Many people think of fitness in terms of strength, flexibility and movement (eg.walking, running).
However, there are several components to fitness.
Cardiovascular Endurance - that's walking, running and exercising your heart which increases the oxygen flow to all your muscles.
Muscular Strength and Endurance - the body's ability to move, lift objects and do day to day activities. For example, muscular endurance is how many times you can move a weight without getting exhausted.
Range of Motion - that's your ability to move a joint through a full range of motion (flexibility) .
Speed - Enough said!
Coordination - how your body works together to produce movements.
Agility- can you change body position efficiently, using balance, coordination, speed, reflexes, strength and endurance?
