Treatment of infidelity occurs in stages:

Stage1: Address the effects of Infidelity – in this stage, therapist advice both spouses on the effects of infidelity in a relationship. Being aware of this, both spouses will do their best to ensure there is no infidelity in their relationship
Stage 2: Setting Boundaries – here, couples are advised not to engage in conflicts beyond family boundaries.
Step 3: self care – after the aftermath of an affair; couples are advised to take care of their physical and spiritual bodies to avoid additional problems related to poor health and depression.
Stage 3: Examining the Content – therapists tend to discuss with the couples the factors that led to the affair. This is the longest part of the treatment due to the allegations brought by both partners. In this stage, the most discussed issues are four: 1) plenty communication with the spouse and adequate time 2) outside issues such as family, work and finances 3) Issues within the family for the betrayal spouse 4) and some basic issues.
Stage 4: Moving on – This is the last stage in the treatment. Here, spouses are encouraged to apologize and outline and discuss the issues that led to the affair. This does not necessarily mean that the couple should re-marry, but reach to a happy conclusion for both so that they can move on with their lives.

Conclusion

Several factors compel an individual to engage in practices of infidelity. Certain demographic characteristics and personality trait trends exist, though some researchers question many commonly held assumptions. Cyber-sex and online affairs are a relatively new area of knowledge for therapists, and the field’s understanding is still rather limited. However, therapists must treat these affairs with the same level of seriousness as an in-person affair. Therapists will 41 continue to encounter situations that are new and uncharted territory as the years go on that challenge the long-held beliefs and practices in therapy related to infidelity. Therapists will likely never see eye to eye about factors involved in an affair and how to properly treat couples. However, the work of numerous researchers can provide a solid framework for therapists working with couples facing this very difficult situation.

Treatment of Infidelity

From a clinical view it may be helpful for couples to understand betrayal during a process not in one-time event. It is mostly found that unfaithful couples show improvement during treatment more than faithful couples. Nevertheless, it is common that couples who had an affair and did not keep this affair as a secret improved more in satisfaction than others. Also, they concluded that the unfaithful spouse is more distressed than the spouse who is not involved and both partners have similar advances in therapy. The spouse who is not involved in infidelity is more distressed during therapy and also receive more gains in treatment compare to the betrayal spouse. Recent studies on treatments and infidelity designed the case study to find the efficiency of step-by-step, forgiveness-oriented approach to help recovered couples from infidelity. The first step of healing was deal with the influence of the infidelity. The second step covers the meanings and framework of infidelity and third steep helps the couples carry on after infidelity. At the end of treatment, most of the participants show a high level of forgiveness reacting to the infidelity. In another exploratory study, Atkins et al (2005a) tested the treatment of infidelity using Traditional Behavioral Couple Therapy (TBCT) and Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy (IBCT). Their participants were 19 couples who experienced infidelity.

They compared the level of distress and course of treatment in couples who experienced infidelity and in couples seeking therapy for another reasons. They concluded that at pretreatment stage, the couples who involved infidelity suffer more than other couples. At the end of treatment the result of infidelity couples were equal with the couples without affairs. Case (2005) focused on a treatment model of infidelity that is based on a multi-dimensional process of apology and forgiveness in which spouse works toward regain trust through specific tasks. This study concluded that many couples after experiencing infidelity in their relationship work toward balancing the relationship.
Cyber affairs require the same type of therapy as “real” affairs, but with a couple of important distinctions. The therapist must not brush off the cyber-affair as any less real and damaging to a marriage than a physical affair. Non involved spouses feel betrayed, angry, and suffer the same loss of self-esteem as spouses in other types of affairs. In treating the affair, the therapist needs to work on the typical elements of “real” affairs with an exploration of the underlying causes, opening up communication and rebuilding trust.

Obsession

This commonly happens when the faithful spouse demands from the betrayal of every detail and circumstance of the infidelity. A lot of psychologist say that the faithful spouse tend to experience flashbacks and imaginations, pondering into the details of the affair and close monitoring of their partner. The faithful spouse become more obsessed after discovering the reasons of infidelity and most of them end up changing their physical appearances and lifestyle to attract the attention of their partners. Moreover, the faithful partner becomes more interrogative by knowing the whereabouts of his/partner, phone calls, computer and friends.

