Importance of maintaining fitness

Fitness today has been neglected by almost all the people. When you stop maintaining your body fitness, you will be less flexible which makes you vulnerable to injuries. The injuries can be pain, fractures or tears. Gradually it becomes permanent which in turn will change your body posture and a lot more serious health related problems. Staying fit means having your body function at the highest level. This can be achieved by regular exercises. Exercising regularly will increase your lung performance, your heart performance and also helps in burning extra calories which will help you maintain your weight. Regular exercise helps in decreasing heart diseases. Heart related deaths are the highest in America. Besides keeping your heart healthy, it can decrease the risk of you getting a stroke, colon cancer, blood pressure and also diabetes. 

Apart from the above mentioned advantages that you get while staying fit, exercising regularly can help you improve your body posture; reduce muscle and joint pains which are very common among people leading a sedentary lifestyle. Staying fit makes your muscle flexible and realigns all the tissues, with improved flexibility, the level of joint degeneration is significantly reduced. 

To remain fit, you need not hit the gym or lift heavy. You can just do some sort of physical activity which makes your muscle work like walking, biking, swimming etc. But before you start any exercise, it is advised that you warm up your muscles for at least 5 to 10 minutes which will improve the blood flow and let you get more from your workout and can help you reduce any chances of injury. 

Staying fit is a must to all people irrespective of the age group they belong to.
