Super swimmer Rebecca Adlington has just pushed her body to the limits to grab a bronze medal in the 400m freestyle at London 2012. Hopefully in a couple of days she will add a gold medal to her collection in the 800m.
Stanley Matthews was a fit man. He was still playing competitive football into his fifties and he kept himself in excellent shape. ӆitness is confidence,Ӡhe said and there are a lot of people who would agree with him.
Roger drinks a lot of beer, he eats the wrong food and does not exercise and yet he is as thin as the proverbial rake. Why should this be?
Recently the star striker of Manchester City, Sergio Aguero was injured and unavailable for selection. There is nothing odd in that you may think as footballers are always getting injured.
When you have worked hard all day the last thing you want to do is exercise. The vision of you jogging, swimming or going to the gym gets replaced by one of you sitting in a chair with a nice cup of tea.
Golf, as the old joke goes, is a good walk spoiled. We often forget though that walking is actually a very useful way of exercising.
Jogging again? Going round the same block, running the route you always run, listening to the same music on your i-pod? Are you getting a tad bored with it? Well why not vary your exercise routine with some different exercises.
