The essay discusses the importance of Physical fitness. First, the definition of physical fitness is given elaborating the five basic components of Physical fitness. This is followed by the Food pyramid recommended by The President’s Council of Physical fitness and Sports. Then the general importance of Physical fitness is discussed in brief. Finally, The importance of physical fitness in reducing stress and pressure is discussed with relevance to the World Bank Report.Many people think that as we age, we tend to slow down and do less; that physical decline is an inevitable consequence of aging. For the most part, this is not true. According to The President's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, much of the physical frailty attributed to aging is actually the result of inactivity, disease, or poor nutrition. But the good news is – many problems can be helped or even reversed by improving lifestyle behaviors. One of the major benefits of regular physical activity is protection against coronary heart disease. Physical activity also provides some protection against other chronic diseases such as adult-onset diabetes, arthritis, hypertension, certain cancers, osteoporosis and depression. In addition, research has proven that exercise can ease tension and reduce the amount of stress you feel.