Retaliation

The innocent spouse may attempt to do everything so as to regain control of their marriage. They tend to threaten the extramarital partner. Moreover, they tend to engage in extramarital relationship to express anger they feel to their partners.

Lack of affection within a relationship
Affection is the backbone of a relationship. When there is no affection, the relationship is described as dead. The faithful spouse may loose affection to the betrayal one but still in a relationship. This is not healthy at all especially when there are kids. Even if the couple does not divorce, they are forced into new roles where the hurt spouse must become the guardian of the marriage and the offending spouse remains on trial. This changes the couple dynamic into interrogation and defensiveness instead of the mutual edification that comes from kindness and gratitude and service to one another.

Family separation

Effects of extramarital affairs cannot be overemphasized, in that it affects every member of the family either the one cheated or who cheats and also the children. The financial or the economic status of the family is affected. This is because the little income for the family would have to be shared to feed the family members and the one(s) outside. Man’s extravagant spending for his outside lovers may prevent him from taking care of his family. A spouse involving in extramarital affairs will not have much time for his/her partner and this may lead to loneliness on the parts of the cheated one. This is common when there are children in the family. Here, children tends to suffer the most since they will be separated from one of their parent incase of divorce. They tend to experience depression especially if violence between the two parents arises.

Consequences of infidelity

Lack of affection

For a relationship to be healthy, affection from both spouses must be evident. When the affection is gone, the relationship ceases to exist. This means that one of the spouses will tend to have an affair to fill in the gap that is missing. In other cases, both spouses tend to have an outside affair due to the collapse of affection.

Having discussed the key causes of infidelity, it is important to discuss the impact of having an affair to a relationship and even children in case of any.

Divorce

Almost 90% of the marriages marred with infidelity ends up finished. This is because one of the partners feels that they have not been treated fairly and decides to move on with their life. However, not all marriages with infidelity end up with a divorce.

Loss of trust
If the marriage isn’t dissolved after issues of infidelity, issues of lack of trust arise. The partner with infidelity issues is most likely not to be treated well and trusted by the other spouse. This occurs due to damage of marital relationship. Issues of over protection by one spouse and limits may arise. Trust issues may make the “cheating” spouse to ask for a divorce.

Violence

This is attributed to rage and anger towards the other partner. This is the most dangerous outcome of infidelity since we have witnessed even cases of murders arising due to violence linked to infidelity.

Depression

This is likely to happen to the faithful spouse. They tend to feel unloved and useless. They develop low self esteem towards themselves and they might even end up committing suicide. This becomes worse when the unfaithful spouse chooses to divorce while the other one opts to remain

Gender and Infidelity

Men are more upset when they find out that their partners have been engaging in sexual infidelity. On the other hand, women are more upset when they find out that their partners are engaging in emotional infidelity. After men find out this, they tend to engage in sexual infidelity as revenge to their partners and vice versa.

Still on this factor of gender, men tend to engage in infidelity levels compared to women. They have multiple partners outside their marriage and have a permissive attitude towards affairs. They also have desires to e involved in infidelity issues. Nevertheless, the cases of women who engage in infidelity are rising at a higher rate.

Marital stability

Marital stability as also been outlined as a key contributor to infidelity. In cases where a marriage is marred with violence by a partner, the other partner engages in infidelity claiming to seek peace. This is common in men than in women. This factor is also linked to the above factor “happiness in relationship”. Lack of time of another spouse comes under this factor. However, when a relationship is highly religious committed, they develop a negative attitude towards infidelity and thus low chances of cheating.

