Need, Importance and Benefits of exercise in daily lifeAuthor(s):
This paper sums up the significant benefits linking physical activity to health enhancement. There is evidence from high quality studies to strongly support the positive association between increased levels of physical activity, exercise participation and improved health. Worldwide, around 3.2 million deaths per year are being attributed due to physical in-activity. In industrialized countries where people are living longer lives, the levels of chronic health conditions are increasing and the levels of physical activity are declining. People of all ages can improve the quality of their lives and reduce the risks of developing coronary heart disease, hypertension and some cancers with ongoing participation in moderate physical activity and exercise. A formidable challenge facing many personal fitness trainers (PFT`s) and other health and fitness professionals is finding new ways of motivating people to improve their wellbeing through consistent participation in physical activity and exercise. As indicated, significant health benefits can be obtained by engaging in moderate amounts of physical activity on most and preferably all days of the week. There is a growing understanding of how certain levels of physical activity may positively affect cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, respiratory and endocrine function as well as mental health. Key factors in improving health are exercising at a moderate to vigorous level for at least 5 days per week and including both aerobic and strengthening exercises. A challenge for health professionals is to increase physical activity and exercise participation.Pages: 127-130 | 1270 Views 79 DownloadsDownload Full Article:
