It's been a long road back to health and fitness for me. I am just glad to have been given the opportunity to do what I love most.
Time and health are two precious assets that we don't recognize and appreciate until they have been depleted.
I wanted to get really fit. I wanted to lose some weight. So I've been doing Pilates and yoga, trying to lean out my body so I won't be bulky.
I have been through various fitness regimes. I used to run about five miles a day and I did aerobics for a while.
Don't get me wrong, I think bikes are terrific. I own several of my own, including a trendy mountain style, and ride them for pleasure and light exercise.
So I've broadened the fitness concept to make it one of moderation and balance.
Kenneth H. Cooper
I'm still very professional about my fitness. I stay in trim as I always did.
It's not about weight, it's about fitness, and one component of being fit is to have relatively low body fat, because fat is not very efficient, whereas muscle is.
Exercise is the chief source of improvement in our faculties.
I like to embrace natural beauty. I try to get at least 8 hours of sleep, drinking a lot of water and exercising.
Once you are over 30, 35 years old, I think everyone should get down to the gym and start moving again.
I didn't have the same fitness or ability as the other girls, so I had to beat them with my mind.
I think exercise tests us in so many ways, our skills, our hearts, our ability to bounce back after setbacks. This is the inner beauty of sports and competition, and it can serve us all well as adult athletes.
I started running around my 30th birthday. I wanted to lose weight; I didn't anticipate the serenity. Being in motion, suddenly my body was busy and so my head could work out some issues I had swept under a carpet of wine and cheese. Good therapy, that's a good run.
I've exercised with women so thin that buzzards followed them to their cars.
15 minutes a day! Give me just this and I'll prove I can make you a new man.
You can't get rid of it with exercise alone. You can do the most vigorous exercise and only burn up 300 calories in an hour. If you've got fat on your body, the exercise firms and tones the muscles. But when you use that tape measure, what makes it bigger? It's the fat!
I concentrate on exercises from the waist down, since that is the laziest part of a woman's body.
And I believe that the best buy in public health today must be a combination of regular physical exercise and a healthy diet.
Never hurry. Take plenty of exercise. Always be cheerful. Take all the sleep you need. You may expect to be well.
James Freeman Clarke
A vigorous five-mile walk will do more good for an unhappy but otherwise healthy adult than all the medicine and psychology in the world.
Paul Dudley White
There's a lot of people in this world who spend so much time watching their health that they haven't the time to enjoy it.
When I'm on the road, I'll break my exercise into a cardio session and a weights session.
In the midst of these hard times it is our good health and good sleep that are enjoyable.
A year ago I had a back injury and followed a good nutrition program to help speed up my recovery. I focused on exercise and staying healthy in order to get back out on the ice.
Find fitness with fun dancing. It is fun and makes you forget about the dreaded exercise.
A. P. J. Abdul Kalam
