How Fit Are You?

Saturday, February 02, 2013

The answer to that question may depend on how fit you want to be, but the general goal is to be in shape to enjoy as active a lifestyle as possible and reduce the risk of health conditions — such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease — that regular exercise can help prevent. Exercise guidelines vary depending on your age and current fitness level, but everyone can take at least some small steps to meet their fitness goals.

    I am fit enough that I strive to keep my joints healthy. I'm 53 and my goal is to avoid as many aches and pains as I can as I age.

    I firmly believe in the combination of diet and exercise. I think fitness does depend on a healthy weight.

    My dad started walking daily 25 years ago. He is now ninety one, and is anxious to get back to the gym joined last year. He amazes me, but I really think the walking did it. Glenn
