5 Lesser known essentials for getting fit

I could tell you that running 3 days a week for 20 minutes is good for your health, and as a general rule of thumb it is good for people, but if you have knee issues and a heart condition and hate running, this may not be the best recommendation for you (at least not yet…).

Understanding the human body and doing research is critical. We need to be educated in the health and fitness field, not just look for quick fixes. I truly believe that the success to any fitness or weight-loss program lies in a person’s ability to understand the human body, as well as their own body. Things are not always cut and dry: Eat this not that, workout this way and not that way…our bodies change and research findings change the way we view things; we need to be able to keep up and understand this.
