Our bodies are designed to move. This is very evident in that we have legs that allow us to not only crawl, hop and walk, but also run, jump and skip (yes, adults should still be skipping and hopping). Our arms and torso are also designed to help us move and play an important role in our gait (if you don’t believe, then start walking now and watch how your arms and torso help to move the rest of your body). When done properly, exercise will enhance the ability of our bodies to move.
What is your fitness goal that you have going into your fitness program?Is it to say the least, fitting your perception of yourself in a long term healthy state?Are you ok with your goal objectively and practically?Have you got issues with what think you’re doing to get your goal accomplished?
You work out all the time but you are still not seeing the changes in your body that you want to see. Being physically fit is not just about working out the body, it is also about working out the mind. You can work out every day but if you keep filling your brain with negative self talk you are fefeating all the hard woek that your body is doing.
If you look at any magazine in your local grocery checkout line, you're bombarded with messages of instant weight loss, celebrity weight loss, and images of thin models and celebrities. I don't have to tell you that our culture is very weight obsessed. Add in the health crisis related to the obesity epidemic and the results are a society where weight discrimination is the only acceptable form discrimination.
One thing that I learned from my dad was "health is everything". With that in mind, my life has revolved about how to stay healthy. Along the way not only did I teach all levels of fitness but i bought and ran my own health food store, developed a Cable TV series, "Stepping for FUN" and continually am involved in the community to help others stay happy, healthy and fit. So, I ask you. What are you doing to stay happy? What are you doing to stay healthy? And, what are you doing to stay fit! I would love to hear your comments.
