Benefits to Physical Exercise
Below are listed some health benefits that will come with physical fitness:
Longer and better quality of life, reduced risk of disease, (better immune system) lower blood pressure (stronger heart), control of body weight (obesity), “feel good effect” (confidence).
It is my opinion that all children should have some opportunity to achieve all of the above, but these can only be achieved with regular and safe physical activity.
This is why sport development is such an important growing industry because this will help in the development of a healthy generation. Most of the exercise children get at this present time is in school with structured, regular physical activity in class time. Compare this with 15 or 20 years ago, when computer games or mobile phones television, video games and all the latest computer games where not so popular, children played in the street with each other or hop-scotch, skipping, football, tag etc
If the above advantages are not reason enough to get yourself out to exercise why not exercise with the children by walking, playing football, basketball, trampolining, or even attempt to jog for a short distance together in a park. Make it interesting by running from lamppost to lamppost or corner to corner at different paces. A simple session is to walk 30 seconds, jog 30 seconds and run 30 seconds for as long as is comfortable. Always remember to prepare your body for exercise by doing a short warm-up.
