Those of us who participate in regular physical activity do so partly to improve the current and future level of our health. We strive toward an optimal state of well-being. As our lifestyle improves, our health also improves and we experience less disease and sickness. When most people are asked what it means to be healthy, they normally respond with the four components of fitness; cardiorespiratory ability, muscular ability, flexibility, and body composition. Although these components are a critical part of being healthy, they are not the only contributing factors. Physical health is only one aspect of our overall health. As fitness professionals, we have a responsibility to guide and motivate others to improve their level of health and wellness. We can promote a holistic approach to health (mind, body, and spirit), not just encourage physical activity.
The main objective of this unit is to educate better the general public about the importance of physical fitness through practical classes. These classes will give the public the opportunity to exercise and participate in fitness classes. An introductory theory session will be given in order to guide the participants on healthy eating and instill a training mentality. Staying active means keeping your body functioning at a high level. Regular exercise will maintain the performance of your lungs and heart to most efficiently burn off excess calories and keep your weight under control. Exercise will also improve muscle strength, increase joint flexibility and improve endurance.