Sexual and emotions dissatisfactions

This is the major cause that partners engage in infidelity. This type of infidelity is more prevalent in men than in women. This is caused by moods in sexual behaviors as well as excitations. Men who engage in sex in positive mood seem not to care on the outcomes of unprotected sex. These individuals are likely to engage in extramarital sex. Moreover, men who have high sexual excitability have high chances of engaging in affairs than women. Infidelity may also arise in cases where a partner is not sexually satisfied. This ends up seeking external sex for satisfactions. This can also be caused in cases where one of the partners has low self esteem sexually and emotionally. One of the spouse tends to leave marriage to get what he is missing. This is common in both men and women. There are low cases of infidelity where both partners are sexually satisfied. In addition, unhappy relations have been linked to the higher levels of infidelity. 72% of the individuals who have been linked with issues of infidelity have shouted out that unhappiness in relationship compelled them to having extramarital partners. However, there are also men who are sexually satisfied but still engage in infidelity issues.

Attachment style

This is another factor that has been attributed to the increased levels of infidelity in our society. Securely attached adults balance well between independence and dependence. Anxiously attached individuals cling, act needy, and fear being left out. They feel unloved and have issues with trust. Those with avoidant attachment style withhold their emotions, lack trust of others, and avoid being dependent on others for emotional support. who often have avoidant attachment styles have high chances of engaging in infidelity. This is because individuals with attachment styles spend most times in seeking solutions to their current problems and engage in high rates of infidelity. Research studies have revealed that individuals with avoidant attachment styles are likely to engage in extramarital relationships while those with anxious attachment style have the likelihood of having already engaged in infidelity.

Personality and infidelity

Personality has been recently linked to infidelity. Personality occurs in two major ways: individuals with low or high agreeableness and individuals with high or low consciousness. Married individuals with low agreeableness and consciousness tend to engage in extra marital relationships since they are not concerned with issues such as unprotected sex and the outcomes of infidelity. 90% of partners who engage in infidelity have high chances that they engage in unprotected sex. Individuals with high levels of consciousness and agreeableness tend not to engage into infidelity issues and can be highly rated as faithful. This is because they are concerned with the outcome of unprotected sex and the impact of infidelity in marriage.

Income Level and employment

The level of income and employment status has also been linked to infidelity. Individuals who earn huge salaries far much than their spouses tend to engage in infidelity. This is because they have more than enough to spend. This is more likely to happen if a woman earns a lot of salary than her partner. Employment status has also contributed to the increasing cases of infidelity. This is common when one partner is employed and the other one is not. The employed one tends to dictate on the unemployed partner and does what he/she wants. This is because lack of earning and dependence on one partner makes them feel frightened. This is common on both partners.

Education Level and Infidelity

The level of education has been linked to be a key cause of infidelity in the modern society. Highly educated individuals are more likely to be engaged in infidelity issues (atkins, 2001). According to the findings of Forste and Tansfer (1996) education has a significant correlation with infidelity in married women who are differ in case of degree and their partner’s education level. In cases where a woman is more educated than her partner, the likelihood of infidelity is high than when a man is more educated than his spouse. Individuals who are highly educated are likely to be involved in infidelity issues than those with lower levels of education. This is because more educated people have more liberal about sex in general

Factors contributing to affairs:

not understanding what relational love isinability to communicate feelings or needs not having the verbal skills to solve problems together not being able to accommodate to one another’s needs or interests not really knowing the person (your partner)not being able to cope with cultural or ethnic differences

Despite these types of infidelity, there are also 5 types of affairs:

