  • The importance of being physically fit

    I know that America has been beaten over the head with how important it is to be active and fit. But it is in your best interests to be physically fit for survival reasons. Being physical fit, you'll be able to hike longer, chop more wood, do more chores, and anything else that needs to be done. Also, participating in regular weight-bearing activities, such as weight training and running, strengthens bones and increases bone density. This makes it harder for your bones to break!! As a personal trainer, I think that it should be part of everyone's routine.

          Dude, you got to have a sense of humor around here :D They are yankin' yer chain;)

          I agree, being physically fit is important. I walk 3 miles everyday on my lunch break (nordic walking) and go on longer hikes on the weekend with my 40lb + BOB...

          Need to get back into lifting weights as my bench is at my former location and I have yet to drag it to the sticks :)

          Do you swim cross country??? What happens if the river don't go cross country;):D

          Just kidding :cool: Welcome!!!

          Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to
          beat you to death with it because it is empty.

            I agree, I have never really worked out a day in my life but have always been somewhat naturaly fit. I am now 29 and im starting to feel that I need exersize some to stay in good shape... luckly I work in the construction bizz so that helps,alot of lifting. I like to go on a long bike ride or hike on the weekends or somtimes in the afternoon if I have time. I put on a BOB not exactly sure how much it ways though, but I can feel the burn i know its working... Plus I enjoy to map out trips through thick wooded ereas to test my indurance in the bush..... Works great feels great....:D

                    I quit dipping bout 2 months ago. I had to use meds to do it, didn't have it in me on my own. Bad part is I have put on about 20+ lbs that I now have to start trying to get rid of.
