Physical Fitness is the ability of the human body to function with vigor and alertness, without undue fatigue, and with enough energy to engage in leisure activities, while meeting physical stresses of everyday life.
On this website, you will learn that fitness is not about being thin, having a small waist, or necessarily having bulging muscles.
Fitness is a combination of qualities that enable you to be at your full potential for performing vigorous physical activities, whether a leisurely stroll in the park, a hike in the mountains, or a triathlon; whether a beginning fitness buff or a professional athlete. Physical Fitness involves the performance of the heart, lungs, and the muscles of the body. More importantly, fitness considers our Cardio Respiratory Endurance, Muscular Strength, Muscular Endurance, and Flexibility. To some extent, Fitness also influences our mental and emotional development since what we do with our bodies also affects what we can do with our minds.
Although Physical Fitness and good health influence each other, they are not the same. Healthy people could be physically unfit due to lack of exercise. On the other hand, Physically Fit people perform their everyday tasks effortlessly.
