What are The 10 Components of Fitness?
These are the 10 components that are found in life and sport and at Functional Fitness as in the world of Crossfit, you need to be fit across all 10 components.
- Cardiovascular Endurance
Crossfitters focus on building all areas of fitness because in life and we strongly believe that specialists are not fit because they can only function in their specialty. A marathon runner very rarely has the strength to deadlift their own body weight or the anaerobic capacity to do 75 burpees. Likewise a bodybuilder often would “tank” on a 20 km run and a yoga specialist likely couldn’t do 20 chin-ups. It is our beleif that you are only as fit as your weakest component of fitness.
