exercise may be one of the best gifts you can give yourself. It
improves circulation, lowers blood pressure, strengthens your muscles
and helps you sleep better. A healthy diet, regular exercise and
adequate sleep are necessary for overall physical fitness.

Agility is the ability to change the body's direction at speed.
Field sports and racket sports use rapid body movement with change
of direction and speed in response to a moving target. This requires
a combination of balance, coordination, speed, reflexes, and strength.
Balance is the detection of acceleration and enables the ability
to walk without falling. To maintain orientation visual signals
are sent to the brain about the body's position in relation to its
surroundings. These signals are processed by the brain, and compared
to information from the vestibular, visual and the skeletal systems.
Body composition is used to describe the percentages of fat, bone
and muscle in human bodies. Muscular tissue takes up less space
than fat tissue and two people of the same height and same weight
may look completely different and determines how lean we appear.
Strengthening and enlarging the heart muscle improves its pumping
efficiency. Toning muscles throughout the body improves overall
circulation and reduces blood pressure. An aerobic workout should
include a 5-10 minute warm up, 20 minutes of exercise and a 5-10
minute cool down.
Coordination is the ability to manipulate muscles in activities
requiring spatial awareness, timing, balance, sequence and alternating
movements. Fine motor coordination addresses the fine motor skills,
such as the abilities to manipulate small objects.
Muscles use sugar from the bloodstream at a rapid rate. To keep
blood sugar levels from dropping, the liver manufactures sugar from
protein and if you don't eat, your blood sugar level drops. When
exercising for longer than an hour, drink and eat foods loaded with
Flexibility is strength and control of motion and the ability to
achieve a full range of movements. To turn, stretch, twist and bend
during exercise increases the amount of flexibility in a joint,
while decreasing the amount of resistance.
Strengthening muscle with intense exercise injures muscle fibers
and causes individual muscle fibers to fray. The healing process
results in increased muscle tissue. Chances of harmful injury increase
if muscles are intensely exercised more than 1-3 times a week.
