Importance of Physical Fitness
Just do it!
As a friend? Nike is right about this simple slogan, but I wonder how seriously exercise and fitness are taken.
A recent article in Fitness Statistics by Sarah Marshall on MyFit.ca provided this shocking summary: “More than 60% of adults do not receive the recommended amount of regular physical activity. Even worse, 25% of all adults are completely inactive. Almost 50% of young people aged 12-21 years old are regularly inactive, 19% of all high school students are physically active for 20 minutes or more than physical education classes each day of the school week. How you measure I do not intend to fill this in, because my rates have always increased over the years when my exercise routines are less.
Maintaining good health is essential for a healthy life because my doctor reminds me of our regular half-yearly visits. Making time for fitness is another matter. We can all look at our daily calendars and say that time is running out. But is the problem time or lack?
Of course not. If we are honest with each other, the truth is that we simply do not see it as a high priority. Many other driving activities rush and fill every hour of waking up. If you’re like me, an avid multitasker, you can handle at least two or more needs at once. You will probably sing the same song as me: ‘There just isn’t enough time! ‘
But it is true? I have many friends who run miles every day and live a very busy, productive, and very successful life. So what’s my problem?
I know I need to be physically fit or at least spend some time exercising every day. I’m not likely to grow or develop a body like Arnold S. during my life, but it’s nice to have more energy to play with my grandchildren. So what should I do? What can you do to have time for fitness?
The first thing I did recently was to find that a holistic approach can be the most motivating. I realized that physical fitness without taking into account my mental, emotional and mental well-being would not serve my long-term goals.
1. Mental health
- Whatever we want to do starts with our mental state. Training and education are essential components of mental health. Like physical exercise, we can train our minds using various methods with our natural curiosity to keep our minds alert and active.
2. Emotional power
- Controlling our emotions is easier for some than for others. I always thought I was a very confident and highly emotional person. In recent years, I have had several challenging experiences that have tested my strength and self-confidence. I now realize that if I have not practiced good emotional “exercise” by taking the time to understand myself and come into contact with my emotions, the challenges I face and still face, I may lose my balance.
3. Spiritual power
- This area has always been ignored and has received a lot of attention in recent years. Your spiritual domain is not just about what “religion” you professor what “belief system” you follow. It has more to do with fellowship with the Creator for life. Without the basic laws of law or the spiritual laws of the universe, life has no meaning. Reverend Graham Tomlin’s recent book, ‘Spiritual Fitness’, talks about the need for a balance between mental and physical health. One reader wrote: “(v) ‘Spiritual prowess’ (the author) conceptualizes the powerful antidote to luxury-based consumption and culture advertised in the modern media …”.
4. Physical ability
- Ultimately, physical condition, if balanced in all aspects of our lives, can be something we can’t do without, and yet we enjoy a full, vibrant, and successful life. I do not suggest that you start running marathons tomorrow, but a short walk every day has many benefits for the heart and mind.
- Someone I’ve read about running thousands of miles, if not hundreds of thousands in most countries in the Middle East, including Turkey, Greece, Italy, Cyprus, Sicily, Malta, Israel, Lebanon. He did all this when there were no modern roads because he traveled through these places in the 1st century AD.
- He was a passionate writer and talked about the importance of training with a Greek gymnast when he wrote these words about life: “Run (life) on the way to winning an award. Everyone who participates in (life) competitions undergoes strict training. They do it to get a crown (gold medal) that will not last, but we do it to get a crown (reward) that will last forever! “.
Overview of Physical Fitness Components
Physical fitness can only be defined as the overall state of good physical health. Regardless of age, it can be described as a condition that helps an individual to see or feel better mentally or physically. In fact, in the simplest sense, it is very similar to fine-tuning or machine.
- Just as fine-tuning helps the machine to function properly, good physical fitness helps the human body to function properly. As a result, the human body must remain physically healthy.
- A healthy and fit body will run as it should. It helps maintain muscle strength, body structure, and overall mobility in different parts of the body. It also helps control weight and even contributes to healthy joints and bones. A body without physical fitness can only be compared to an inactive machine.
- Just as inertia results in rust on machines, the same rule applies to the human body. Today, when we look at the current scenario, the Japanese are considered the best physical people in the world. From an early age, children in Japan are trained in physical fitness and therefore the result is remarkable. So when getting up on the bench is such a big task, it can be an important signal for you to consider the importance of physical fitness and look for different ways to improve it.
For most, physical fitness comes first with regular exercise, but many other components of physical fitness need to be taken care of. While exercise is an even more important part of health, diet and the environment are some of the other elements that play many roles. In addition to all this, there are some of the most important components of physical health that are used today mainly by health clubs to measure body health, such as:
1. Cardiovascular endurance – The heart and lungs can function simultaneously and supply the body with the necessary oxygen and fuel during continuous exercise.
2. Muscle strength – This is the amount of strength expended on muscle. The push-up test is one of the most common tests used to assess muscle strength.
3. Muscle Endurance – Often defined as the ability of muscles to perform a task without stopping without fatigue. Cycling and elliptical machines are some exercises that can be very effective in measuring muscle endurance.
4. Flexibility – This is the ability to move joints like any group of joints in the normal range of motion. The fact is, the more flexible the body, the more physical fitness it can enjoy. A session and achievement test is often used to test flexibility.
5. Body composition – this can mean the percentage of body fat that an individual has in contrast to his total body weight. This can be easily calculated using underwater routes or using bioelectric impedance.
These five important components of physical fitness represent how healthy and appropriate the body as a whole is. And when you go through another battery of tests, you get information about specific areas you may need to work on. strength because it has a positive effect on body composition and can result in excessive body fat loss and a healthy body.
