Story Time – 10 Physical Skills

The 10 Physical Skills of fitness were coopted by Glassman from the creators of the Dynamax ball (which you fondly know as a wall ball!)

Biological:
Cardio-Respiratory Endurance
Stamina
Strength
Flexibility

These are built primarily through training, which many of us traditionally equate with fitness. But they’re not the complete picture, we also need.

Neurological:
Balance
Agility
Coordination
Accuracy

These are built primarily through practice, deliberately practicing skills that are tricky to master. These increase the brain-body connection.

Combined components of fitness:
Power
Speed

are both biological and neurological, and are best expressed through Sport – like The CrossFit Games Open, starting Feb 21st!
