Are YOU physically fit?
1. How many times a week do you work out?
Enough to work up a sweat for 20 minutes or more
To keep a moderate level of fitness you need to work up a sweat for 20 minutes or more at least twice a week.
2. Are you physically active at your job?
If you spend most of your day walking, climbing stairs and lifting packages you may already be fit. If your job keeps you seated all day you would do well do have a regular fitness program, such as the one you're receiving here.
3. Do you watch your weight?
A slight bit of fat will not shorten your lifespan. But if you are obese, which is defined as being 20% heavier than the statistical average, you have a 20% shorter life expectancy.
4. Have you had your blod pressure checked recently?
Fitness is especially beneficial for people whose blood pressure is too high. Since high blood pressure places a high degree of stress on the cardiovascular system, it is one of the leading causes of stroke and heart attacks. You should have your blood pressure checked regularly and if it is too high take steps to reduce it.
5. Are you generally positive in your outlook on life?
Recent studies have proved what folk wisdom has long taught: stress and depression can lower the body's resistance to disease. One of the best ways to alleviate stress and depression is through regular aerobics exercise.
6. Do you take some time to relax every day?
Adults need to play in order to stay at the peak of health. It doesn't matter if it is aerobic exercise or sports, working in your garden, strolling through a park or playing with your children, you need to take time to relax. People who can relax and "tune out" have been found to have fewer illnesses and may live longer.
7. How is your cholesterol level?
Cholesterol deposits in the arteries lead to heart disease, the number one cause of death in the United States. By cutting down on fatty foods and replacing them with a healthier, leaner diet, along with aerobics exercise, you can reduce the build up of cholesterol in your bloodstream.
8. When working out, do you monitor yourself to avoid overexertion?
Overdoing it will wear your body down, not build up cardiovascular fitness. By exerting yourself to your maximum heart rate you'll quickly exhaust yourself. Know what your heart rate should be and monitor it during your workouts.
