We all want to be in the best of health but many of us always find excuses to do nothing but sit in front of the TV or the computer the whole day and laze around. Living a sedentary life can actually have bad health effects such as obesity, fatigue and even heart problems just to name a few but the good news is that more and more people are seeing the value of living an active lifestyle especially when it comes to staying healthy as they age. What's even better is that exercising has become more accessible and affordable because you can actually do cardio workouts even when you spend most of your days at home. The beauty of cardio workouts is that they will increase your heart rate to help jump start your metabolism. Even if you do 10 to 30 minutes of cardio exercises in a day, you are helping your body to burn fats fairly quickly.
My sister and I also do gymnastics at home. We did a lot in the summer, but since the days are getting cold we usually do it in our basement. One of my long terms goals is to keep playing sports and to stay healthy. In order to do this, I will have to keep exercising and improve my endurance in a bunch of physical activities. This will also stop me from having bad health, heart disease, and cancer.
I used to head to the gym or follow some diet plans only to give it up within 2-3 days. Then, I came across a few articles online on how to plan and organize your daily routine to lose weight. I thought I’ll give this a shot as well. Guess what? It worked so perfectly for me!
Many athletes that are participating in football and basketball do not get any breaks. During the appropriate season, they have games and practices. During the off season, they have to keep improving for the following season. These are the same scenarios with cheerleading. Jake New provides us with a statement validating how much time and effort is put into sports, “Most college athletes say they spend as much or more time on sports during the off-season as they do during the season, leaving them little time for common college student activities like studying, internships and part-time jobs.” (New).
On the first day my client did muscular endurance at his home because the exercises did not require any equipment. On the second day we did the muscular strength at his local gym because the exercises required equipment. Before we started the endurance test, I had
It is very important for people to know that walking one mile is not needed a good substitute for a high-intensity workout. However, it is very helpful for maintenance, it will help me from getting sedentary, and also it is very good for my mind and spirit. It may not burn any fat away from my body as fast as other types of aerobic exercises. After an activity, I thought I was more motivated to sign up to a fitness program where I can be more dedicated to exercising and getting better. During the activity, I was feeling very tired and out of breath.
I was open to the suggestion that I shouldn’t drink, especially if it would make my life better. I tried it, but I didn’t change my immediate environment, and I underestimated the power it had on me. I would create a new cycle. My friend would follow up, but he didn’t provide much challenge to my accountability. I would convince myself that I was fine enough to have a few more drinks than usual after periods of success and create new pitfalls in my life which would lead to guilt pertaining to drinking.
This is because of their lack of interest to play outside during their leisure time and majority of them prefer to stay indoors and play video games, chatting with friends or do their homework rather than going outside. They find that playing outdoors is a hassle even though when they go outside, they will naturally get some exercise done. Yet, they are encouraged to go outside and engage themselves with physical activity on a daily basis because it can help to improve their health and social skills. There are various reasons young adults spending less time outside during their leisure time, it is because of the safety issue, their schedule that is filled with academic activities and the rapid fill of urbanization that is affecting their playing space.

Service members and people in general need energy to perform any day to day activity. Job performance can be decreased if a person has little to no energy which is not what an employer is looking for. Sitting or lying around all day inactive makes you weak as you aren’t using any of the major muscle groups in your body (Barlowe, 2017).

So far, the evolution of our exercise and fitness techniques has done wonders to improve our muscular strength, balance and flexibility, increase our cardiovascular efficiency and reduce our body fat. However, the problem is that many of the movements, motions and techniques found in the local gym have no correlation to the needs or goals of your life. For example, do bicep curls apply to your everyday life? Running on a treadmill provides cardiovascular health, but its application to the needs of everyday life seems to be somewhat ill defined. I have been in the health professional for over a decade and have thought long and hard upon the meaning and value exercise represents in our lives.
