What does fitness mean to you?

 

As television sets made their way into living rooms across America in the 1950’s, President Dwight Eisenhower decided to take a stand against the decline in physical activity by establishing the President’s Council on Youth Fitness.  This council was created to raise awareness on the importance of regular physical activity. 

Later on in 1983, the President’s Council declared May as National Physical Fitness Month, challenging every American to make physical activity and sports something to try every day – whether it’s playing on a softball team, training for a race, walking the dog or just watering the garden.

What does fitness mean to you?  Fitness is not running a marathon or lifting heavy weights, fitness is being able to perform physical activity and having the energy and strength to feel as good as possible.

Unfortunately to many people, fitness has become a chore.  Exercise is a dreaded activity – even though it is what our bodies were essentially made to do.  Physical activity is not only a necessity for a strong body and clear mind, but it also helps to prevent obesity related diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. 

Here at H3, fitness is one of the three core elements to our successful Healthy Lifestyle™ program.  Without this component, you will have a hard time reaching your end goals.  Here, fitness comes in the form of sunrise beach walks, beach boot camps, biking tours, kayaking adventures, dance classes, tennis camps and more.  Fitness doesn’t have to be miserable – it’s meant to be fun and enjoyable. 

Fitness means different things to different people, but really it comes down to being able to live your healthiest life.  From staff to Guests, listen to what they had to say about what fitness means to them.
