How do I define the term fitness

Fitness refers to your ability to preform your Activities of Daily Living (ADLs). ADLs are, basically the things you do as part of your daily routine: get out of bed, get dressed, fix your food, go to work, etc.

Fitness has five components to it:

  1. Body Composition, your fat to muscle mass ratio.
  2. Flexibility, how well you can move your joints through their full range of motion.
  3. Muscular strength, how strong you are.
  4. Muscular endurance, how long you can actively use your muscles.
  5. Cardiorespiratory endurance, how long can you actively use your muscled before your heart and lungs can’t keep up.

Combine those five areas and you get your overall fitness.
