Fitness With Out All The Work.... How Can That Be?

May 20, 2008
Fitness mainly refers to the body being in a healthy state. It is great to see that some people are making a commitment to a lifetime of good fitness, however it would be better if there were many more joining in.

According to the Bible, our body is our temple, so it is our own job to uphold it well. This is why we should take care of our bodies and minds, as this is really a gracious act.

This doesn't mean that it is easy; it will be hard to do. But no matter how challenging you may find it to be, you will find it that much more rewarding in the end. Do you want a happy and healthy life? It is only obtainable if you work hard for it.

Fitness exercise is essential to one's basic routine. An active fitness regiment increases the body's immunity and fights against heart disease, which is a major killer.

There are far too many unhealthy people walking the world today. Therefore, various diseases plague greater numbers of people. Although this is against the patients' wishes the hospitals still are attracting lots of clients and hence this business is prospering day by day.

As according to the Council of the President on Physical Fitness and the Surgeon General, the problem arises with teens since they are slacking on doing the recommended amount of activities. This group makes up 33 % of the American population.

They usually carry the attitude of neglecting physical fitness of these youths as they turn into adults. This means that these future adults will have weakened resistance and will suffer from different types of diseases.

The National Institute on Aging reported that only 58% of Americans are engaged in a lifetime fitness program, and they are only able to work fitness into their spare time. Only about 26 percent are regularly performing the lifetime fitness program. Of this group, most exercise three times a week.

The importance of a commitment to lifetime exercise is always being stressed. Most people usually neglect this commitment. Frequently, people used to disregard the fact that it can really do an enhancement on the value of one's life.

Most probably you have already heard that the common causes of deaths in this country are heart disease, stroke, accidents caused by unintended injuries, cancer and chronic lower respiratory ailments. These diseases are actually the five most common causes of deaths yearly as reported by the Center for Disease Control.

Have you ever really thought about it? These everyday killers could so easily be stopped beforehand! That would call for people to exercise more, however and they would need to be a part of a lifetime fitness program. These do not include the reported accidental deaths.

We are not only talking about physical exercise when we refer to a lifetime fitness program. This program also incorporates nutritional guidelines, which must be followed.

For sure, if you commit to a lifetime of physical fitness, your life will be extended and certainly be enjoyed. People can enjoy their lives more when they have a healthy mind and a healthy body.

The rest is up to you. Will you take care of your health and commit to a lifetime of fitness? If you abuse it you will suffer when you're older.
