FITNESS?
WHAT REALLY IS
FITNESS IS A GENERAL STATE OF HEALTH, WELLBEING, AND
MORE SPECIFICALLY, THE ABILITY TO PERFORM ASPECTS
OF SPORTS, OCCUPATIONAL AND DAILY ACTIVITIES. IT CAN
BE GENERALLY ACHIEVED THROUGH PROPER NUTRITION,
MODERATE - VIGOROUS PHYSICAL EXERCISE, PHYSICAL
ACTIVITY AND SUFFICIENT REST.
Wikipedia
THEANTIFIT.COM
WOW! TAKE A CONCEPT, AND TURN TO THE
EXPERTS TO MAKE IT SOUND COMPLEX AND
BORING. THIS IS WHY THERE ARE SO MANY
GYMBECILES OUT THERE, DISHING OUT THEIR
BRO-SCIENCE!
THEANTIFIT.COM
FITNESS, BROKEN DOWN TO IT'S BASICS, IS THE
LEVEL OF PERSON'S ABILITY TO PERFORM A
CERTAIN TASK.
(EXAMPLE: WHEN SOMEONE IN AN INTERVIEW ASKS
YOU IF YOU ARE FIT FOR THE JOB, SHE BASICALLY IS
ASKING IF YOU HAVE THE CAPABILITY TO PERFORM
IT.)
THEANTIFIT.COM
Now fitness isn't absolute per-se.
It is a level of efficiency. Let's use
an example to understand.
A 100 meter race. The person
who can run it the fastest (Usain
Bolt?), is the fittest for it.
However, if you can run 100
meters without having a heart
attack first, you still are fit for the
activity. Though not nearly AS FIT
as Usain Bolt.
THEANTIFIT.COM
Now if you watch Game of
Thrones, you'd know who "The
Mountain" is. His name is Hafþór
Júlíus Björnsson and he is a
professional strongman.
In 2015 he lifted a 650Kg log for
five steps, breaking a 1000 year
old record.

  • 7. Who is fitter then? Usain Bolt or the freakishly strong man whose name I couldn't be bothered to type again? No comparison right? The former is fitter for sprinting and the latter is fitter for lifting. This essentially means that fitness is task specific. THEANTIFIT.COM
  • 8. WHAT WOULD BE YOUR ANSWER IF SOMEONE ASKS, “ARE YOU FIT?” THEANTIFIT.COM
  • 9. THE ANSWER… Depends entirely on what you do. If you are living your daily life and performing regular activities without any pains, discomfort or related hassle, you are standard definition fit. However, when we address fitness in the real world, we also include health and mental well-being. THEANTIFIT.COM
  • 10. Then while you'd be living the life of a couch potato eating potato chips comfortably, you'd still be grossly unfit in the real sense of the word. Your arteries would be clogged with speed breakers dying (pun intended) to help form a blood clot. Your spine would have taken the form of a question mark, as if questioning the reason for your very existence. Your pot belly would have refused to give you visual access to your private parts since any vigorous activity related to those could assist the arterial speed breakers in their job. Add stress to the equation, and all your nominees grab their popcorn and wait. THEANTIFIT.COM
  • 11. YOU'D ALSO BE THE PERFECT TARGET AUDIENCE FOR THE 12:30PM AB-ROCKER/ SAUNA-BELT INFOMERCIALS (READ: TOWEL DRYING RACKS) AND THESE. NOT. SO. GOOD. NOT. SO. FIT. THEANTIFIT.COM
  • 12. SOOOOOO, BROADLY SPEAKING, YOU HAVE TO MEET THE BASELINE LEVELS OF STRENGTH (PICK, PUSH, PULL ETC.), CARDIOVASCULAR ABILITY (WALK, RUN, RUN-LIKE-HELL), MUSCULAR COORDINATION AND FLEXIBILITY TO BE FIT. THERE ON, IT WOULD BE A PROCESS OF DOING ALL THIS STUFF BETTER AND QUICKER THAT WOULD MAKE YOU FITTER AND FITTER. YOU COULD ALSO CHOOSE TO MEET MOST BASELINE TARGETS AND THEN PICK ONE AREA TO GET BETTER IN. IT COULD BE LONG DISTANCE RUNNING, OR CYCLING, OR LIFTING WEIGHTS, SWIMMING....WHATEVER. THEANTIFIT.COM
  • 13. NOW YOU KNOW WHAT FITNESS MEANS! THEANTIFIT.COM
  • 14. COMPONENTS OF FITNESS FITNESS COMPONENTS ARE MAJORLY DIVIDED INTO TWO PARTS, HEALTH BASED AND SKILLS BASED. THEANTIFIT.COM
  • 15. HEALTH BASE ▸ Stability and mobility ▸ Cardiovascular Endurance ▸ Strength ▸ Flexibility ▸ Body composition SKILL BASE ▸ Balance ▸ Power ▸ Speed ▸ Agility ▸ Coordination ▸ Reaction time THEANTIFIT.COM
  • 16. CHEERS! I WILL BE GETTING FURTHER INTO HOW YOU CAN GO ABOUT GETTING THE BASIC LEVELS IN PLACE IN SUBSEQUENT POSTS. THEANTIFIT.COM
