 I was talking to a client this morning about getting the body they want and we discussed the 5 components of fitness. She did not know what they were and that each area should be considered in a well rounded fitness program for the general apparently-healthy population. So I decided to list them and let you consider how each plays a role in your own exercise programming. 1. Cardiovascular Fitness


 1. Be positive. Believe you can do this. 2. Do 2 extra reps with each exercise. 3. Finish your training off with this. a. 6 squats. b. 6 push ups.c. 6 reverse lunges. Do has many rounds in 5 min Have a great Thursday
