Unit 1- Fitness Testing + Training- Components Of Fitness

These are the 10 components of fitness but be aware that accuracy is reffered to reaction time. Stamina is reffered to muscular endurance.




  1. Cardiovascular/Respiratory Endurance - The ability of the body systems to gather, process, and transport oxygen.
  2. Stamina - The ability of a muscle to continue contracting over a period of time against a light moderate load. 
  3. Strength - The ability of a muscular unit, or combo of muscular units to apply force.
  4. Flexibility - The ability of maximizing range of motion at a given joint.
  5. Power - The ability of a muscular unit, or combo of muscular units to apply maximum force in minimum time.
  6. Speed - The ability to minimize the time cycle of a repeated movement.
  7. Agility - The ability to minimize transition time between one movement pattern to another.
  8. Coordination - The ability to combine several distinct movement patterns into a singular distinct movement.
  9. Balance - The ability to control the placement of the bodies’ center of gravity in relation to its’ support base.
  10. Reaction Time - The time taken for a sports proformer to respond to a stimulas and the innatation of their responce. 
Here is a video clip of the multi stage fitness test, a test for C.V endurance.
