presented the results from the maximal oxygen uptake testing at Bondi Corssfit, together with a presentation of our main reserach focus and results, in addition to a demonstration of high intensity interval training performed by the two Crossfit Bondi members, Carlo and Cora.

The men at Crossfit Bondi had an average maximal oxygen uptake of 50 mL/kg/min, and with a mean biological age of  33 years old, their fitness age corresponded to 24 years of age.

The women at Crossfit Bondi had an average maximal oxygen uptake of 50 mL/kg/min as well, and with a mean biological age of  35, their fitness age corresponded to 18 years of age, making them relative more fit than the men tested.
