How fit is your family?

Definitions  and performance standards of physical fitness vary.However,  most experts agree that the five basic components offitness are:

1. Cardiorespiratory or Aerobic Endurance

The ability to do moderately strenuous activity over a period  of time. Itreflects how well your heart and lungs work together to supply  oxygen to your bodyduring exertion and exercise.  Also called aerobic fitness.

2. Muscular Endurance

The ability to hold a particular position for a sustained period of time  or  repeat a movement many times. This  could  be the capability required to hold a two-pound weight above  your  headfor five minutes or the effort required to lift that  weight  20consecutive times.

3. Muscular Strength

The ability to exert maximum force, such as lifting the heaviest weight you can budge, one time. It is possible to have muscular strength  in onearea, say your arms, while lacking  strength  in another area such as your legs.

4. Flexibility

The ability to move a joint through its full range of motion; the elasticity ofthe muscle. This is how limber or supple you are.

5. Body Composition

The  proportion  of fat in your body compared to your boneand muscle.  It  does  not refer to your weight in pounds  or your figure.
