Study Notes

Skill-Related Fitness Components

  • A combination of skills or abilities determines a skilled performance in a particular sport.
  • A high level of health-related components can make skill acquisition easier.


  • Power is the application of strength and speed during a muscular movement.
  • Power is closely related to dynamic strength, with speed or quickness of movement as the added dimension.
  • Strength alone will not develop power.


  • Speed is the ability to move the body or a region of the body as rapidly as possible from one point to another.
  • Speed refers to the rate of movement or the amount of time it takes for a body or object to travel between two points.

Reaction Time

  • Reaction time is the time lapse between the presentation of the stimulus (sound-sight-touch) and the first muscular movement of the performer.
  • Reaction time enables the performer to move faster, which can affect other skill components such as speed and power.

Health-Related Fitness Components

Muscular Strength

  • Muscular strength is the ability of the muscle to exert force during an activity.
  • The key to making muscles stronger is working them against resistance.

Muscular Endurance

  • Muscular endurance is the ability of the muscle to continue to perform without fatigue.
  • To improve muscular endurance, try cardiorespiratory activities such as walking, jogging, cycling, or dancing.


  • Flexibility is the range of motion around a joint.
  • Good flexibility in the joints can help prevent injuries through all stages of life.

Cardiorespiratory Endurance

  • Cardiorespiratory endurance is the ability of the body's circulatory and respiratory systems to supply fuel during sustained physical activity.
  • To improve cardiorespiratory endurance, try activities that keep the heart rate elevated at a safe level for a sustained length of time.

Body Composition

  • Body composition refers to the relative amount of muscle, fat, bone, and other vital parts of the body.
  • A person's total body weight may not change over time, but body composition is important to consider for health and managing weight.

Agility, Balance, and Coordination

  • Agility is the ability to change body positions quickly and accurately to the indicated response or situation.
  • Balance is the ability to maintain a specific body position while still or in motion.
  • Coordination is the speed and accuracy of correct muscle response to produce a desired movement.
