We are all getting older.... as we do so (and probably because you are reading this) there is a need to consider whether we think about 'fitness' in the right way.
What should Fitness be about? - the clue is in the name - its about good health - and more importantly - being healthy to operate in the environment we find ourselves and behave (move) as we would like. Our themes and focus really apply to anyone at any age - but are often ignored whilst we are younger or drowned out by distorted messages by parts of the fitness industry. These are set out below - click on the Green heading for more details.
Too often fitness is promoted around themes of body image - what other people see, however you need a body to keep you active and healthy for many years and that starts from within.
Ironically, if you focus on the inside of your body first - you are more likely to improve how you look and maintain a positive cycle of fitness improvement!
It is important to aim to improve slowly and gradually - No 'quick fixes! This reduces the likelihood of injury or harm but also leads to a sustainable approach.
'Functional' Movement is key - which means maintaining a full range of movements to cope with day to day life.
Fitness is often promoted as something you do in a gym as a 'workout' this may suit some people. however it is possible to achieve good fitness and movement without any special fitness 'app's', gym, equipment or 'magic pills', simply by undertaking healthy routine activities.
This is why System Fitness CIC through this web site promotes freely what you can do to improve and maintain your fitness and movement.
