Lifetime Fitness and Wellness

I created this quiz to help me study for my final exam for my Lifetime Fitness and Wellness quiz. It's a fifty question test so I was only able to include part of the material on this quiz. Since the questions on this quiz came specifically from the material covered in lecture, it will most likely seem very random and many people may be unfamiliar with the topics covered. I'm really hoping no one will want to take this test.

Once again this test was created for the sole purpose of helping me study for my final exam. When I created it I had no idea that it would be available for anyone to take. This quiz was not intended for anyone else so please don't take it!
