What is Physical Fitness?
A condition or state of being that helps you look, feel and do your best. It is the ability to do tasks full of energy, and still be able to do other things with your time, such as schoolwork and activities with family and friends. It is a basis for good health and well-being. Fitness involves performance of the heart and lungs, and the muscles of the body. Fitness can also influence how alert you are and how you feel emotionally.
..through a synergistic, holistic approach to fitness. That’s nationally recognized fitness professional Mike Rickett’s mission, in his professional and personal lives.
By combining his years of experience in and understanding of training, nutrition, and emotional and spiritual well-being, Mike has created an integrated approach to fitness–an approach that can work for you whether you’re a healthclub director, professional trainer, or someone who would like to find ways to introduce fitness into your life.
Mental Health Benefits of Exercise
Regular exercise can help you feel less stressed, can improve your self-esteem, and can help you to feel ready to learn in school. Kids who exercise may also have reduced symptoms of anxiety and depression.
Exercise can also improve your overall mood. Did you have an argument with a friend? Or did you do poorly on a test? A workout at the gym or a brisk 30-minute walk will make your brain produce chemicals that will make you happier and more relaxed than before you started working out.
