Preface

Physical fitness affects all aspects of our lives. Most of us do realize that. Most of us have also at one time or the other in one way or the other made efforts to improve upon our physical fitness. But unfortunately few of us are able to give as much time and commitment to keeping in shape as we would like to. Why that is so can be answered only by each one of us ourselves.

A majority of us tend to have a perception of physical fitness that comes packaged in images of toned, tanned, muscular bodies that bear down upon us from billboards and media screens. Unusually as instant karma we tend to follow the physical regimens and workouts with a view to transform ourselves into these images. But when we factor in the constraints of occupation are often unrealistic to follow in the real world. As a result a lot of us either lose heart or tend to discontinue these programs.

Fitness however is not confined to these images we set for ourselves. Fitness has many facets both physiological and psychological. It can be of many types. A marathon runner may be considered fit so also a yoga practitioner a Karate black belt or a football star. Understanding what kind of fitness works for us is the key towards improving our abilities in our chosen fields.

If we want to make the most of what life has to offer us we owe it to ourselves to keep our physical faculties as efficient as possible. But only if we enjoy the process are we likely to stick to any fitness regimen.

The pages in this book are not a step by step guide or a means towards fast track fitness. They are to enable you to take a holistic view of its various facets. If in the years ahead you are better off for this awareness this book would have achieved its aim.

Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India.
