Keeps your body fit and able
So you want to go and do something at the spur of the moment. Maybe it is travel or play a pickup game of some sort. Can you do it? How will you feel the next day? Can you physically climb that rope or walk that travel or fit into that area? Here is one of the 50 reasons why is it important to exercise.
Not everyone is going to win the Olympics or end up on the front of some magazine, however being fit enough to do more than the average at any time for any reason is important on so many levels. If you have small kids and they want to learn how to ride a bike, can you help them or do you have to get your neighbor to help you. I had to do that for my neighbor and it is not fun. Actually it is really embarrassing on so many levels. If your school age child wanted to play a pickup game with you or your vet tells you that fighto needs to go out more and get exercise, can you take him out? In the military one has to be ready in an instant. No time for one to say, “Hey can you give me a few days to get prepared?” in the same way we should be ready in an instant for anything, including major health issues.
By having a healthy fit and able body, statistics have shown that we can concur health issues sooner than those who are not fit. University of Rochester has done a study that shows that those that are in good shape have less incidence of on the job sickness or absenteeism. Proper exercise keeps your body fit, able and strong. The body will heal faster and ward off illnesses sooner. I can’t tell you the last time I had a sickness.
Another real good reason why keeping your body fit and able is important is because it doesn’t limit your food consumption. I can eat anything at any time for any reason. But I also know that food is only a fuel and for as much input as I have, there needs to be a direct output and that is thru proper exercise. With your body fit and able your quality of life can be great. No I can’t tell you that you will put on years onto your life, but what I can say is that for whatever time you may have left, quality of life, for those whole are fit and able, is great. I have a member who is 84 years old and for most of his life he has been exercising. What that man does in a day would make most 30 year olds want a midday nap. When you look at him, you don’t see old but a man who has relied on his ability to stay fit and able, and that he has done. He still mows his 2 acre lawn, blows the leaves off his roof, goes for 5 mile walks with his wife of 67 years and so many other things an 84 year old man should not be able to do.
Well here is another reason why we need to exercise. Let’s all get up and at it. The benefit for you exercising is keeping your body fit and able.
