What is Fitness and why it is important?
Fitness is being able to perform day to day task with ease irrespective of age, gender, profession etc. i.e. making a human being perform to its full competency irrespective of the situation or scenario. An unfit person will always live a compromised life no matter what i.e. without knowing the onus of being a human. We are living longer than our previous generations, that still doesn't erase the fact that millions of people suffer needlessly from conditions that could be avoided. When we applaud average life expectancy in India or Worldwide today we shouldn’t forget about quality of life. We are living in an era where Living a Fitness Lifestyle is a solution to improving quality of life. Below are the benefits of living a Fitness lifestyle:
  • Enhancement in the day to day Performance
  • Abating Illness, Aches & Pains
  • Improvement in Metabolic Parameters
  • Reduced Injury Risks
  • Improves Focus
  • Improve Energy Levels
  • Improve Self Esteem & Confidence
  • Avoid Age-related Degeneration or Anti-aging
All above benefits leads to improvement in quality of all aspects of life - physical, mental and social. A person who is fit is capable of living life to its fullest extent. Physical and mental fitness play very important roles in our lives and people who are both, physically and mentally fit are less prone to medical conditions as well. Following a Fitness Lifestyle is getting oneself insured for life. The problem is lack of education and access to right guidance, where you can be the pioneer in changing lives around by imparting correct knowledge/guidance to the mass.
