Chapter 1: Fitness And Where You Stand Right Now
Fitness is a term that is used to help define the ability to stay in the best physical shape. You may ask, then, “What am I staying in shape for?” To each person, this will be something different.
For most, it is a matter of staying healthy as long as possible. You see, your body is designed to work as a machine. When each part of the machine is cared for, the entire machine works the best that it can. When the machine is neglected either in part or in the whole, then the machine won’t run well and eventually won’t run at all.
If a car, for example, is well maintained for many years, it will last many years longer. If it isn’t taken care of, for example you don’t change the oil in it, you cut several years off the life of the car. That’s costly to you, but when you look at this as your body, you are shaving away days, weeks, and even years off of your life when you don’t take care of your machine (your body.)
Fitness is a necessary part of life. Before we get on the soap box, remember that fitness is something that you can get into the habit of doing which makes it easy.
Fitness is not something that you have to struggle with. When you were three you were probably taught to brush your teeth. You learned to put your clothes on. When you were learning how to do them, you likely hated it. But, once you learned how to do it, it became something that you didn’t think twice about. Do you worry about brushing your teeth today? No, because it’s a habit. That’s what we want you to think of when you think of fitness.
It’s just something that you do. Granted, the first weeks of learning to be fit and staying healthy will be the hardest. You’ll dread it. You’ll find excuses about not doing it. You’ll claim that getting fit is just too hard. You just can’t give up what you love. That’s not true.
In fact, if you have the will power to save your life by sacrificing for just a few weeks, you’ll see that fitness can be easily mastered by you.
Our first goal is to determine where you stand right now. Don’t worry, this is painless, but it may hurt your ego a bit to do it. Nevertheless, it’s an important first step.
Where Are You Now?
Take a look at yourself right now. What do you see? If you are unhappy about any part of your body, chances are good that area of your body is bothering you because it’s an unhealthy area.
Here are some questions to ask yourself to determine where you stand right now.
• Do you have aches and pains in parts of your body that are not from an injury?
• Do you have clothing that doesn’t fit parts of your body well?
• Do you struggle to do physical activities? Do you avoid them because you know you can’t do them?
• Are you unhappy with the way that your body looks? Do you avoid looking in the mirror?
• Have you been told by your doctor, your family or others that you need to consider your fitness?
If so, then you need to begin by understanding that change needs to happen. There are several tools that you need to use to determine your health level currently. You can find 7
calculators for many of these available to you free of charge on the web. You need to use them to understand exactly where you stand right now.
• Your Blood Pressure: The pressure in which your heart pumps blood throughout your body. You need this number to be there, but it needs to be in a certain range to be healthy. For adults, this is generally 120 to 139/80 to 89. Ask your doctor where your blood pressure is.
• Body Mass Index: Your BMI is a measure of the percentage of fat on your body. The higher this number is, the more prone to health risks you are.
• Ideal Weight: In comparison to your height and body structure, your ideal weight is the weight that you should be, ideally.
These three things are critical elements for you to take into consideration when considering where you stand right now. But, there’s much more for you to consider.
One thing that we want you to do besides getting the above information is to grab a tape measure and get one of the most important measurements out there: your waist.
Your waist is important because it is the indication on your body of your potential health risk. Those that have a larger midsection are most prone to health risks.
This is an important piece of information because of how vital it is to your health. Those that have a large midsection are the most prone to heart problems. The fat that is here will push into your body, causing difficulty for each organ there. Your kidneys, your lungs and even your heart are suppressed. In effect, the fat here is likely to be what kills you, if you are overweight.
