Physical Fitness News

Find time to exercise
Running to keep up? Try running—or walking or climbing or playing—through everyday life instead to get and stay fit.
Plan a complete training program
If you want your training program to really optimize your performance and fitness, you need to incorporate four kinds of exercise: aerobic, anaerobic, strength, and flexibility.
Jump for fitness
Plyometric training involves the kind of muscle contraction you experience in jumping. Using it as part of your exercise routine can improve your athletic performance.
Strength training to optimize performance
No exercise program is complete without strength training. It contributes to your strength, speed, and size—and makes you look good, too.
No place to exercise?
