Keeping Fit

The lifetime importance of fitness for our health means, that it is something we have to stick all the time. But in fact it is not something that we should feel we are obliged to do, fitness should become a constant part of our life. The first steps are always hard, so at the beginning you might think about it as something to perform in the long term, and gradually to progress from the easiest exercises or activities, towards harder and more intense workouts, until you make fitness a part of your lifestyle.

To realize the importance of fitness for your health, you may look at it  from another point of view. Life is movement, unlike trees and stones we were meant to be constantly moving. And our body is designed to be healthy, and to fight, and withstand diseases, predominantly when it is physically fit and strong. When put under pressure (intensive workouts) the human body has the ability to recover and self improve, so that it can get accustomed to what you are doing and to be ready for harder challenges. In this way you will improve speed, durability, strength, immunity levels, your mood, and willpower as well.

If you take care of your body, in return it will take care for you too. If you are constantly doing it, your efforts will get a lifetime award. Every time you allow to make compromises with yourself, you will make it at the expense of your well-being. The sooner you start taking care of your body, the faster you will reap the lifetime “rewards” of fitness for health.

According to many clinical studies doing regular cardiovascular exercises in the early adulthood is critical for the prevention of many heart diseases in the near future. To decrease the possibility of developing high blood pressure, heart attacks or diabetes in the future, you have to be more physically active now.

The constant and continued exercising makes the heart muscles grow thicker and the heart is able to pump up more blood. The body’s metabolism is boosted and the level of energy is improved. So to maintain a reasonable health we have to make fitness a part of our life.

The lifetime importance of fitness should not be underestimated even if you are young and full of energy. If you are in good form and comfortable in your body now, it doesn’t mean there is no need of exercise. What is more if you take the extra efforts, you will be more confident, knowing that you have taken things in your hands, and you will decrease the possibility of dealing with problems – sedentary life may cause. You will also need to establish good eating habits and to make smarter food choices, because good health and physical performance starts with good nutrition. No matter how hard you train, whether you will achieve the maximum from your work-out or not, depends on the quality and the variety of your meals.

An important reminder for young people is to reconsider the common apprehension, that middle age is far away and there is still much time, you’ll be surprised how fast time passes. With regular exercising you can be fit and healthy, after all as the saying goes: it doesn’t matter how old you are, but how good you are feeling.
