1. Cardiorespiratory Endurance :- The ability of heart,blood vessels,lungs and blood to deliver oxygen and nutrients to all body's cells while being physically active.Intensity,Frequency,Time and Type depend on the goals of the individual,Link to FITT for cardiorespiratory is coming soon.To improve it try activities that keep your heart rate elevated at a safe level for a sustained length of time such as walking,bicycling or swimming.
2. Body Composition :- It defines the ration of lean body tissue to body fat tissue.A  person's body weight may not change over time,but the bathroom scale does not assess how much is lean mass.Body composition is important to consider for health and managing weight.To improve body composition all the health related components of fitness and good nutrition are critical.Keep  in mind that nutrition impacts exercise and exercise impacts nutritional needs.
3. Flexibility :- The ability of the joints to move through their full range of motion Intensity 15-30 seconds,Frequency 3-5 days in a week Time Stretch for 15-30 seconds Type Warm up or cool down and dynamic or static stretches can be done.Stretching should feel warm and fuzzy and never cause one pain.Never bounce when stretching and stretch longer or more often to improve.Good flexibility in the joints can prevent injuries through all stages of life.
4. Muscular Strength :- It is the amount of force that a muscle can apply in a given contraction.The key to making muscles stronger is working them against resistance,whether that be from weights or gravity.If you want to gain muscle strength,then try exercises such as lifting weights or resistance exercises.More weight with less reps will promote muscular strength.
5. Muscular Endurance :- It is the ability of the muscles to keep working over a period of time.When most people think of muscular endurance they think of things like running and cycling.The fact is muscular endurance is important to almost any activity that requires any use of physical strength and is one of the more important aspects of physical fitness and performance.
