Fit for Life
This media asset was adapted from the In the Mix DVD "Fit for Life...Eat Smart and Exercise."
Physical activity is an important part of good health. When done as exercise—that is, in a regular and planned way—it can give you energy for your daily activities and keep your weight at a healthy level. It strengthens both muscles and bones, raises heart and lung function, and can even build self-confidence—making you feel better about yourself!
