Remember gym class? If you’re a child of the 80′s or 90′s, you were probably part of a group of kids who had to start writing essays instead of running laps. At least in Massachusetts, where I grew up, the education reforms demanded that kids learned more about how the body works while participating in phys-ed.
So you know there are 5 main components of fitness: cariovascular endurance, muscular endurance, strength, flexibility, and body composition. There’s actually a pretty good breakdown on the way I learned it back in high school right here.
