 This new enviroment produces more sedentary people, and leads to dysfunction and increased incidents of injury including chronic disease, low-back pain, knee injuries and other musculoskeletal injuries.

 In working with today’s typical client, who is likely to be decondiotioned, the fitness professional must use special consideration when designing fitness programmes. An integrated approach should be used to create safe programmes that consider functional capacity for each individual person.

Flexibility Training

Physical Fitness : The wellbeing of the body systems, the heart, lungs, muscles, bones and joints Health related and skill related components.

Mental and Emotional Fitness : The wellbeing of the mind. A positive mental state and harmony between the mind and emotions. Being able to manage stress.

Medical Fitness : Being free from injury, chronic disease and illness.

Nutritional Fitness : Having access to healthy food, eating a healthy diet, with a balanced nutritional intake for fuel, growth and repair.

This definition remains unchanged.
