Is it ever too late to reap the benefits of good exercise, even if years of neglect have left you obese and sluggish?
- What is fitness?
- Can you turn around a neglected body?
The long term risks of unhealthy activities are easily overlooked in our day to day living.
A single days neglect is followed by another, until at some point it seems unreasonable to regain health and poor fitness habits are the norm.
But the truth is there is no time in a human being’s life where getting active will not yield physical health benefits. Evidence now points to mental health benefits of as well.
Fitness can be described as the body’s ability to work beyond its normal day to day activity for a given amount of time. The fittest of people can participate in iron man races. While most of us have more humble physical capacities, all of us can improve the capacity we have.
My goal as a writer is to seek out and bring to light ideas and concepts people of all abilities can use to become more physically fit.
Using my own body development to inform and encourage a healthy lifestyle, my words reflect a personal transformation.
I have reduced my weight from 250 plus pounds to 200 pounds, increased aerobic and muscular fitness to a level where I can stair climb 100 floors in 30 minutes, comfortably walk 10 miles, and bicycle 60 miles. All being accomplished by starting training at age 53.
Yes, you can turn a neglected body around, and I am an example. I hope to help others do the same so they too can choose and maintain a healthy life filled with fitness.
