The Single Most Important Decision For Your Health and Fitness
Posted: September 16, 2019
There was a study done which focused on the most important factor in determining your health and fitness five years from today. Having a Degree in Exercise Physiology, I wondered why they would research a question that had such a simple answer. Clearly the most important factor in determining health and fitness five years from today came down to your consistency to an exercise program. To my surprise…Wrong! Well clearly if it isn’t exercise, then it must be the other major factor that people tend to stumble on; Nutrition. Once again… Wrong!
At this point I have to admit I was skeptical. Studying four years in college taught me that the combination of exercise and nutrition was the key to health and fitness. How could it be anything but your input – what you eat or output – your exercise program?
When I heard the answer I realized that what college did not teach me in its pursuit of a scientific answer, life outside of school had already taught me. The most important factor determining your health and fitness five years from today came down to the people in your immediate social circle.
