"According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC),
physical fitness is defined as 'the ability to carry out daily tasks with
vigor and alertness, without undue fatigue, and with ample energy to enjoy
leisure-time pursuits and respond to emergencies.' Based on this
definition, fitness involves everything from getting out of bed to hiking
to performing CPR.
In order to complete all of these tasks, one must consistently address
their fitness levels. This requires proper conditioning through both
structured exercise and leisurely activities."
MAIN COMPONENTS OF FITNESS
Depending on the source, the components of fitness vary considerably. Below
are common components:
- Cardiorespiratory endurance - typically measured by how long or fast a
person can perform an activity and how this impacts measurements such as
heart rate and oxygen consumption.
- Muscular endurance - typically measured by how many repetitions of an
exercise a person can perform. Common tests involve push-ups and sit ups.
- Muscular strength - typically measured by how much weight can be moved
in relation to repetitions. Exercises involving multiple joints and muscle
groups such as squats or bench press are often used.
- Muscular power - typically measured by how much force can be generated
during a given activity. Advanced equipment used by biomechanists are often
needed to measure muscular power.
- Flexibility - typically measured by how far a muscle group can be
stretched or joint can be moved. The most common tests involve the
hamstrings and shoulders.
- Balance - typically measured by how long a particular position can be
held with or without some type of activity being performed. Simple tests
such as standing on one leg can be used to assess balance. More advanced
tests may involve standing on an unsteady object while trying to catch a
- Speed - typically measured by how quickly an individual can move from
one point to another. The 40-yard dash is often used to assess speed.
- Body composition - this is the amount of fat on the body versus other
tissues such as muscle, bones and skin. Measured using a variety of tests
and devices. Simple tests using mathematical equations or calipers are
common and inexpensive. More advanced tests such as underwater weighing are
far less common and much more expensive.
In many cases, endurance and strength are the components used to assess
fitness. But utilizing the other components offer a more complete picture
of overall fitness, along with health and athleticism.
