The skill-related components of physical fitness include agility, balance, coordination, power, reaction time, speed, and strength. A student's natural ability in these areas greatly affects performance in fitness and athletic activities. While heredity plays a major role in each student's level of skill-related components, practice and coaching can improve performance. The following are examples of tests to assess skill related components of fitness.
- Dynamometers (hand, back, and leg)
- Cable tensiometer
- 1-RM Test (repetition maximum: bench press, standing press, arm curl, and leg press)
- Sit-ups (one sit up holding a weight plate behind the neck)
- Lateral pull-down
