Understanding which fitness courses are right for you.
People want good fitness courses in order to get fit and then stay fit. So what exactly does fitness mean? And which fitness course is right for you?
What is fitness?
For this website we are interested in your physical fitness. Therefore, in our case, fitness means having the body capabilities that enable you to perform physical activities successfully and without leaving you feeling that physical exercise is beyond you. That is a simple summary of one medical description of fitness published in relation to sports medicine.
Being physically fit means being able to perform physical activities. But it goes beyond that. It is the ability not just to run a mile but to do so over and over again. In the gym it means not just lifting heavy weight but doing so over and over again. It involves a higher intensity of exercise than an unfit person would achieve.
High levels of overall fitness are reliant on you being able to breathe satisfactorily whilst under intense activity. It also needs your heart to be able to pump sufficient blood around your body so that muscles are supplied with the vital oxygen needed for intensive physical performance.
You’ll also need to develop muscle strength and the ability for your muscles to endure intensive exercise over extended periods of time. Of course you will also need a body that is flexible and not stiff, over weight or incapable of bending. To a degree that is affected by what you eat so diet or nutrition is part of your physical fitness.
Other people have come up with their own definitions and within the fitness sector there is a lot of discussion and argument about what constitutes fitness. However, the above gives a usable guide to what most people want to achieve from their fitness courses.