Conflict avoidance affair- most affairs fall under this category. A lot of couples have avoided discussing some issues that could save their marriage. They tend to shy away from discussing these issues since they feel that they will end up with conflict. For instance, if there is an instance of sex dissatisfaction, couples will tend to ignore this issue. This leads to one of the spouse to have an affair.Intimacy Avoidance Affair - Married couples whose emotional connection is through frequent and intense conflict will often become involved in an affair. These couples are the mirror opposite of those who avoid conflict. Problems pile up, one on top of the other. Issues are not resolved, and the marriage erodes. An affair is an easy way to escape the conflict and problems in the marriage.Split self affair – individuals under this category have fought had and made every sacrifices to save on their marriage. However, there is one spouse who has long term infidelity. The partner who is having the affair concentrates on deciding between the marriage and the affair partner. This mainly happens with men compared to women. Sexual Addiction Affair – sex addicts use sex over and over again to express their anger and disappointments. They are just similar to Alcoholics. Exit Affair – This is where one of the spouses uses infidelity as a justification to get out of a marriage. The spouse tends to blame the faithful partner of not communicating. Cyber Affairs - Internet affairs pose an interesting situation for couples, and for couple’s therapists to deal with. The availability of these types of affairs pose an incredible amount of opportunity for both men and women to become involved in interactions that typically involve sexually suggestive messages and pictures being exchanged, and even mutual masturbation through webcams. Some participants deny these behaviors are really affairs because there is no physical contact and they never actually meet one another. However, many of these affairs have an emotional connection. Also, even when the cyber affair is purely sexual, the impact on one’s spouse can be just as devastating as an in-person affair. Engaging in online affairs and other cyber-sex activities results to a person’s partner to feel insecure, in need of help for the relationship, and to exhibit feelings of trauma, just as in a “real” physical affair. Indeed, Mileham (2007) noted that about one-third of all divorces now include allegations regarding cybersex activities and/or online affairs. The involved person who engages in internet infidelity develops a pattern of lying about the activity, decreases communication with the noninvolved spouse, decreases sexual activity with the spouse, and devotes less time to the family in general. It becomes a distraction to everyday issues. Atwood notes it is much easier to go online and find emotional support from strangers than it is to face real issues in a marriage. People who participate in cyber-sex can be classified into three categories: 1) recreational, 2) at-risk, and 3) compulsive. The compulsive user can be obsessive, and at times, this progression happens rapidly. Cyber-flirting is the first and the common type of cyber-sex. This is done online through the use of explicit videos and instant messages. Cyber-sex involves the exchange of sexual conversations and videos and even pictures. For some, this cyber-sex takes the place of sex with their spouse. Nonetheless, at this stage, most individuals believe that it is not affecting their relationship with their spouse as it is not real. Cyber-affairs result when the two people involved begin to have an emotional connection. They may spend hours chatting back and forth or writing emails. They may speak on the phone, and it may even progress to meeting in person. Internet affair easily promotes these kind of affairs because: Cyber-infidelity is anonymous. The privacy of this forum allows people to open up to others with little fear of getting caught by your spouse. Internet activity involves a great deal of projection. Users can easily project an ideal self from a computer screen and others can see and believe what they want about the other person. This has made the levels of infidelity in our society to rise. The tendency for people to engage in triangulated relationships as a way to reduce tension and anxiety within a relationship is a well-known phenomenon. For some people, the object of the triangle may be children or a job. The lure of the internet is that it offers a 24/7 way to reach out to others to flirt anonymously, to achieve this type of tension reduction in an almost effortless way, and to greatly increase a person’s ability to engage in these triangles. Moreover, Individuals with issues of intimacy are more engaged in cyber-sex. The basic issues that keep them from fully connecting to their spouse makes the seemingly quick and easy intimacy of cyber relationships attractive. The ordeals that spouses tend to shy from discussing become easier to share through the internet. This is usually brought by poor communication. The advancement of emails and chat rooms have also facilitated to this problem. This has increased levels of cyber affairs in the modern society.

It is commonly reported that those who have been caught in this type of relationship say that there spouse do not give them enough time as well as love. Persons who have been involved in this type of infidelity often say that it’s just a friendship. This �friendship’ is described as infidelity or emotional betrayal more particularly when a partner cares more about the �friendship than the marriage. Most women are usually engaged in this type of infidelity compared to men.

The second thing that causes sexual infidelity is lack of sex satisfaction in primary marriage.

Therefore, a spouse will seek what is elusive to find in their marriage to an outsider. Revenge sex also came up as a reason why people cheat. This occurs when one partner engages in extra marital sex to get back to their partners who have cheated before or have wronged them in a way. Sexual infidelity is not only caused by sexual intercourse but also sexual activities such as online sex, and kissing. Infidelity can also be described as violating the expectations of a marriage by being drawn emotionally and sexually towards another person.

