Performance in terms of physical or health-related fitness is associated with skills that allow us to become and stay physically healthy. These skills span across Muscular Strength, Muscular Endurance, Cardiovascular Fitness, Body Composition and Flexibility. Our tendency is to focus on one or two of these skills, such as how fast can I run a 5K, how much weight can I bench press or training to run a marathon. In reality, we should be focused on some aspects of all of these skills to optimize our physical health. Focusing on all of these skills does not mean we are training to be an Olympic athlete. Whether we realize it or not, our bodies are relying on balance, coordination, flexibility, mobility, strength and endurance in some capacity in our everyday lives. Improving our performance goes a long way in preventing injuries and allowing us to start and/or continue doing the activities we love to do for many years to come!
