James Munro from the UK had contacted me about a post I wrote regarding the five components of fitness. James and his team developed an amazing infographic about the components. See his comments to me below:
An understanding of the key components of fitness is central to any fitness programme. By covering the key components you’ll develop a more comprehensive workout routine that will be hugely beneficial to the entire body. In conjunction with this it’s important to define your goals and work within a manageable timeframe that provides enough of a challenge but at the same time doesn’t overstretching you.
The following infographic by The Academy Health Club uses the S.M.A.R.T principle to help you structure your goals and highlights the 5 key components of fitness along with recommended exercises to help you work on each individual aspect of your fitness. Due to its visual nature the infographic also lends itself well to being used as a learning aid, allowing the concepts explored to be easily understood and put into practice within an actual training routine.
