Cardio respiratory endurance-ability to sustain moderate intensity, whole body activity for extended time periods Exercise-physical activity that is planned, structured, and repetitive, and that results in improvements is fitness Muscular endurance-ability to perform repeated, high intensity muscle contraction Muscular strength-maximum force applied with a single muscle contraction Physical activity-any movement that works the larger muscles of the body, such as arm, leg, and back muscles Physical fitness-the body's ability to carry out daily tasks and still have enough reserve energy to respond to unexpected demands Power-rate of force generation and work performance

Target heart rate (THR)-the range one's heart rate should be in during aerobic exercise or activity for maximum cardio respiratory endurance

Aerobic activities-continuous activity that requires large amounts of oxygen Aerobic fitness-activity that requires large amounts of oxygen for an extended period of time Anaerobic activities-activity that requires high levels of energy and is done for only a few seconds or minutes at a high level of intensity Functional fitness-a person's physical ability to function independently in life, without assistance Functional health-the ability to maintain high levels of health and wellness by reducing your risks of developing health problems Moderate-intensity physical activities-any activity or exercise that ranges in intensity from light-to-borderline-heavy exertion Self esteem-feelings of self-confidence and personal worth

Adherence-the ability to stick with a plan
Commitment-a pledge or a promise

Cholesterol-a fat-like substance that is produced in the liver and circulates in the blood Heredity-the sum of the physical and mental traits you inherit from your parents. Heredity can include heart disease, certain cancers, and other illnesses Moderate physical activity-any activity that ranges in intensity from light-to-borderline-exertion Risk factors-conditions or behaviors that are present and represent a potential threat to an individual’s well-being Regular physical activity-any activity or exercise performed most days of the week, preferably daily Self-concept-the view you have of yourself. Generally, people who are fit, healthy, and feel good about their health, are more likely to lead an enjoyable, productive life Stress-the mind and body’s response to the demands and threats of everyday life Triglyceride-the chemical form in which most fat exists in food as well as in the body

Vigorous physical activity-any activity or exercise that ranges in intensity from heavy-to-maximum exertion

Aerobic activities-continuous activity that requires large amounts of oxygen Aerobic fitness-activity that requires large amounts of oxygen for an extended period of time Anaerobic activities-activity that requires high levels of energy and is done for only a few seconds or minutes at a high level of intensity Endurance-the ability to keep up physical activity for an extended length of time Flexibility activities-an activity where the joints move through it's full range of motion Functional fitness-a person's physical ability to function independently in life, without assistance Functional health-the ability to maintain high levels of health and wellness by reducing your risks of developing health problems Moderate-intensity physical activities-any activity or exercise that ranges in intensity from light-to-borderline-heavy exertion Self esteem-feelings of self-confidence and personal worth
