The 5 Components of Physical Fitness
 
1. Cardiovascular Fitness
Cardiovascular fitness (also known as cardiorespiratory fitness) is the ability of the heart, lungs and vascular system to deliver oxygen-rich blood to working muscles during sustained physical activity. Aerobic exercise improves cardiovascular fitness.
 
2. Muscular Strength
Muscular strength is the amount of force a muscle or muscle group can exert against a heavy resistance.
Anaerobic excerise improves muscular strength.
 
3. Muscular Endurance
Muscular endurance is the ability of a muscle or muscle group to repeat a movement many times or to hold a particular position for an extended period of time. Both aerobic exercise and anaerobic exercise can improve muscular endurance.
 
4. Flexibility
Flexibility is the degree to which an individual muscle will lengthen. Stretching improves flexibility.
 
5. Body Composition
Body composition is the amount of fat in the body compared to the amount of lean mass (muscle, bones, organs etc.).
