Components of Fitness

Fitness defines the ability to perform physical activity, and encompasses a wide range of abilities. Each sport and activity requires a specific set of skills, and so being fit for a particular sport requires a specific skill set. Being fit for one sport does not necessarily make you fit for another.

Although it is not all clear cut, fitness is generally divided into specific fitness categories or components (listed below), and each can be tested and trained individually.
