Analysing lifestyle

I am a 15 year old black male. I weigh about 156.6 lbs and I am about 5.65 feet. I partake in physical activity 3 times a week. I do an hour of physical education once a week and I go to the gym twice a week for about 1- 1.5 hours each. I am looking to test my levels of fitness by doing various tests such as the bleep test to help me measure this.

This would affect my lifestyle as it having good stamina would help me with everyday tasks such as running for the bus or running to school before I am late. It would also help me aerobically as it shows that I have pretty good slow-twitch muscle fibres. It is also an indication if I am more susceptible to cardiovascular diseases such as heart disease or stroke.

A weakness that I found while doing these tests was my speed. This was shown when I did the 30m sprint and got a score of 5. I think this may have due to me not wanted to participate in this test so ...
