Staying Fit and Healthy

Staying health can be challenging and fun. Physical fitness can be described as a condition that helps you look, feel, and do your best. Learn about the components of fitness and how to improve them, set yourself a goal, and see how far you can take your own level of fitness. While you’re at it, why not try to encourage your friends, teachers, parents, or siblings to get healthy too? Help others live linger, be happier, and have fun!

Components of Fitness

  • Cardiovascular Fitness – The ability to deliver oxygen and nutrients to tissues (e.g muscle, organs) and to remove wastes over a period of time.
  • Muscular Endurance – The ability of a muscle (or group of muscles) to generate force over several repetitions or to continue maintaining that force over a period of time.
  • Muscular Strength – The ability of a muscle to generate a force for a short period of time.
  • Body Composition – The way your body is made in terms of lean mass (the weight of your muscles, bones, vital tissues, and organs) and fat mass (the weight of fat tissue in your body).
  • Flexibility – The ability to move joints and use muscles through their full range of motion.

Be S.M.A.R.T about your fitness goals

  • Specific – Make your goal as specific as possible (e.g. “I want to be able to do 20 sit ups in 60 seconds by 15th of next month”).
  • Measurable – Pick a goal that will allow you to measure your progress over time (e.g. “At first I could do 10 sit ups, but now I can do 15!”).
  • Attainable – Be sure to challenge yourself, don’t set the bar too low (e.g. “12 sit ups is too easy of a goal, I’ll make it 20!).
  • Realistic – Challenge yourself but don’t set yourself up for failure. (e.g. “1000 sit ups in 60 seconds is impossible, I’ll go with 20).
  • Time – Set a deadline for your goal and try to achieve it! (e.g. I want to do this by 15th of this month).

    Very specific and needful as folks are getting back in shape after COVID (or during it). I really like the layers of fitness to consider. Thinking about BMI and flexibility.

    Stay healthy!
