Have you had a hard time picking out a gym or fitness program? Endless health and fitness solutions exist everywhere you look. Gyms, clinics, online videos and just about every other option you can imagine is now available and advertised as a quick-fix. You see them on signs on the road, ads on the radio, and weight-loss solutions all over the internet. Now imagine being a fitness professional. It’s hard to escape the fitness bubble and frankly, it’s frustrating when you research these advertised programs and you find out how lacking their programming is.
Any qualified fitness professional will tell you that a well-rounded program will include all of the five major components of health: cardiovascular endurance, muscular endurance, muscular strength, flexibility, and body composition. How well-rounded is your program?
Here are examples of each component and ways you can insert each into your routine:
If you’re training for something (half marathon, triathlon, weight-loss goal), I can’t think of any excuses as to why you can’t fit all if not most of these important components into your routine.
