If we live by the Spirit, let us also keep in step with the Spirit. - Proverbs 1:15

Figuring out how to be healthy can be a puzzle. But regular physical activity is the most important piece you need to be overall physically fit and well!  

Components of being physically fit:

  • Cardiorespiratory fitness > can help reduce the risk of heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke.
  • Muscular strength > Training for strength supports bone structure and density, as well as allows muscles to work in unison, thereby more efficiently.
  • Muscular endurance > The ability of a muscle to continue exerting force without tiring.
  • Body composition > The relative amounts of muscle, bone, water and fat an individual has. A person can potentially maintain the same weight, but radically change the ratio of each of the components. THE SCALE ONLY TELLS PART OF THE STORY!!!
  • Flexibility > Important because it improves the ability to link movements together smoothly and can help prevent injuries.

Benefits of physical activity

Being physically active can improve your brain health, help manage weight, reduce the risk of disease, strengthen bones and muscles and improve your ability to do everyday activities. This infographic offers a great visual of the variety of benefits associated with being active.

Physical Activity vs. Exercise

As a health coach, I always heard, “I’m active.” And I’d always ask for more details, “How are you active? Are you busy with various daily activities, or do you plan regularly structured movement?” There’s a difference. And while they’re both important for overall health, it’s also important to understand the goal of exercise vs. physical activity.

Not all physical activity is considered exercise. Exercise is a subcategory of physical activity and is considered plannedstructured and purposefulThe goal is to increase physical fitness. General physical activity aims to reduce the time being sedentary, complete tasks, and so on.
