Fitness is a general state of health and well-being, more specifically, the ability to perform aspects of sports, and daily activities. Physical fitness is generally achieved through proper nutrition, moderate-vigorous physical exercise, and sufficient rest and recovery.
Fitness is early stages was defined as the capacity to carry out the day’s activities without fatigue. However, with changes in lifestyles fitness is now considered a measure of the body’s ability to function efficiently and effectively in work and leisure activities, to be healthy, to resist diseases, increase in metabolic rate, and to meet emergency situations.
Fitness is attributed to person who passes significant aerobic or anaerobic ability, i.e. strength or endurance.
A well rounded fitness program will improve a person in all aspects of fitness, rather than one, such as only cardio/respiratory endurance or only weight training.
Put exercise on your to-do list. Regular exercise will manage many health symptoms. Exercises such as circuit training, Cardio Vascular Exercises, Resistance training and yoga burn calories and fat, prevent weight gain and can counter the effects of your sluggish metabolism. A good workout can releases endorphins and other mood-enhancing chemicals.
Never make exercise a substitute for any health medication. For substantial health benefits, adults should participate in atleast 150 minutes (two hours and 30 minutes) a week of moderate- intensity, or 75 minutes (1 hour and 15 minutes) a week of vigorous-intensity aerobic physical activity.
Fitness can also prevent or treat many chronic health conditions brought on by unhealthy lifestyle or aging. Working out can also help some people sleep better and possibly alleviate some mood disorders in certain individuals.
