Different sports need different types of physical fitness.
A footballer has to be strong in the legs, with the ability to run in short
bursts of speed. A cricketer on the other hand needs the muscle endurance to be
on the field for six hours in a day without getting tired. Both of them need
good flexibility to avoid injury to their muscles.
Physical fitness consists of a
combination of muscle strength and power, heart and muscle endurance, speed
and agility, and of course, flexibility. Fitness also depends a lot
upon your diet, your sleep pattern and other habits.
You donít need expensive equipment to get fit for sport, and there are hundreds of different exercises to achieve the desired results. But the most important thing in getting fit, as in sport, is enjoying it.