Point Strategy To Physical Fitness

Achieving ideal fitness requires total dedication. It's not something you achieve by giving a half-hearted effort, or on a part-time basis. You need a plan and the determination to make it work. The following article lays out the blueprint for that plan, in the hopes that you can use it to achieve the level of fitness you desire.
1. Consider the importance of consistency.
Your body is a machine and keeping it conditioned with regular workouts will yield much greater results than sporadic exercising. If you set yourself in tune with a regular workout schedule, your entire metabolic system will function better, your sleep will improve and you will reach your goals at a predictable rate. All of this will work toward the overall success of your fitness program, and keep you more focused on it.
2. Determine your best exercise routine.
Trying to force certain exercises into your program that you just don't enjoy will cause burnout fast; you need to at least be into what you are doing to keep yourself motivated. Just because one routine promises better results doesn't necessarily mean you should focus on it. You are in this for the long term and need to design a program with specific aspects that work toward your goals while still keeping you interested and content.
3. Team up with a friend, to keep you both dedicated.
Employing the buddy system is a great way to ensure you stick with your obligations, for better or worse. When you might feel like playing hooky and heading for a movie instead of the gym, knowing how that would disappoint your partner should keep you doing the right thing every time, and vice-versa. Having someone who understands what you are going through and where you are at can also be a big help and go a long way toward the ultimate goal.
4. Keep the inspiration going.
You may find your motivation fizzling when you get about half way to where you want to be. Total dedication to a fitness program can be grueling, and once you have seen some results, you may be inclined to slow it down. Understand that such an attitude could very well see you back into your "old shape" or up to your "old weight" quickly. Remind yourself of the numerous benefits you stand to gain from staying with your program, and use whatever means are necessary to keep you going!
5. Listen to the professionals.
You can ask your physician or go online for quality health information that can help you toward your fitness goals. Different body types, ages, metabolisms and limitations mean different workout programs will be more effective for some people than others. These goals you are working toward are far too important to set yourself up for failure or injury, so check in with a professional source for optimum results. Reaching your fitness goals may not be easy, but it is certainly well worth it once you get there!
Consider the five essential strategies discussed here, and formulate a successful fitness strategy that will fit your lifestyle and help you to achieve the optimum health and fitness you have been wanting.

So, Follow the above tips and it will be helpful to you to increase your physical fitness.

Flexibility

The range of movement of the joints is extremely important to be able to move quickly and easily. Flexibility also allows the body to assume more natural positions when sitting and standing, helping maintain good posture. As we age our joints stiffen up - it's just a part of life. But, preventing the stiffening of joints can create a healthier (and pain-free) body. Stretching the body helps loosen the muscles and ligaments and maintain the health of the bones and cartilage that make up the joints. Flexibility also increases physical performance and reduces the risk of injuring yourself in normal and exhaustive activities.

When creating workout routines keep all five of these components in mind to allow yourself a great workout that benefits your whole body and makes you feel great.

Balance is important

If you are looking to become physically fit, you need to consider all of the five components of physical fitness. You have probably met someone at the gym who can bench press twice his own body weight, but cannot jog to his car without getting out of breath. On the other hand, you may also know someone that could twist herself into a pretzel, but struggles lifting a few pounds. In order to be truly physically fit, you need to address all five components of physical fitness. Balance your workout so all components are involved in order to achieve maximum results. For instance, start your workout with stretching to improve flexibility. Then spend time on the treadmill to improve your cardio/respiratory fitness. Afterwards, work with varying weights for strength and endurance. With all of this, consider your own body makeup and limitations, and you will soon start to see an improvement in your physical health.

Body composition

The fifth and last of the five components of physical fitness is the body type. This component is variable, since it depends upon the individual. Someone who is large and muscular has a different composition than someone who is dainty or petite. Bone structure, genetics, and even gender can play a role in this part of the five components of physical fitness. You have to remember to take this last component into consideration when tailoring a workout for yourself. A petite size zero lady would embark upon a very different routine than a male body builder. 

