We at Fitness World firmly believe in the age-old saying “Prevention Is Better Than Cure”. I am sure you also must be deeply conscious of the drastic change in lifestyle in the last two decades. This has almost eliminated physical activity in people due to the sedentary working style of people coupled with increasing use of junk food. As a result, obesity is increasing at an alarming rate, particularly among young people. .
Changed lifestyle and food habits have obviously resulted in increase in various health complications such as work stress, cardio-vascular diseases, diabetes, hypertension, insomnia, etc. The unfortunate reality is that it has started affecting even the young generation, which is the future of the nation and includes future potential Olympics and other international athletic events winners. This has taken the happiness out of the lives of most people.
Fitness equipment is perceived to be an integral part of preventive health management and not a luxury anymore and is instrumental in avoiding curative therapy, which is very expensive, time-consuming, reduces national productivity and leads to debilitating long-term illnesses.
This is abundantly evident in the phenomenal increase in the number of health clubs and gyms that have mushroomed across the country, even in small towns. Health consciousness has compelled most star-rated hotels and housing societies to open gyms and exercise centres. People have started buying fitness equipment even for their personal use at homes.
Weight-lifting, weight-training, stamina-building, cardio-vascular, etc., exercises, through fitness equipment, enhance the performance of athletes to international levels and can be instrumental in producing Olympic and other international sporting events winners.
This is clearly proved by the Olympic and other international events medal tally of countries such as China, the United States, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, Germany, Australia, South Korea, etc., to name just a few, who use fitness equipment extensively.
International and national agencies such as the World Health Organization and the medical fraternity across the globe are spending astronomical amounts of funds for vigorously and proactively disseminating awareness of the ways of remaining physically and mentally healthy and fit as it not only results in longevity of life but also a comfortable and happy existence.
It is important to understand that a regular exercise regimen not only results in a happy and healthy life but also contributes substantially to productivity.
I would like to encourage each one of you to keep fit and enjoy the tremendous joys of a healthy life. In the ultimate analysis, health is far more important than just wealth. That is why, we have incorporated Fitness Tips and Fitness Newsletter in our website for your benefit.
