My Pre-Training Fitness Profile

Before I could begin on my sags-to-riches journey, my gym required me to complete a fitness profile and nutritional evaluation to help me determine my goals and make sure I knew what a vegetable was.

For posterity and future comparison, here is my fitness profile.

Nick the Trainer seemed to whip through some of these measurements pretty quickly. I’m taking their accuracy with a grain of low-sodium salt