Strength

Number three of the five components of physical fitness is the strength element. This component looks at the strength of the muscles, which involves the ability that your muscles have to exert force against resistance. Many people consider strength to be the most important of the five components of physical fitness. It is often associated with weight training, such as the number of pounds that you are able to bench press.

Endurance

Number two of the five components of physical fitness is the endurance portion. This component looks at the endurance of the muscles, which involves how well your muscles can lift a weight repeatedly. In weight training, this would be considered the number of repetitions that you can do with a given weight. This can also be applied to other exercises, such as your ability to do repeated pushups, pull-ups, or squats. When many athletes consider endurance, they picture distance runners, such as those who participate in marathons, but from the point of view of the five components of physical fitness, endurance can apply to any sport that has repetitive actions.

Cardio/respiratory

Number one of the five components of physical fitness is the cardio/respiratory element. This component looks at the capacity and the capability of the lungs and the heart. Two major organs of the body, the lungs and heart need to work in harmony to deliver the oxygen and other nutrients to the cells throughout your body. The lungs are responsible for adding oxygen to the blood and removing carbon dioxide, while the heart is responsible for pushing that blood throughout the body. From the point of view of the five components of physical fitness, cardio/respiratory exercise should improve the function of your heart and lungs so that the rest of your body will work better as well. In general, any type of aerobic exercise can help with this component of physical fitness. 

Body Composition

Body composition is the ratio of fat to fat-free mass in the body. Individuals who have a lower ratio of fat to fat-free mass are typically healthier, have more flexibility, and feel better all over. The less fat an individual has on their body, the more calories their body burns even when at rest.

Muscular Strength

When working out with weights you are using your muscles, even creating small tears in your muscles (this is why you're so sore the day after lifting weights), but these small tears heal and make your muscles stronger. Lifting weights doesn't mean that you have to bulk up. Instead, lift lighter weights and this will tone your muscles instead of making them grow extremely large. Whether you are just looking to tone or are looking to bulk up, only lift a weight that does not interfere with your form or technique execution. If you do, you could end up seriously hurting yourself.

Components Of Physical Fitness

Physical fitness isn't just about working out, or even just doing cardio exercises. Physical fitness is about being lean, flexible, muscular, and strong - about motor fitness skills, about agility, about coordination and balance. Having a balanced body will help in so many areas of your life. Exercises and stretching, such as with Yoga and Pilates, can increase your core and abdominal strength and give you a lean waist. Weight training increases your ability to burn fat and increases your metabolism. Cardio fitness increases heart health, circulation, and stamina. Stretching increases flexibility. Everything works together to create a lean and fit body and focusing on all aspects of physical fitness will give you a well-rounded and healthy lifestyle.

Attributes to Boost Your Physical Fitness

Fitness is commonly misunderstood as a process of maintaining six pack abs or having a good muscle tone. But, it is actually about keeping the body in a good condition by maintaining moderate levels of energy and strength in the body. The following article is all about what an individual needs to know about fitness in order to stay healthy.

Physical fitness: Fitness is defined as a set of attributes that people have or achieve that help in their ability to perform physical activities. In simpler words, being fit is not about doing activities like running or lifting weights, but it is the ability to do them for long time, with high levels of intensity and having sustained levels of energy. It is about performing normal or high intensity activities without having a trace of fatigue.

Five attributes of fitness: As the definition says, there are attributes that constitute for fitness. The main components of fitness are broadly classified in to five types. Let's look into them in detail.

1. Cardiovascular endurance: Cardiovascular endurance, also termed as cardio-respiratory endurance, is the ability of the body's circulatory and respiratory system to supply oxygenated blood during sustained physical activity.

As our body needs more oxygen during increased physical activity, all the parts in the above mentioned systems like the heart, blood vessels, lungs, etc., should perform more in order to pump more oxygenated blood to different body muscles. Cardiovascular endurance helps in improving their ability to work more. By practicing cardiovascular exercises one can strengthen and increase the performance of these parts, so that they gain the ability to function well even during sustained physical activity.

