Why You Should Take This AssessmentPhysical fitness can help prevent or manage many chronic diseases and is one of the best things you can do for your body, mind, and spirit. Epidemiological studies show that exercise improves the way your body works, can make you look and feel better, gives you a powerful tool for improving your health, and may even help you live longer.
If you do not currently exercise, you may feel intimidated about starting. Exercise can be a tough adjustment to your lifestyle, but the rewards are great, and the obstacles become easier to overcome as you continue. Through exercise, you can also improve strength and endurance and feel satisfied that you are taking care of yourself.
Even if you do exercise, you may benefit from this assessment because you may sometimes have difficulty maintaining your exercise schedule. And, you may not be including every component of physical activity necessary to be fit.
Take this assessment whether you exercise or you don't. It can help you get started or motivate you to continue.
