Hawaii’s Fittest Executives

The Rules

Here are the winners of Hawaii Business’ 2009 Fitness Challenge. The competitors were scored on four measures of fitness:

• Cardio: a three-minute cardiac step test

• Upper-body strength: push-ups

• Core strength: prone ISO-Ab test (“plank test”)

• Agility and flexibility: Speed on an agility course

Trainers at the Honolulu Club tested competitors under the same conditions. The event was open to any owner, manager or supervisor of a Hawaii-based company or nonprofit. We also invited our magazine’s staff to test themselves against Hawaii‘s fittest executives.

There is only one winner in each category; finalists are those competitors whose scores came close to the winners. Those listed under honorable mention also scored highly.

In selecting the overall male and female winners, fitness scores were factored relative to age.

Thank you to all who took part and who tested them, and our apologies to those who wanted to compete but were not tested.

– Steve Petranik
