Fitness is the physical and mental process of working toward specific athletic, performance or training goals through a regimented program. Research shows that to significantly improve sports performance, overall athleticism and physical ability, athletes must complete fitness sessions in addition to playing their sport. Fitness refers to the workouts, exercises and drills they perform outside of organized practices to improve their Strength, Speed, Conditioning and Flexibility, as well to rehab and prevent injury. Maximize your fitness with advice from today's top coaches and elite athletes.
