I am silver Fit
As a Fitness Coach I like my clients to strive to be Healthy first before seeking higher wellness goals, especially my clients older than 59 (). Once they reach the I am Healthy Fit mark I suggest to some of my senior clients to reach for the I am Silver Fit mark, but what does being Fit mean? Most people have no idea and when they do it is usually extreme thoughts. Fitness professionals widely consider the five fitness components to be body composition, flexibility, muscular endurance, muscular strength, and cardiorespiratory ability (). You should strive to have an above average level on each component tests to consider yourself I am sFit. The self-tests I compiled are the safest, most informative, and simplest to implement. They are not athletic or performance tests. Many of the tests are considered Functional Tests.
