All clients have programs uniquely designed to help them achieve their goals and objectives. Programs will all have a variety of fitness components in them.
Components of Fitness
These components show the great diversity in fitness. I create individual plans that suit your needs so that you get the results you want.
Endurance- is the ability for muscles to repeatedly contract against resistance for a certain amount of time. Muscle endurance can be increased by adding reputations to sets so that muscles are under tension longer. Holding movements increase time under tension as well.
Strength – is when muscles are used to apply force. Strength is the maximum output that a muscle can do in a single effort against some form of resistance. To increase strength weight must be increased.
Power – Maximum output in a limited amount of time. This concept is very important to athletes as quick powerful movements are in evident in several sports.
Cardiovascular – The ability for the body to deliver oxygen throughout the body. When cardio is trained the heart and lungs are strengthened which can decrease resting hearts. This helps the body run more efficiently.
Flexibility – Deals with range of motion around a joint. Increasing range of motion decreases injuries and allows the body to move more freely . Stretching increases flexibility and should be done daily.
Speed – Determines how fast a movement is done. Holding movements and slowing them down puts muscle under tension longer which can strengthen them.
Coordination – The ability to do a variety of movement patterns at the same time.
Balance – Is the ability to control your bodies centre of gravity in relation to your base of support. Your base of support refers to width between your feet.
Cardio is an area many people struggle with, so trying new activities can make it fun. This is my touch football team that won the championship last year.
