Flexibility- The Missing Link

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. The components of physical fitness are divided into to two categories:

Health Related components: Those factors that are related to how well the systems of your body work

  • Cardiovascular Fitness: The ability of the circulatory system (heart and blood vessels) to supply oxygen to working muscles during exercise.
  • Body Composition: The relative percentage of body fat compared to lean body mass
  • Flexibility: The range of pain free movement possible at various joints.
  • Muscular strength: The amount of force that can be produced by a single contraction of a muscle
  • Muscular endurance: The ability of a muscle group to continue muscle movement over a length of time.

Skill Related Components: Those aspects of fitness which form the basis for success in sport or daily activities

  • Speed: The ability to move quickly from one point to another in a straight line
  • Agility: The ability of the body to change direction quickly
  • Balance: The ability to maintain an upright posture while still or moving
  • Coordination: Integration with hand and/or foot movements with the input of the senses.
  • Reaction Time: Amount of time it takes to get moving.
  • Power: The ability to do strength work at an explosive pace.
