My Fitness Training Program The sport I take part in is football .I play regularly for the school team. I am 15 years old, this is important because when designing a training programme you need to consider that being a boy my body wont be fully developed until I am about 20 years old. This means that my bones won't be fully-grown yet and my muscles will also still be developing. My current health is good. I have no illnesses and currently have no injuries. My current fitness level is above average. Average fitness level is the average level of fitness of the people of my age group. I have a high muscular strength and power but a low flexibility level.

However, because my parents wont buy a swimming pool for our garden I still have to walk the 3 or 4 miles to get to the pool.
