Fitness is a condition that helps people feel and do their best. Fitness helps our bodies perform what we need, whether it is enjoying a walk, doing household tasks or running a marathon. When you set your fitness goals, you should consider your skills, age, fitness level and health. When you start out slowly, you will slowly progress to the higher levels.   Whether you are new to fitness or a fitness-guru, you should always start with a warm-up and end with a cool-down. A warm-up includes ten to fifteen minutes of low-intensity activity, such as jogging, walking, arm circles, trunk rotations or knee lifts. A cool-down includes ten minutes of low-level exercise, slow walking and stretching. As a rule of thumb, you should try to perform moderate intensity activity most days of the week, for example, do brisk walking.   Fitness is available to anyone. Everyone can increase their level of fitness if they have motivation and willingness to adjust their lifestyle to their fitness goals.
