Sustained exercise done at an intensity which allows the muscles to utilize oxygen for energy. Examples of a
ANAEROBIC EXERCISE(Without Oxygen)
Exercise characterized by short bursts of activity, cannot be sustained for long periods of time and Oxygen is not used by to muscles for energy. Examples of anaerobic exercise are:Sprinting,Exercising above your target training zone
A workout that includes strength training, muscle endurance, flexibility and cardio respiratory conditioning.
CARDIORESPIRATORY FITNESS(Oxygen Flow)

CARDIOVASCULAR FITNESS(Blood Flow)
The ability of the heart and blood vessels to transport blood.
A circuit that combines weight training and aerobic exercise stations set in a sequential order, to give the participant a complete balanced workout.

How often a participant works out (per Week).
How much energy is exerted during a workout.
