1. Assess your Fitness level prior to coming to VWIL and currently. Use your SET scores, PFT scores and any other fitness testing as documentation. Comment on all of the components of Fitness – Cardiorespiratory Endurance, Flexibility, Muscular Strength and Endurance and Body Composition.
There are five components to fitness: body composition, cardiorespiratory endurance, flexibility, muscle strength, and muscle endurance. Body composition is the amount of muscle, bone, fat, etc. that makes up our bodies. Cardiorespiratory endurance is the body’s ability to provide enough energy to sustain submaximal levels of exercise continuously. Flexibility is the movement available at the joints, usually controlled by the length of one’s muscles. Additionally, muscle strength is the ability of muscle to exert a force to overcome resistance. Muscle endurance is the ability of muscle to make repeated contractions over time. Each of these components has grown during my time in VWIL.
Before VWIL, my body composition was relatively small in body fat and muscles as well as my bones were not the strongest since I began becoming lactose intolerant. My cardiorespiratory endurance was not the best since the I could not produce enough energy for submaximal levels of exercise. My flexibility was not the best either because my joints weren’t the best at moving or stretching since I never stretched before a workout. My muscle strength was weak because I
