How to live the health and fitness lifestyle.

The health and fitness lifestyle is actually not something that is only a state of your physical health but includes all the additional benefits that can be achieved including mental well-being. Although this is more of an attitude than anything else it is nevertheless something that is very specific.

There are some factors you can control or improve and some factors that you cannot because of your genetic liabilities that you carry or any disability that you might have. These are things like your height, your Somatotype which is your body size and shape can impact upon how suited you are to some sports for example.

Probably the most important of these factors that influence your healthy lifestyle are the mental factors or your mental outlook in general. It is important to note that stress and anxiety involved in work and training can directly affect our fitness.

A vitally important factor of any healthy lifestyle is your diet. A good diet is balanced to provide all the nutrients we need to keep fit and healthy. There are two very specific forms of fitness and they are cardiovascular fitness and muscular fitness:

Cardiovascular Fitness is the ability of your heart and lungs to keep your working muscles supplied with Oxygen. While muscular fitness is when your muscles are strong and can apply a lot of force to push, pull, lift and throw things.

Below is an official list of the specific healthy lifestyle attributes that can be very specifically defined in creating a general sense of well-being and health. The healthy lifestyle that you enjoy can be broken down into specific categories listed below.
