How to Choose the Right Activity Level in Polar Fitness Test

Activity level is an assessment of your level of long-term physical activity. Select the alternative that best describes the overall amount and intensity of your physical activity during the past three months.



 

  • Top: You participate in heavy physical exercise at least 5 times a week, or you exercise to improve performance for competitive purposes.

  • High: You participate at least 3 times a week in heavy physical exercise, e.g. you run 10-40 km/6-25 miles or you cycle 2-4 hours (40-120 km/ 25-75 miles) per week or spend that time in comparable physical activity.

  • Moderate: You participate regularly in recreational sports, e.g. you run 5-10 km or 3-6 miles or you cycle 1/2-2 hours (15-40 km/ 3-25 miles) per week or spend that time in comparable physical activity, or your work requires modest physical activity.

  • Low: You do not participate regularly in recreational sport or heavy physical activity, e.g. you walk only for pleasure or exercise hard enough to cause heavy breathing or perspiration only occasionally.
