The YMCA, of which I'm a brand new member, just telephoned me to today to tell me that I WON A PRIZE! Woo, I'm thinking! A custom-installed 50m lap pool? A new treadmill? A leftover sweatshirt?
Nope. A "fitness assessment".
Is it just the natural skeptic in me that tends to believe that everyone who signed in at their open house on Saturday got a phone call that they WON BIG and got a fitness assessment?
I'm reasonably certain that it doesn't include a VO2max measurement or underwater weighing or a blood lipids profile, and might possibly involve those humiliating body fat calipers, and would most likely focus on a tour of their weight machines, so I think I'm probably going to skip it. I think my usual mile repeats around the track and 200m swim times tell me just how fit (or unfit) I am right now.
