Meaning of Fitness

What is Fitness:

Physical conditioning is the development of conditional and coordinative capacities to improve physical performance through exercise.

Physical conditioning is important as it increases the physical capabilities of the individual helping to maintain a healthy and stronger body.

General physical conditioning is necessary for any type of physical activity, as it improves performance and maintains physical and mental well-being.

Physical conditioning is characterized by its preparation and development exercises in the following aspects:

  • Resistance: helps to support a greater physical load for a longer time thus delaying premature fatigue.
  • Force: move and support more mass.
  • Flexoelasticity: flexibility and elasticity in the muscles and greater mobility in the joints helps protect them against injury and helps them have a greater range of movement.
  • Speed: travel a distance in a shorter amount of time.
  • Coordination: necessary to move effectively.
  • Balance: linked to coordination, it prevents the body from losing control.

In physical education, physical conditioning exercises must be guided by a professional to avoid injury and help the individual determine their current physical capacity for continuous improvement.

The warm-up are the exercises prior to any physical conditioning. Flexibility exercises are the most common and help the muscles to stretch avoiding injuries due to lack of elasticity.
