"Flexibility is the ability to move a joint through its full range of motion (ROM)" states source M3l3. Two ways to improve ROM are static(still) and dynamic(motion) stretching.
M3l1-M3L3 states, "There are three different types of training that can and should be incorporated into any physical plan; cardiovascular, resistance, and flexibility." 'Cardio' intensity can range from low to high, with each level of intensity decreasing the time of each workout. "Resistance training is an important part of an exercise program." States M3l2, this training is designed to improve your muscle strength through body weight or free weights such as dumbbells.

How Health and Fitness is Assessed
M3l4 suggests to take measurements as a start to assessing your physical state, this includes, weight, RHR, BMI, and body size.
After taking your all of these necessary measurements you can start assessing your fitness level. Our source M3L5 states, "Fitness is typically assessed in the areas of aerobic fitness, muscular strength and endurance, and flexibility." They also suggest a warm up to decrease risk of injury. According to M3L5 there are 4 main things to assess; one mile run time, sit/curl-up test, push up test, and sit and reach.
It is important to exercise and it is equally important to consume calories. But M4L4 suggest to keep in mind the term 'Caloric Balance' that is demonstrated by the info graphic below.
During an interview M4L4 stated, "Calories are burned in two different ways. The first way your body burns calories is by maintaining your heart beat, digesting your food, creating new cells, and all other processes that keep your body alive and well. The number of calories burned per day in keeping your body alive is called the basal metabolic rate.
