Canadian Fitness Awards

This was a program from the 1980's that we were forced to go through in school.

Yes, forced!  It was really awful for a lot of us, very discouraging... while for others I'm sure it was very encouraging!  It convinced me forever that I couldn't do push-ups (and until a personal trainer helped me figure them out, I couldn't!).

At the end you got one of 4 badges - Excellence, Gold, Silver, Bronze.

I have some somewhere, Bronze and Silver.  Could never lick the full thing.

I feel like I have unfinished business.

Thankfully someone posted the tests on-line!  PDF document is here.

I want to do everything at the 18-year-old level (the highest).  This was meant to test kids, but at 18 they're pretty much adults, right?  Voting and drinking and stuff!

Here are the standards for 18 year old males:
Canada Fitness Test - 18 year old male
I'm going to set a baseline in the next few weeks (once I'm over this GD cold!) and then do it again in the summer.  Hoping I can get to Excellence!  It's going to be tough tough tough.

The Badges were awarded as follows:
Excellence - must achieve Excellence in all 6 disciplines!
Gold - Gold or higher in 5 (must include 2400m)
Silver - Silver or higher in 4 (must include 2400m)
Bronze - Bronze or higher in 4 (must include 2400m)

I'm pretty confident I can get to silver level in at least a few of these... we'll see though!
