It becomes the thirteenth staging of the Tiger Classic, and athletes had been offered the risk to win an Elite Pro Card.
The IFBB hailed the occasion as “every other step forward” for the game in Romania and found out organizers Mihai Tigora, and Tongan has already been operating on further tasks. The fitness world seems to use the concept Health-Related Fitness like a generic fitness principle – interchangeable with others like “Physical Fitness,” “Health and Fitness,” or simply “Fitness.”
While all of these terms can be included under the broad term Health and Physical Fitness, they individually refer to different aspects – both generic and specific. Unfortunately, references to these and other fitness-related terms are often vague, while consistency in their intended use is meager at best; there is a kind of “generally accepted” use for them, but individuals often rely on their own interpretation can lead to confusion.
With that said, does Health-Related Fitness infer fitness employing good health? Not quite. That is why we need to understand a little more behind these words before digesting the definition.
How did the term Health-Related Physical Fitness come about?
That is a good question. One could probably ask what this concept is all about – can we not simply use the terms “Fitness” or “Physical Fitness” instead?” Why Health “Related”?
The main reason stems from the fact that most health and fitness terms are used inconsistently and often refer to different concepts or notions. After the 1996 report from the US Surgeon General (Physical Activity and Health; a report of the Surgeon General), there was a move to try and address the alarming rise in obesity among the general American public.
Studies and initiatives required standardization among clinicians, health practitioners, and fitness trainers to grapple with the task at hand. Enter “Health-Related Physical Fitness,” a working term to address the general state of health among the public. Being a Health and Fitness Professional, it is my job to understand terms and definitions that are commonplace in this industry and keep abreast of evolving trends. Through my experience, I have found that several terms deserve a little more clarification than that which they are granted.
