    been tested in all five components, a physical
    fitness regimen can be tailored to your specific
    needs.

  • The ability of your heart and lungs to work
    together to provide the oxygen required by the
    blood during a workout. The lungs provide oxygen
    to the blood. This blood is pumped by the heart

EFFECTIVE WAYS TO GET FIT AND HEALTHY
  • As far as a healthy lifestyle is concerned two
    factors come into play your diet and the
    physical activity you indulge in. Couch potatoes
    and junk food lovers are generally the ones who
    suffer from health problems such as obesity and
    diabetes, while people who follow the healthy way
    of living tend to have a longer life, free of
    various ailments.

PROPER EXERCISE
  • Experts recommend that you need to exercise at
    least for half an hour every day. Even simple
    walking for an hour or so can help in burning
    calories, and improving the metabolism of your
    body.

HEALTHY DIET
  • When we talk about a healthy diet, it includes
    the food as well as the dietary habits of the
    person. It's important to go for a balanced diet.
    Junk food is a strict no! These unhealthy foods
    are of no help for your overall health.Moreover,
    you also need to monitor 'how' you eat. Even
    though a proper breakfast is a must, stuffing
    yourself early in the morning and going hungry
    for the rest of the day is not a wise thing to
    do. It is better to have small meals frequently
    throughout the day, than having one heavy meal
    and going hungry for hours after that.
