The First Fitness Stats! We'd Be Zombie Fodder!

"Son - you're gonna get ravaged by some flesh eatin', blood drinkin', dead dude if you don't shape up!"
That is the drill sergeant in my head! And there's nothing like survival to give you motivation!
Here's our first vital stats:

Our first fitness results = Zombie Fodder!

Weight: 14.5 stone / 203lbs / 92kilos
Height: 6ft
Waist: 40"
Chest: 42"
Biceps: 14"
Thighs: 22"

Weight: 12 stone 9lbs / 177lbs / 81 kilos
Height: 5ft 10"
Waist: 37"
Hips: 44"
Chest: 41"
Biceps: 12.5"
Thighs: 20"
We devised a sort of fitness test to see how really unfit we are. Obviously, when your belly's giggling up and down whilst you're jogging - and quite frankly, it hurts - it's time to shape up!
We started with jogging on the spot for 1 minute, then push-ups, touching toes, sit-ups, squats, and the vertical jump test. So, here are the results:

PUSH UPS                   Robin 20 - average                      Holly - 6 - below average
JOGGING                    Robin 1min 23 secs to recover     Holly 1min 16 secs to recover
TOUCHING TOES      Robin -1.5 inches off ground        Holly - hands flat on floor
SIT-UPS                       Robin - 18 - poor                        Holly - 31 - above average
SQUATS                      Robin - 33 - excellent                  Holly - 28 - excellent
VERTICAL JUMP       Robin - 111" above average         Holly - 98" - below average

So there we go. I can't jump and I'm aerobically unfit, Robin is also aerobically unfit and needs more work on his abs. This means business! We'll record our fitness level and stats each week and see how we progress. In the meanwhile, lets hope the zombie apocalypse can wait a bit longer - I've got a belly to shift!
