Fitness in relation to health

The term "fitness" refers to a person's physical and mental well-being. Good health-related physical fitness (which includes cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, and body composition) is linked to reduced rates of cardiovascular disease, improved sleep quality, mood, and overall quality of life. It is suggested that Project participants perform fitness assessments for their pupils on a regular basis. Teachers and researchers will be able to better understand pupils' performance in different areas of physical fitness as a result of this. Teachers may use a set of globally recognised evaluation techniques recommended by the Project.
