Components Of Fitness
We will work on some or all of these as a part of your programme (more really good reasons to hire me…)
Flexibility & Mobility
Defined as the range of motion around a joint. Flexibility is different to Mobility: mobility can be best described as ‘controlled flexibility’ and is of higher value in daily life. Passive flexibility is where a joint is pushed or pulled through a range of motion by an external force, whereas mobility is where movement is controlled by the muscle group affecting that joint. Poor mobility can lead to loss of power, injury and lower quality of life. Mobility difficulties are uncovered and dealt with through corrective exercises to improve posture and movement. In itself, a great reason to hire me!
Cardiorespiratory fitness (CF) is defined as the health and function of the heart, lungs, and circulatory system. CF is the ability of the body to sustain prolonged activity and work effectively in intense activity. Activities such as running, walking, biking, rowing or swimming sustained over a duration of time and higher intensity work will enhance CF endurance and efficiency.
Muscular fitness has 2 sub-components: Muscular Strength is characterized by the maximal force muscle(s) can generate, i.e. a 1 rep max (1RM), and Muscular Endurance is the ability to perform repeated muscular effort and prolong fatigue. There is a strength/endurance continuum that we manipulate through training variables such as intensity, sets, reps and rest period.
Body Composition relates to the ratio between the amount of lean tissue (bone, muscle, organs) and body fat that a person carries on his or her body. Weight is not the concern: two individuals may be the same weight but their relative body composition will mean they look and move very differently. High percentages of body fat have been linked to metabolic disease, low energy, and compromised emotional health. Appearance-wise; no judgement here, I’m only concerned with how you look if you are.
