I was talking to a client this morning about getting the body they want and we discussed the 5 components of fitness. She did not know what they were and that each area should be considered in a well rounded fitness program for the general apparently-healthy population. So I decided to list them and let you consider how each plays a role in your own exercise programming.
1. Cardiovascular Fitness
2. Muscular Strength
3. Muscular Endurance
5. Body Composition
A side note: Adults age 55 and over need to consider mobility, agility, flexibility, and power as major components of functional daily living program to fight off disability as you age! I will talk more about gracefull aging in my next blog post. Thank You!
