Depending on the source, the components of fitness vary considerably. Below are common components:
Cardiorespiratory endurance - typically measured by how long or fast a person can perform an activity and how this impacts measurements such as heart rate and oxygen consumption.
Muscular endurance - typically measured by how many repetitions of an exercise a person can perform. Common tests involve push-ups and sit ups.
Muscular strength - typically measured by how much weight can be moved in relation to repetitions. Exercises involving multiple joints and muscle groups such as squats or bench press are often used.
Muscular power - typically measured by how much force can be generated during a given activity. Advanced equipment used by biomechanists are often needed to measure muscular power.
Flexibility - typically measured by how far a muscle group can be stretched or joint can be moved. The most common tests involve the hamstrings and shoulders.
Balance - typically measured by how long a particular position can be held with or without some type of activity being performed. Simple tests such as standing on one leg can be used to assess balance. More advanced tests may involve standing on an unsteady object while trying to catch a ball.
Speed - typically measured by how quickly an individual can move from one point to another. The 40-yard dash is often used to assess speed.
Body composition - this is the amount of fat on the body versus other tissues such as muscle, bones and skin. Measured using a variety of tests and devices. Simple tests using mathematical equations or calipers are common and inexpensive

SLS WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM
OUR 60 Day Weight Loss Program Includes
Your detailed consultation with the trainer will help understand the dos and dont’s that you need to follow for next 60 days. He will help you understand what foods to avoid and how you can manoeuvre nutrition to speed up the fat loss process.
Your calorie count, metabolism and body type are some important factors that you need to understand beforehand without which your effort towards weight loss will be a complete failure. For example calorie count for a person who weighs 100 kgs will be completely different from someone who weighs 70 kgs or BMR for an active person will be entirely different from someone who has a sedentary lifestyle and hence both cannot follow the same diet or nutrition plan.
The first consultation session with the trainer will take at-least 45 minutes post which personalised diet and workout plans are made for you.
Your diet is the most important factor when it comes to weight loss. What you eat, how much you eat, how to mix and match carbohydrates, protein and fat can really speed up the weight loss process. A healthy diet can not only help lose weight easily but if done correctly it can also help improve skin quality, increase metabolism and improve overall health & fitness.
