the Benefits of physical fitness

Exercise, physical activity and physical fitness are three sides to a vital aspect of healthy living. This website and blog are designed to review what we know about these factors and the findings of new research in this field. We know plenty but there is still plenty which we do not know or about which there is uncertainty. It is an evolving science – our understanding of the benefits of exercise and physical fitness is continually being updated by the scientists who investigate the subject. This blog will keep you in touch with these developments. It may even persuade the uncommitted to take up or increase their exercising…..Here’s hoping.
