What If I Told You There Was A Solution To Failed Diets And Workout Programs?

May 19, 2008
Basically, fitness means being healthy. If people committed to fitness throughout their lives it would be truly be wonderful.

The Bible reads that our bodies are our temples. It is our responsibility to preserve our bodies. This is why nurturing the body and mind through a healthy routine is a regal task.

Obviously, this involves effort and action. No matter how hard it will be the rewards are great. Only a few conscientious people have a happy and healthy life.

Your routine is desperately in need of a fitness exercise. With good fitness habits, people are able to ward off certain diseases like the killer heart disease.

It seems though, that more and more people seem to ignore this type of activity. This means that diseases are even more prevalent. It is to no surprise that hospital businesses are thriving due to gaining lots of clients, even if it is against the will of the patients.

In reality, the fitness and health activities for high school students as suggested by the Council of the President on Physical Fitness and the Surgeon General is not generally implemented nowadays. The activities relate to thirty three percent of the people across the U.S.

They usually carry the attitude of neglecting physical fitness of these youths as they turn into adulthood. Due to weak resistance, the number of people suffering from several diseases will increase.

According to the National Institute on Aging, only 58% of Americans engage in a program of lifetime fitness. Also, this fitness program is completed only during their spare time. The lifetime fitness program is done by roughly only 26 percent on a regular basis. Frequently they only engage in the fitness program about three times a week.

There is a constant emphasis put on committing to a lifetime of exercise, but it does little good as people still don't do it. People very often do not consider that fitness can add value to their lives.

You are probably familiar with heart disease, stroke, accidents caused by unintended injuries, cancer and chronic lower respiratory ailments. These illnesses constitute the 5 leading causes of death, according to the Center for Disease Control.

Just think that over. These are common causes of death, and they are all preventable. This can only happen if people concentrate on fitness and exercise and make a life change. Accidental deaths cannot be included. The lifetime fitness program does not relate only to physical exercise. The program also includes a diet that needs to be followed.

A lifetime of good physical fitness habits can increase your lifespan. And most certainly be enjoyed. If you have a healthy mind as well as body, you will have a more enjoyable life and you stop and smell the roses.

The final decision lies with the individual. Will you care about your health and make a commitment to a lifetime of fitness? Or would you rather laze about and do what feels good and face the consequences of an indulgent lifestyle later?
