Relax, Have a Coffee & Let's Define Aerobic Fitness

Page Content Links

I have seen many search requests recently for a definition of aerobic fitness. You have asked:

As a certified trainer and educator of both aerobics and fitness instructors, I believe that any exercise program I recommend should be based on existing - and proven - knowledge, safety and technique.

So please follow the list to ensure that we understand each other:

What is Fitness?

Fitness can be defined as a holistic feeling or state of wellbeing.

Physical fitness consists of many different body capabilities. The four most important are:

  1. Endurance
  2. Strength
  3. Flexibility
  4. Coordination

Fitness incorporates physical and mental health as well as emotional satisfaction and self-awareness.

The World Health Organization - WHO defines health in it's Constitution as «a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.»

All in all:
When body, mind and soul are in touch and our souls "fit" happily into our bodies - that's fitness!

Aerobic Exercise and Cardiovascular (Cardio) Exercise

AEROBIC is one of the most important physical fitness factors. It stems from Latin and means:

  1. AERO = Air = Oxygen
  2. BIC = Bio = Life

Any physical activity which requires increased oxygen intake is an Aerobic exercise - by definition.

Aerobic activity or exercise is therefore the same as cardiovascular (cardio) exercise as it:

Aerobic Exercise and Cardiovascular (Cardio) Exercise - Work that Body!
Anaerobic Exercise

Aerobic and Anaerobic Exercise - Do You Need Both?

Yes, you certainly do need both aerobic and anaerobic exercise.

You need aerobic exercise - for fat burning, and anaerobic exercise for strengthening the cardiovascular system.

So both are required and together they form a large part of physical fitness.

Whether it's going for a walk, cycling, swimming, dancing or any other activity that increases your heart-rate, so you feel slightly out of breath.

That's what makes aerobic fitness great fun!

Why not try an aerobic fitness workout right now?

Aerobic Fitness In-home Physical Exercise Program

To achieve optimum health in a relatively short time I recommend twice weekly:

  1. 20 min. Aerobic Activity with your favourite workout music:
    Use your own body weight - no extra weights required!
  2. 20 min. Muscle Strength Training and Stretching:
    Use these exercises - dips, pull-ups, squats, push - ups, ab curls and light hand weights for muscle isolation exercises e.g. bicep curls.Anaerobic Exercise - Let's Pump Iron!

Do and Do Not

  1. Do Not Over-do It!
  2. Do: A Complete Program -
    20 min. aerobic activity + 20 min. muscle strength and flexibility training = 40 minutes -
    DVD IN SHAPE choreography meets these requirements.
  3. Do: Complete the program twice a week = 80 minutes.
    That's not too much time to invest in your health and physical fitness, is it?
