We will be accountable to each other - to provide support, design incentives, share information we come across, and in general cheer each other on and celebrate our steps toward fitness! If anyone happens upon this blog and is inspired to be more fit and healthy that is icing on the cake. So here we go!

Kathy - Physical Fitness

Since we are on a journey to become fit I got to wondering what fitness really is.  I suppose in the final analysis it is different for each of us.  Here are some quotes from personal trainers which might be helpful as you think about accomplishing your goals.

"The human body's ability to move with desired speed, balance, agility and strength gained through proper exercise and nutrition"  Don Hoskins, AZ

"Physical fitness is going through the day with a sense of confidence that you can put whatever the day has in store for you on your back, hold it there for awhile and, and then set it back down later, with good form.  It can give you peace of mind that you are better equipped to handle the physical challenges of daily life, from reaching high to bending low, from running with a purpose, or running with no purpose at all.  Physical fitness is not a race, it is a pursuit.  There is no finish line to look for, but a new starting line to cross everyday.  The only real 'goal' is to never finish."  Tom Bravo, FL

"Physical fitness is training for LIFE.  It's the body's ability to be able to withstand whatever life throws its way!  Sprinting, jumping, walking, playing with the grandchildren...physical fitness is specific to the individual and therefore, training to improve and maintain it should be as well:". Sarah Rippel, LA

Best of luck to each of you in your pursuit of fitness!
