Physical Fitness

One of the aims of the cadet program is promote Physical Fitness.  In order to help the cadets achieve success in physical fitness, it is important to teach them how to set personal fitness goals and create an activity plan to help them achieve those goals.

Physical fitness is a general concept.  Two major categories are considered: general fitness; a state of health and well-being, and specific fitness; a task-oriented definition based on the ability to perform specific aspects of sports. Physical fitness is generally achieved through correct nutrition, exercise, hygiene and rest.
