I would like to know if someone can help me find out what medical tests as well as what values for them would indicate a person is fit.

Reading the October 2002 Crossfit Journal issue I saw a very interesting graphic indicating a continuum from sickness to wellness to fitness, as well as some examples of health values measurables along that line, e.g., body fat : 40 % (pathological), 20 % (normal), 10 % (fit).

Some of them are pretty common (blood pressure, cholesterol), however, for a non-expert like me, knowing what values to aim for means a lot of research to do.

Thanks in advance.

I just saw the trial journal issue is the same that the October 2002, entitled "What is fitness ?".

That may be interesting for people without that specific issue.