Some of the exercises which can boost your cardiovascular endurance are brisk walking, jogging, cycling, swimming.

2. Muscular strength: Muscle strength is the ability of the body muscles to exert force against resistance. The more the muscle strength is, the more will be the amount of force exerted to do the activities with ease. We can improve our muscle strength by building and making them stronger.

The ability of the body to lift moderate amounts of weight against the gravity can determine the muscle strength of a person. Muscle strength can be gained by practicing weight lifting exercises like shoulder press, weighted squat, biceps curl and also by doing push-ups.

3. Muscular endurance: Muscular endurance is the ability of the muscle to continue the muscle strength. Right muscular endurance helps the muscles in working for the long periods of time with no fatigue.

Muscular endurance is highly essential for the people who play sports and for those who use their arms and legs to do activities. One can improve muscular endurance by performing regular exercises such as cycling, push-ups, sit-ups, squats, etc. But, unlike muscle strength exercises, they will not shape the muscles.

4. Flexibility: Flexibility is defined as the ability of body's various joints to move through a wide range of motions. Improving body's flexibility improves the ease of movement during different physical activities, reduces muscle tension, gives good posture, and helps prevent injuries.

In order to improve flexibility one needs to try exercises such as swimming, yoga, muscle stretching exercises, etc. that enable the body to become flexible in different angles.

5. Body composition: Body composition refers to the amount of fat and muscle that your body is made up of. Proper balance of fat and muscle mass needs to be maintained in order to stay healthy. Body composition depends on the exercise, food and lifestyle patterns of an individual. For instance, the exercises meant to improve muscular endurance result in reduced fat and enhanced muscle mass.

These are the five attributes which a person needs to achieve in order to be physically fit. Balanced physical exercises along with a healthy diet enables a person achieve physical fitness.

Aerobic Endurance

While muscle endurance is needed for your muscles to perform repetitive actions, aerobic (cardiorespiratory) endurance is needed to perform physical activity and sports. Specifically aerobic endurance is determined by the ability of your heart to move oxygenated blood through your body and to working muscles. People with little or no aerobic endurance tire quickly when performing simple daily tasks such as climbing a flight of stairs or playing with their children. Increase you aerobic endurance or stamina through regular exercise. As your fitness level increases you will have to intensify or vary your workout to gain the maximum benefit.

Flexibility- Defined as the ability to move your joints or muscles through their full range of motion. Your flexibility is determined by a number of factors including joint structure, age, activity level, body composition and strength of opposing muscle groups. This ability is one of the components of physical fitness and needed to perform day to day activities and enjoy an active lifestyle.

Information About Physical Fitness

National Physical Fitness and the Sports Month is now reaching a halfway point and many people will find themselves asking, "What exactly is the definition of physical fitness?” We all have our own idea of what it means to be physically fit. For some people, fitness is measured by weight, others by strength and still others consider endurance a sign of physical fitness. To determine how fit you are and find ways to improve your fitness level you must first understand that true fitness is measured by multiple components.

Body Composition- Many people confuse body composition with body weight or body fat. In reality your body composition is actually defined as the percentage of fat, bone and muscle in your body. In relation to physical fitness, the amount of fat compared to bone and muscle is measured to determine body fat percentage and overall health. Too much body fat increases the chances of illness and disease. Conversely men and women who have too little body fat risk decreased exercise performance and severe health complications. The ideal body fat percentage varies by individual based on gender, age, body type and heredity. Finding the level that is right for you is an important factor in determining overall health and fitness.

Muscular Strength and Endurance- Strength and endurance are two separate components both of which contribute to physical fitness. Your muscular strength is your ability to life or exert maximum force in a single effort. Increase muscle strength through weight or strength training which increases muscle mass. This increases your body's capacity to burn calories which aids in weight loss and lowering your body fat ratio. Muscular endurance on the other hand does not measure how "much" you can lift or move rather how "long" you can perform repetitive actions. Both strength and endurance are important in maintaining healthy fitness levels.
