Health Fitness Components • Body Composition-Amount of body fat expressed as a percentage. Apercentage of the relative amount of lean body weight and fat tissue in the body. • Cardiovascular Endurance- Extremely high efficiency in the functioning of the heart. Lungs, and blood vessels that results in the increased efficiency in the performance of continuous work involving large muscle groups • Flexibility- Range of movement possible at a joint or joints • Muscular Endurance-Ability of a muscle or muscle group to repeat muscular contractions against a force or to sustain a contraction over time. • Muscular Strength- Maximum amount of force that can be exerted Motor Performance Fitness Components • Agility-Ability to change direction rapidly with control • Balance-Ability to maintain equilibrium while stationary or moving • Coordination-Ability to execute movements smoothly and efficiently • Power-Ability to produce force at fast speed, a combination of strength and speed applied during a short periods Sport: an organized, competitive, entertaining, and skillful activity requiring commitment, strategy, and fair play, in which  a winner can be defined by objective means • Involves: o Physical prowess o Skill o Competition o Uncertain outcome perceived by skill o Requires movement • EX: basketball, tennis, football, soccer Physical exercise: a bodily activity that enhances or maintains physical fitness and overall health/wellness • Strengthens muscles • Cardiovascular system • Weight loss/maintenance • Enjoyment • Looking for an outcome, do it with a means to an end • EX:  cardiac rehabilitation, working out at a gym, zumba class Physical Education: takes place in an academic institution.  Generally involves a curriculum, goals/objectives and grading • EX: gym class in high school or college Recreation/Leisure: an activity of leisure, leisure being discretionary time.   • The “need to do something for recreation” seems to be an essential element of human biology and psychology • Often done for enjoyment, amusement, pleasure and considered fun • Free time means you choose to do it and you want to do it • EX: bike ride, jog, canoe, hike, play a game of basketball Dance: one of the earliest recorded forms of human movement • An art form that generally refers to movement of the body, usually rhythmic and to music, used as a form of  expression, social interaction, or presented in a spiritual or performance setting • Revolutionized like music • Universal  • EX: ballet, jazz, hip­hop, ballroom Exercise Physiology: the study of the effects of exercise on the body • Adaptations & responses o Muscular system o Respiration o Nervous system o Circulatory system • Long term effects­ length of time, through age and years • Short term effects – duration, what happens during the exercise or right after • Study topics o Environmental factors:   Running outside vs. inside  Altitude of skiing in Vermont vs. NJ o Disability & disease: physical or mental   Amputation and stroke o Athlete performance: how to develop the ultimate program to max their performance  o Children & pre­teen: difference between infancy and adult puberty.  How they develop and how fast it  takes o Sports medicine: prevent & treatment of athletic injuries  Dr. says stop running it hurts, they will suggest new shoes  Personal trainers, PTs, general doctors, athletes Kinesiology: study of human movement • “kines”­latin for very broad academic term • 4 major components o Efficiency, effort, work: input/output—exercise physiology  o Condition, control, skill: motor learning.  “under what conditions do we develop skills?” o Growth, development, form: motor development “how we grow, when do we develop” o Value, achievement, culture Biomechanics: studies the effects of natural laws and forces on the body in motion • Increase athlete/patient performance, and efficiency • Bio, computer science, math, videography, photography, physics, physiology, simulations • EX: sport: swimming­or topic footwear.  Clinical/rehab­ gait and posture analysis.  Prosthetics.  Product design  and enhancement Sport Management: the direction given to the setting or structure in which physical activity is offered to the client • Setting: anywhere that sport takes place o Arena, gym, public facilities.  Can be a participant or spectator • Structure: the logistics or actual sport of physical activity itself o Tennis, jogging, gold • Client: recognizes that there is an exchange of money for goods/services provided • Direction: takes certain types of personality to manage this business o Aggressive, organized, leader, Type A • To understand the depth of sport management, we need to recognize that “sport”  can take on various roles • Sport as:  o Activity: focus on leadership and organization of sport in its true form.  Leader, fitness professional, recreation and leisure, corporate fitness  Purest form, usually excel in a sport o Modality: uses sport/fitness/physical activity as a means to an end  Fitness, therapy, sports medicine, cardiac rehab, OT, PT  Sports help to accomplish something else  Managing a business o Service: focus is not on the product or specific service, but rather the delivery of the service.    Client is “purchasing” the service.    The Fees charged increase with level of service  Planet fitness vs. spa o Tennant: sport or activity is a small component in a larger enterprise.  Variety of activities take place in  which sport is just one tenant in the same location  Multi­tasking leaders, often work in various positions  Meadowlands complex­football takes place but also concerts, shows, horse racing, concessions,  transportation, ticket sales o Sales product: looks at the demand that is created form perceived needs. Promotions, direct sales, v
