I guess it's kind of hard to properly gauge everyone's athleticism, but how athletic do you consider yourself?

My friend claims that most men in England can't do a single pull-up, so on that basis, I must be a little above average.. :)
My cardio sucks though :|

I can run fast, jump high, and lift up heavy things and put them back down.

Just kidding. I'm probably a bit below average.

I did manage to do 80 sit ups in 4 minutes when I was 13. They were small sit ups, but still, my stomach was pretty much destroyed. I can still get 60, but it takes even more effort.

I have no idea what a beep test is, but it sounds like it might be sadistic! :D

Working on getting more athletic; last time I went biking I did a 19.5km ride where about half of it was steady uphill. A few weeks ago I could do maybe half that so I'm making progress; I recover faster now, anyway! I record my rides on the gps and load them into google earth for puppy's and giggles. I like reviewing the route and seeing the elevation profile. It's entertaining because It's strangely entertaining playing back the route and watching the little arrow trod along.

As far as fitness is concerned, I would say 'average'. I jog six miles every morning, then do 50 push-ups. That's pretty much the extent of my fitness routine.

If you factor the average population, it's definitely above average. Just about anyone else huff and puffs when they do physical tasks with me.

Compared to other athletes I'm a teeny tiny bit above average

Compared to every other wimpy 17-21 year old on the planet I'm god

If we are talking endurance type tests like running miles or something like that then I would do poorly as I'm out of cardio shape. If we're talking about jumping over a fence while using a close by wall to push off with your legs I could do stuff like that.
