Fitness Means Healthy Living

As a person gets older they think about fitness in a way that is different than a person who is younger than them. True fitness means healthy living. It means you eat right, get enough rest, and it means you exercise on a regular bases, even if it is only for a few minutes everyday.

A person who exercises all of the time but never worries about the types of foods or supplements he/she puts in their body may have a false sense of fitness. Just because you may look good on the outside does not mean you are healthy on the inside. Too many people today take unhealthy supplements or powdered shakes that are not really good for the body. You have seen pencil thin people who think that fitness means you do not eat and if you do you better go exercise right away to make sure you do not gain an ounce. This is unhealthy and should not be a part of your fitness routine.

You may know people who train for hours and hours and eat protein bars and only drink sports drinks and sometimes water. They too have a false sense of fitness. Fitness does not mean depriving your body of nutrients and stressing it out. You never want to think that you are healthy because you saw some star or athlete, even some well respected person in your town doing these things.

Tip: Walking can help you to attain the fitness goals that you desire. To maximum the effectiveness of your walking workout, push off using the heel first and then your toes last.

When children think of fitness sometimes they do think of famous athletes. You may see an athlete who has trained their whole life to win championships so they will not eat certain foods, they exercise, but they don't have a problem taking or putting some type of drugs in their bodies like marijuana or some type of steroids. This is far from what fitness is supposed to be. A person does not have to be young to think about fitness. As we get older our bodies start to change, and we may find that we are eating better and taking vitamins and minerals that will help us to stay healthy. Adding a healthy exercise routine everyday such as walking is the type of fitness a person of any age group can think about.

A healthy person who wants to be fit makes sure they have a balanced view. How you treat your body matters. You put good things in your car to make them run, so why wouldn't you put good things such as healthy foods and clean water into your vehicle, your body. If you exercise, eat foods that do not have any nutritional value that do not allow you to even gain an ounce, what good is it to be pencil thin and not be healthy? If you train yourself to be fit and try to eat healthy food but put drugs into your body, than how healthy or fit can you be? When a person thinks of fitness they should think of a balanced healthy living.
