Basics of Physical Health

Starting a fitness program or plan may be one of the best things in your life that you can do for your health. Above all, physical activity can reduce the risk of chronic diseases, improve balance and coordination, and help lose weight, regardless of age, gender or physical ability.
In a Health and Human Services article, healthy adults include exercise and strength training in their fitness plans, specifically:
- At least 150 minutes of moderate aerobic activity or 75 minutes of aerobic activity per week.
Strength training at least twice a week.
- Regular exercise can help control your weight, reduce your risk of heart disease, and strengthen your bones and muscles. But if you do not exercise because of health concerns, consult your doctor before starting your new fitness routine.
- When designing a personal fitness program, consider your fitness goals. Consider admiring fitness, and note personal barriers to fitness. Then consider the practical strategies to keep your fitness program on track.
 - Finally, starting a fitness program is an important decision, but your design should not be for a specific time only, it must last a lifetime.
