When you think of leading a healthy lifestyle, what comes to mind? One of the first things you may think of is eating a healthy diet. Choosing a balanced diet with emphasis on the core food groups is a critical part of promoting your own health. However, foods alone cannot guarantee you are healthy! Regular exercise is a critical component for boosting your personal health. However, each person’s fitness journey is different and unique! Learn more about what exercise you and your body may need during a consultation with Dr. Linell King at Naples Vitality in Naples, FL!
What Is Fitness?
In general, fitness refers to the general combination of proper nutrition, regular physical exercise, and continually making health-conscious choices. There is no one size fits all approach to it, and each person will have different priorities on their journey. The overall goal is to be able to adequately and safely perform the necessary actions during daily life.
What Could I Expect from a Fitness Plan?
Our fitness recommendations focus on building muscle. Building muscle is important, but we are not suggesting pursuing a bodybuilding-style attempt at building muscles. Our plans are intended to:
- Build muscle
- Burn fat
- Improve daily functions
- Strengthen bones
These plans may include anything from simple physical therapy to high intensity training. We recommend working out in 30-40 minute intervals throughout the week. It is important to be realistic about your expectations and abilities when exercising. However, making even small changes is a better choice than choosing to continue poor habits. Results achieved with our recommendations will vary for each person.
Listening to your body is a central component of fitness. While it may feel like a good idea to continually push yourself beyond the limits when exercising, it is important to be mindful of your needs. Allowing yourself to rest is an essential portion of your journey for a healthy lifestyle so you do not injure yourself.
Why Is It Important?
A truly healthy lifestyle is impossible without some aspect of fitness included. It can help promote better overall health functions and may help protect specific areas of the body.
For example, the sacroiliac joint is an important joint that connects the lower spine and pelvis. This joint is impacted by your weight and carries the weight of the upper back. However, exercising can help facilitate proper joint movement and prevent uncomfortable experiences like lower back pain or stiffness in the hips and lower back.
