|What is fitness?
Fitness can be performance-related or health-related. Performance-related fitness is a measure
of an athlete's agility, balance, power, and speed. This topic focuses on health-related fitness, which you can achieve through
regular physical activity. The benefits of both types of fitness are a healthy heart and lungs (cardiorespiratory fitness),
increased flexibility, and muscular strength and endurance.
How can I be more physically active?
Try to make physical activity a regular and essential part of your day, just like brushing your teeth
or going to work. Start slowly and be sure to consult your doctor first, especially if you aren't active at all or have health
problems. Make an appointment with yourself when you are most likely to keep it. For example, consider scheduling your activity
in the morning if you tend to talk yourself out of it later in the day.
Preventing Injury and Illness
Physical activity is good for your health, but it does stress and strain your body in ways that a more
inactive lifestyle does not. If it's done too suddenly or without basic precautions, exercise can lead to injury or illness.
Even if you have long been active and are fit, keep safety in mind. Do not assume that basic precautions
do not apply to you.
