New Year Resolution.

I have never have had any resolutions for the new year till date. I usually don’t plan things. I try to go and get it, for I feel its now or never. And for this new year, I know that many of you will be making many resolutions, for I humbly request you to make a resolution to achieve physical fitness. I don’t want you to take physical fitness for granted. The benefit of having a sound body has many advantages. The other day I proved to one of my friend who started frequenting my gym that walking as an exercise is a bad idea. He was of the notion that walking, as universally suggested by doctors to provide over all fitness, to be the best means to achieve fitness.
I asked him to execute a few movements and I could see that he was struggling with those simple moves. I then asked him whether he had felt the same tiredness while he walked? As you might imagine his answer was a big NO. Perhaps, walking as an exercise may work very well for elders who may find a simple and leisurely exercise such as walking to be a difficult task. The elderly population may not have another choice other than walking to keep them mobile. But, if at all they would have planned rigorous workouts on a regular basis from their younger days, it would really benefit them in staying fit and active even in their ripe age.
It merely takes an hour to go through a weight training session. Three or four such sessions per week would do a lot of good to be fit and healthy, which you will continue to benefit for a lifetime if you have it in you to workout on a regular basis. Now, ask the question whether you have it in you to workout regularly?
