Analysis of performance
Kayaking

Introduction
my name is Daniel Foy, I am a 15 year old teenager. I am a member of south mere kayaking boating lake club. I go three times a week to kayaking to become better at my sport and more able to do compete in rough water kayaking competitions etc. I also play football every Saturday and Sunday and do boxing after football on Saturdays. I need to be relatively able and fit to be able to partake in this variety of events. I have breaks throughout the week for my muscles to regain the lost energy etc. I eat healthy foods every week, but I also eat fatty foods and have a take away every Friday, which I know is bad so I’m taking this out of my diet.

I am pretty unfit at this moment in time but have the ability to continue and put in 100% into my physical aspects of sport (football, kayaking and boxing) I sometimes go to the gym to do muscle workouts to increase my muscular endurance.

I am a great lover football and go to Charlton regularly. I love to watch professional football and admire the way they play and what I need to do to get better, to achieve more in the sport. I don’t support Charlton, I support Chelsea but the price range is outrageous, so I decide to go see a cheap local team.

Health is a state of complete physical, social and mental well-being and not merely the absence of disease and infirmity. I enjoy the social sides of sports as well as the physical sides of sports. I do football because it’s an enjoyment of mine and I enjoy the competitive aspects of it.

Exercise is an activity done to primarily improve one’s health and physical fitness. I want to change my lifestyle according to weight side of things. I’m relatively overweight but with these changes in my diet plan and life I am looking to improve my fitness with more exercise.

Fitness is the ability to meet the demands of the environment. I need to ensure that i am able to maintain kayaking for long distances and maintain the physical muscular sides of it for as long as possible.

Performance is how well a task is completed. I want to improve my skill level in all three activities, especially kayaking. I want to improve as I kayaker but this will only happen is I train regularly and put the effort in.

Aesthetic appreciation is the ability to gain enjoyment from other people’s performance. I went to the Olympics to see rough water kayaking, where Britain won the gold and the experience as I aspire to be like that in the future.
