MAIN Arrow to Health Health Arrow to Fitness Fitness & Exercise

fitness & exercise guidesThe benefits of keeping your body fit are similar to keeping your car well maintained... it runs better and stays in good working order longer. The difference is if you neglect it, you can always get a new car.

Today's sedentary lifestyle spent in front of a computer (or for kids, the TV, or both!) means an increasing rise in obesity and diabetes. The cure? You guessed it.

A brisk walk a day can keep the doctor away.

Since the body was meant to move, keeping active can be the natural cure for serious diseases, improving your sex life, or just elevating your daily moods -- as oxygen intake is increased giving your heart, lungs, and other organs the nutrients they need to run at top efficiency.

So — put down that coffee and donut, step slowly away from the kitchen table (or the laptop), and just get moving.

Find out how to do it right at some of the best online resources for facts & information on aerobics, running & jogging, biking, yoga, high impact sports, or low-impact exercises, along with related nutrition how to's for keeping your body firm and fit ...
