The term “Fitness” means different things to different people. To some, it means they are lean and “in shape”. Others view it as being muscular and strong, while still others view a high level of fitness as the ability to compete at their chosen sport at a high level.
The simplest way to interpret term “fitness” is as an individual’s best physical version of themselves, which means they interpret being fit through their own prism of what they deem their ideal physical self.
That is why there is no one fitness regimen for all people. It’s all subject to interpretation. So in order to “get fit”, you must first clearly define exactly what that means to you, in specific and measurable terms. Only then can you start working towards that ideal version of yourself.
There are three commonly known components of fitness: Strength Training, Cardiovascular Conditioning, and Nutrition. Equally important, but often overlooked, are adequate water intake and adequate sleep. On a daily basis, a non-exercising individual should consume the same number in ounces as half their body weight in pounds (i.e. a 200 pound man should drink 100 ounces of water). And whenever possible, always try to get a minimum of 7 hours sleep, preferably 8 hours, every night. Never overlook these, as they will undercut all the work you put in at the gym.
