RealAge Test


Have you taken the RealAge Test?

I took it five years ago, when one of the Kuwait bloggers published the link and we all tried it to see how we measured up. I was shocked to learn that because I was not exercising enough, nor seeing a doctor regularly, I was actually OLDER than my age. It shocked me enough to see a doctor and take her advice.

Today I took it, and now, with regular exercise, I came out eight years younger than my age, and younger than I was the first time I took the test, Woooo HOOOOO!

The test has changed, but only updated by the newest findings. It now measures social factors, like how many people you are close to, how many you help, etc. You learn a lot about what is important just by taking the test.

I challenge you. Take the test, and tell me how you did.

  1. Ouch! My RealAge is two years older than my calendar age. ….which is actually good news, because lately I’m feeling positively ancient. Oy vey!

  3. The test was very inaccurate. I am 42 and in the best shap of my life and they said my real age is 51 which is complete bull. I am the most active and in best shape 42 year old I know. I feel like im 21 with tons of energy and my stamina is better than most 30 year olds. There is no way they can determine this eith those questions.
