April Health Questionnaire

Each month I like to post a Health Questionnaire to test your knowledge of health and fitness questions.  These questions are not meant to show how much you do NOT know, but rather help better educate you.  There are questions that touch on fitness, nutrition, and health in general.

Please take the quiz and post your answers in the "Comments" section below the post.  Thanks and good luck.
