Your awareness and use of components of physical fitness determines how effectively you design or follow a workout plan. A workout plan is a step-by-step approach of mixing the basic eleven components of fitness to reach wellness, health or fitness related goals.
Details of a plan and the components of that plan make one plan safe, effective and efficient while making another program unsafe, ineffective and inefficient.
The basic eleven components of physical fitness fall into two categories.
- Directly related to health
- Related to sports performance

Notice that the common goals and advertised programs like weight loss and bodybuilding as well as pain management programs related to low back pain or shoulder and knee injury are not part of these eleven components. Those are goals that could be reached based on how you design or follow a program that uses these eleven elements.
Since you are unique, a perfect plan for you, requires your direct involvement and input into the program design.
Following an already made workout plan regardless of how well it was designed at the very best can come close to what you need to reach your goal.
The need for customization is one reason I emphasize awareness and knowledge of how things work in X5Wellness instead of telling you what to do.
As you consider physical fitness and sports performance, think of many athletes who fail to reach contentment and fulfillment in their personal lives and those who lose their health because of their athletic performance.
They are good examples of how you can be physically fit and perform at the height of sports and still struggle with wellness and its components.
Wellness includes non-physical aspects of life which influences the physical components.
