Weight loss, obesity, cardiovascular health, risk falls, and mental issues are just factors that commonly affect American citizens daily. Exercising has always been there ever since it was discovered, and it will continuously be accessible for everyone as the best solution to see real results. Clearly, exercising is the best choice to include in any regimes anyone may think of when trying to invest in their health. It benefits those citizens naturally with self confidence which leads them to live happily and avoid other life circumstances that general population may go through. As compared to other recommendations when choosing exercise being the best solution to health issues, it can definitely be challenging. Some may consider types of solution that are easy and gives immediate outcomes such as taking diet pills, diet supplements, or surgeries and if they are wealthy, they may even consider getting laser liposuctions. Yet, since these alternate ways are not done naturally, it may come back faster than they think and can still affect one's mental and physical health.Therefore, exercise is the best solution due to the fact that it’s a natural way of taking care of the human body. Through this process, anyone who will participate in exercise or physical activities will learn that it’s a journey. They will learn how strong they really are physically and mentally as a person. Exercising “ ‘provides
Want to feel better, have more energy and reduce your risk of serious disease? Look no further than exercise. The health benefits of regular exercise and physical activity are hard to ignore. Physical activity not only makes a person feel better, it can actually increase a person’s life span. Many people battle obesity and side effects that are caused by this sickness. The American Medical Association has recognized it as a disease as of two thousand and thirteen. The Liberal government has just released a document that they are cutting the Children 's Fitness Tax Credit. This is a political mistake since physical activity is the key to a healthy life and a life free of disease.
According to the Department of Health and Human Services “adults should get at least two and a half hours (150 minutes) each week of moderate-intensity aerobic physical activity ("Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans-)”. Unfortunately, it is estimated that only about 20% of adults are actually exercising the recommended amount ("CBSNews"). This leaves the other 80% of adults at a disadvantage. Inactivity in adults yields even more increased risk than children. Adults who do not exercise and do not get the proper nutrients are more at risk for “high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, stroke, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and cancer ("Why Is It Important? -")”. Unlike children, adults are more aware of these risks, however adults have more reasons to be deterred. The most common reasons adults don’t exercise or eat healthy are that they don’t have time, they feel uncomfortable with their current physical condition, they lack energy due to a poor diet, or they just haven’t developed a habit for exercising ("CBSNews"). The last reason reiterates the need for better physical education
Since the dawn of humanity, exercise has been crucial for physical survival. In recent times, however, exercise is losing its significance to human survival. Some would argue that it already has lost its significance, and as exercise becomes less important, people exercise less. According to fitness.gov, only 33% of adults receive the recommended amount of physical activity each week (citation). Clearly there is a problem. However, there is still a fraction of the population that exercises diligently. Why do these people stick with it? Exercise has countless advantages that are still extremely important to our lives. So even though the need of exercise may appear to be diminishing, the practical effects should be enough to encourage people
Although most studies have shown that physical activity prevent morbidity and mortality independent of weight, the range of benefits vary for among various groups stratified according to age, sex, race and BMI. Also, different dose of physical ...
This study investigated the barriers and enablers of physical activity in various workplaces. Thematic analysis that ensued provided relevant clues into understanding workers’ plight in the workplace with regard to actively participate into physical activity. Sedentary behavior settled in with time, given the amount of hours workers spent at work daily. It was equally important to bring into light factors that influenced workers behaviors so they could inform recommendations about physical activity for workers’ moral, motivation, and keeping healthy.
For all Americans, physical educational practices can be a key part in their overall health. Ba...
Lack of exercise is the cause of most health-related issues today. Americans are becoming ill every second from lack of exercise, yet nothing is being done to prevent these diseases. Diet plans and exercise programs are advertised in every corner, yet they are ignored. Many disorders and diseases are preventable, and even curable without the aid of modern technology. Regardless, the illnesses are at an all time high and show no sign of declining. What many individuals fail to realize is how essential fitness is to life. It is imperative in order to sustain a healthy lifestyle for many reasons.
Countless studies have shown that people who exercise live longer, have healthier bodies, and are in a more positive psychological state than those who don’t. The most beneficial of daily exercise has been the main focus for many individuals who take on/up a daily physical exercise program. Exercise may offer considerable potential alone or as an adjunct in improving the mental well-being of many people. As we all know that physical exercise has proven beneficial to cardiovascular health, improving cholesterol levels, decreasing the chances of contracting colds and flu, as well as lowering high blood pressure. Also, regular exercise carries insignificant harmful side effects. Although these factors alone are enough reasons for a lifelong
In everyday life people are going through different phases in their decision making that will impact how they behave. This goes from thinking about doing something to actually going through with the change. This process that everyone goes through for different lifestyle choices is referred to as the Transtheoretical Model of Behaviour (TTM). This theory model can be transferrable to many different situations and not specific to one such as a persons exercise habits or dietary habits. However, from here on this paper will discuss the TTM in terms of a non-exerciser client of a personal trainer. Understanding the TTM is important for personal trainer to understand as they need to know how to encourage and push their clients through the 5 phases of the TTM.

There exists various lifestyles and behaviours, ranging from amount of nutrition intake, mental well-being, to the amount of physical activity engaged individually. Weighing the abundance of factors, this essay primarily aims to focus on the aspect of physical activity in relevance to how it possibly affects one's lifestyle. By cross-referencing to other lifestyles and behaviours, this essay will also demonstrate the importance of physical activity in possibly alleviating the issues raised pertaining to other lifestyles as well. Throughout this essay, there will be frequent references to the socio-ecological framework in examining the aforementioned factors.
Some activity clubs we provide include, dancing, running, jump roping, basketball and soccer clubs, just to name a few. These clubs encourage kids to stay active. Our PE program also sends out monthly newsletters to the parents that give them ways to help their child live a healthy lifestyle. The National Association for Sport and Physical Education states, “Regular physical activity improves functional status and limits disability during the middle and later adult years. Physical activity contributes to quality of life, psychological health, and the ability to meet physical work demands. Physical education can serve as a vehicle for helping students to develop the knowledge, attitudes, motor skills, behavioral skills, and confidence needed to adopt and maintain physically active lifestyles. The outcomes of a quality physical education program include the development of students’ physical competence, health-related fitness, self-esteem, and overall enjoyment of physical activity. These outcomes enable students to make informed decisions and choices about leading a physically active lifestyle. In early years children derive pleasure from movement sensations and experience challenge and joy as they sense a growing competence in their movement ability. Evidence suggests that the level of participation, the degree of skill, and the number of activities mastered as a child directly influences the extent to which children will continue to participate in physical activity as an
