Five Elements of Fitness

When most people think of fitness training they focus on aerobic fitness and muscular fitness, but as an article on the Mayo Clinic’s website points out, a good fitness education training program balances five elements, aerobic fitness, strength fitness, stretching, core exercise, and balance training. The article does a good job of explaining the importance of each element while giving examples of different exercises that one could put to use in their fitness education system. Below is a brief rundown of each element according to the Mayo Clinic’s article. Mayo clinic describes aerobic fitness as “any physical activity that uses large muscle groups and increases your heart rate.” Why does the Mayo Clinic consider it important? “Aerobic exercise causes you to breathe faster and more deeply, which maximizes the amount of oxygen in your blood. The better your aerobic fitness, the more efficiently your heart, lungs and blood vessels transport oxygen throughout your body, and the easier it is to complete routine physical tasks and rise to unexpected challenges, such as running to your car in the pouring rain.” Aerobic fitness should be a pillar in your fitness education programs.
