In today’s busy corporate world it is becoming more and more difficult to find the time for personal fitness. Often however, it is not a lack of time that prevents us from


 becoming physically fit, rather it’s a misunderstanding of the definition of personal fitness. Many people have the misconception that personal fitness is associated with weight lifting and jogging. This is incorrect. Beyond the basic level of fitness needed to reduce the risk of disease processes, personal fitness can be determined as an individualized measurement of ones physical ability to enjoy life, it is not a measure of ones ability to lift heavy weight or run long distances.
