There are two types of fitness:Performance-related fitness is linked to athletic performance (for example: a 50-yard dash time or the ability to maneuver around obstacles quickly) and is linked to speed, reaction time, and coordination.
Health-related fitness is linked to fitness components that may lower risks such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or low back pain. Health-related physical fitness includes the following components:
- Aerobic fitness - ability of the heart and lungs to deliver blood to muscles,
- Muscular strength and endurance - enough to do normal activities easily and protect the low back,
- Flexibility - ability to move your many joints through their proper range of motion, and
- Body composition - not too much body fat, especially around the waist.

|I would like to dedicate this picture to Amanda at Runninghood. She has a problem with wearing her Zensah tights inside out. I noticed when I was cropping the picture that mine here are inside out, although mine are Nike and not as cool as her Zensah tights|
Aerobic Fitness Test 1.5 mile run 10:08 minutes
Note: I did not go out and run this morning I just used a recent time from the first 1.5 miles of a race, so I still think I could do it faster, but this will work
