Defining Physical Fitness

Physical fitness is “a set of abilities that one possesses in order to perform physical activities.

Physical activity is any bodily movement produced by the contraction of skeletal muscles that results in a substantial increase in energy expenditure” (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention or CDC, 1985).

I can become physically fit (e.g., improve or maintain it) through exercise, which is “a type of physical activity consisting of planned, structured and repetitive bodily movement” (CDC, 1985). This means that physical fitness is a measurable set of characteristics that is determined by my exercise habits (American College of Sports Medicine or ACSM, 2010).
