Elemental Truth

By Fitness Scientist



Either do not attempt at all, or go through with it.
–Ovid


The most common discouragements contributing to the high exercise drop out rate are:

(1) Fraudulent products, (2) Fitness memberships that never produce the promised result, (3) A misled personal knowledge base leading to impossible goal setting, and (4) Fitness centers "instructors" who fail to provide supervision, education, and motivation.

Average physical fitness is: The ability to live each day with vigor and alertness, without fatigue and pain, with energy left for leisure time activities.Superior fitness will show itself by providing ABOVE-average levels of strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, and cardio respiratory endurance.

Another benefit of superior fitness is BELOW-average levels of body fat.

Self-design of a wellness program calls for a needed under standing of the essentials of productive fitness protocols to satisfy the goals you set for yourself. It is not correct that "something is better than nothing." Improperly planned exercise programs do more harm than good.

Before launching a fitness program, check with your physician, and determine any restrictions he or she feels worthy of your consideration. When, in average health, exercise is safe and beneficial.

Although a fitness program can have profound, positive effects for your lifestyle, it may also cause serious damage to novice philosophies when coupled with the too much-- too soon attempt to hurry goals along. There is no age limit governing one's beginning of a fitness program. Attitude, not age, is the major precondition, and everyone can benefit from exercise.

Men, women, and intelligent children can follow the same exercise program. Women will not develop muscles like a man, children's physical growth does not stop, and seniors can safely exercise when applying common sense.

A so-called average person can model the same program as an athlete. The only change is in the connection of intensity to the person exercising.

"Intensity" by our description designates the measure of time one rests between each set of exercise. The less rest provided between exercises the higher the contribution to intensity. The more rest permitted, the lower the intensity.

Those beginning an exercise program for the first time must gradually enter into high intensity exercise. Previously, conditioned folks on a comeback quest should not attempt a high-intensity type program.

Proactive physical exercise can extremely reduce the possibility of sports-related injuries, and will rehabilitate any injury sustained playing a favorite sport or merely stepping off a curbing.
Common, unresolved problems such as nagging lower back issues, knee, elbow, and shoulder injuries return to normal functional ability with sensible exercise.

Senior citizens, particularly, will benefit from safe exercise procedures.

Bone thickness and body strength will increase, and noticeably aid in body balance and greater daily functional ability. It is possible to avert broken bones, as well as experiencing enhanced mobility. Rising from a chair to a standing position and walking up and down, stairs will become much easier.

In summary:

• Education is the solution to understanding complete fitness training.

• Any realistic goal is achievable.

• Get your physician's OK.

• Most commonly-accepted knowledge connected to fitness is myth.

• Everyone will benefit from proper exercise.

• There are no age restrictions.

• Prevention and rehabilitation of traumas are possible.

• Permanent weight loss follows as one eats less calories than called for by routine activities.

• Strength, flexibility, muscular endurance, and cardio respiratory endurance are the foundations on which fitness is established.

• A properly-designed wellness program will enhance your physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual qualities.

• Spot reducing is a fantasy. Sauna wraps are useless and magic wands, lotions, potions, and pills do not exist.

• Moreover, there is no tooth fairy.


“Opportunity knocks at every man’s door once. On some men’s door it hammers till it breaks down the door and then it goes in and wakes him up if he’s asleep, and ever afterward it works for him as a night watchman.” ---Finley Peter Dunne
