Physical fitness is a multidimensional state of being fit. It is a state of being fit that consists of atleast five health-related and six skill-related, physical fitness components, each of which contributes to the total quality of life. Physical fitness is associated with an ability of a human body to work energetically, resist hypo-kinetic diseases, and meet strongly with emergency situations. It is related to, but different from, health and wellness.
Although the development of physical fitness is the result of many things, optimal physical fitness is not possible without regular physical activity.
Body composition— The percentage of muscle, fat, bone, and other tissues that comprise the body comes under body composition. A fit person has a relatively low, but not too low, percentage of body fat (body fatness).
Muscular Endurance— The ability of the muscles to repeatedly exert themselves. A fit person can repeat all movements for a long period of time.
Cardiovascular fitness—The ability of the heart, blood vessels, blood, and respiratory system to supply fuel and oxygen to the muscles and the ability of the muscles to utilize fuel to allow sustained exercise. A fit person can persist in physical activity for relatively long periods without undue stress.
Flexibility—The range of motion available in a joint. It is affected by muscle length, joint structure, and other factors. A fit person can move the body joints through a full range of motion in work and in play.
Strength—The ability of the muscles to exert an external force or to lift a heavy weight. A fit person can do work or play that involves exerting force, such as lifting or controlling one’s own body weight.
Physical Fitness- The ability of human body to function efficiently and effectively is considered as physical fitness. Physical fitness consists of both health-related and skill related, which have at least 11 different components, each of which contribute to total quality of life. Physical fitness also includes metabolic fitness.
