Agility
The ability to stop, start, and change directions quickly (example: a football player cutting across the field or a gymnast doing a floor routine)
1 of 11
Power
The ability to use muscle strength quickly (example: plyometric or jumping exercises)
2 of 11
Strength
Produces force using muscles (example: performing a bench press or pull-up) Muscular Strength can be measured by performing a 1 rep max test on the bench press.
3 of 11
Cardio vascular
Engaging in physical activity for long periods of time (example: a cross-country runner or marthon runner) Cardiovascular Endurance can be measured by a stress test on a treadmill or stationary bike.
4 of 11
Coordination
Making movements work together smoothly (example: performing a squat on a BOSU while doing a shoulder press)
5 of 11
Flexibility
Moving joints through a wide range of motion (example: a gymnast doing a leg split) Flexibility can be measured by a sit-and-reach test.
6 of 11
Speed
Performing a movement of covering a distance in a short period of time (example: sprinting or speed skating) Speed can be measured by timing a 40 yard dash.
7 of 11
Muscular endurance
Using muscles repetitively without fatiguing (example: long-distance cycling or using a rowing machine) Muscular Endurance can be measured by a 60 second push-up test.
8 of 11
Balance
Controlling body positions while standing still or moving (example: a gymnast on a balance beam or a one leg deadlift pictured here)
9 of 11
Reaction time
How quickly an individual responds to a stimulus (example: playing tennis/table tennis or a baseball player swinging at a pitch)
10 of 11
Body composition
The ratio of muscle to fat in the body. Body Composition can be measured by skinfold calipers, bioelectric impedence, and hydrostatic weighing.
