FITNESS VS HEALTH BENEFITS
~ In order to become physically fit it is best to train every day. (ACSM)

Cardio-respiratory Endurance refers to the ability of the body to take in, deliver, and extract oxygen for physical work or to perform prolonged, large muscle dynamic exercise at moderate-to-high levels of intensity.
Muscular Strength is the maximum force that a muscle can exert in a single contraction or with a single maximum effort.
Muscular Endurance is the capacity to exert repetitive muscular force or the ability of the muscle to remain contracted or contract repeatedly for long periods of time.
Flexibility refers to the range of motion in a specific joint or group of joints. Flexibility is related to muscle length.
Body Composition is the proportion of lean mass (muscle, bone, and water) and fat tissue in the body.
Principle of Reversibility (Disuse)-When physical training is stopped or reduced, the body will adjust to the new and diminished level. When a person stops exercising, up to 50% of fitness improvements are lost within 2 months.
