Cardiorespiratory Fitness:
Cardiorespiratory fitness is the ability of the body’s heart (circulatory system) and lungs (respiratory system) to supply oxygen during sustained physical exercise.
Muscular Strength:
Muscular strength is the ability of the muscles to exert maximal or near maximal effort.
Muscular Endurance:
Muscular endurance is the ability of the muscles to continute to perform sustained submaximal muscular effort.
Body Composition:
