WEIGHT LOSS POLL
The poll question was 'What is the most effective method for weight loss?'. This is a reasonable question to ask. The poll answer choices were a little bit tongue in cheek, though it certainly made a few people think about this topic. The choices were: exercise, dieting, amputation, liposuction, and dehydration. Some of these could be considered quite effective, though not always practical. Probably the most correct answer, which was not even an option, is a sensible combination of both dieting and exercise. Based on votes, the clear winner of the poll was exercise. Fortunately many saw the humour in the question and answered the most correct answer to the most effective way of reducing body weight fast - amputation.

Since you last visited this site, there most likely has been several changes. The changes are made on a irregular basis, as this site is just a hobby of mine. If you are doing a search for fitness testing, you may notice that many search engines are still pointing to the old URL of this site.
SPORT SPECIFIC TESTING
To complement my list of fitness tests, I have compiled and added
some discussion about the appropriate tests to be performed for specific sports. I have recently added the sport of Soccer (football)
to Golf, Tenpin Bowling, Field Hockey, Tennis. See the list here.
Thank you for your support of my site.
