 10 Components of Physical Fitness


Fitness is not defined simply by strength and conditioning. In fact, there are 8 other components that encompass the characteristics of physical fitness. You are only as fit as your competency in each of these ten skills:

Cardiovascular / Respiratory Endurance – The ability of body systems to gather, process, and deliver oxygen.

Stamina – The ability of body systems to process, deliver, store, and utilize energy.

Strength – The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply force.

Flexibility – The ability to maximize the range of motion at a given joint.

Power – The ability of a muscular unit, or combination of muscular units, to apply maximum force in minimum time.

Speed – The ability to minimize the time cycle of a repeated movement.

Coordination – The ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a singular distinct movement.

Agility – The ability to minimize transition time from one movement pattern to another.

Balance – The ability to control the placement of the body’s center of gravity in relation to its support base.

Accuracy – The ability to control movement in a given direction or at a given intensity.

At CrossFit Southie we are constantly working toward achieving all 10 of the components which will create a more fit, well balanced individual. Our program is designed to touch on all of the physical skills each week so do not avoid the workouts/movements you are not good at.  Take a long hard look at this list and if you are lacking in any areas, work hard to bring them up and your overall fitness will reap the benefits.
