Fitness basics

Getting and staying fit is fundamental to physical, mental and even spiritual health. For the Christian it is wise stewardship of his/her body. Whatever level of health you possess you can always improve it. Exercise, like Bible reading or prayer, needs to be part of our daily routine. A combination of aerobic and resistance training is best. Most sports and games combine the two e.g. badminton, tennis, squash, walking, football etc
