Of course each of
the above has more benefits than we have listed
here, and the
individual web pages on this site
will cover these in more detail. If you are
thinking of joining a (women's) fitness
program, make sure that at least the first three
above are included. The mental aspect is
important too, and you need to embrace the idea
of the all-round approach to keeping fit.
So why is each of
these important to your health and fitness?
Because they are all
connected. If you exercise, then you will feel
hungrier. So eating a lot of food that is not

will develop an imbalance in some of your leg
muscles, and your upper body will not get much
of a work-out at all. Meditation is like an
exercise for the mind and will help not only with your
fitness goals but with your life in general.

As a woman, you
have a lot of demands on your time and are
probably wondering exactly how to get in to shape.
Keeping fit, losing weight and maintaining a
healthy lifestyle requires time. So... if you
are able to do this, joining a club is
a great help to getting started, and to keeping
going. The local fitness gym is a good place to
start, especially if they offer a fitness for women program. A running or walking club is a great help
because you can learn first-hand from others.
Also if you have paid fees to join, you are more
likely to keep up your fitness activities.
