Why fitness?

Why run?  Why jump?  Why lift?  Heck... why walk?

What if a buddy of yours gives you a call and wants to run in a local 5k?  You "Just Say No to 5k's" because you know you would not make it past the first 50 yrds.

You just sat down on the couch for ESPN's College Game Day.  Your feet are in mid-flight and almost touch down on the coffee table when the phone rings.

Its your neighbor.

He knows you are home.  He can see your car in the driveway.  Guess what he wants?  He needs your help moving furniture.  You skipped out last time and the time before that...  Your only excuse this time is "I've never told you this but I have a bad back."

Translation:  I'm lazy, I couldn't lift that furniture if I wanted to and my back isn't bad, its weak.

We could go on and on with situations and scenarios of why fitness is important.

But why be fit?  For me it really boils down to this:  You need to be ready for anything.

Even though we live in a very sophisticated society where fitness is seemingly frowned upon, you can not argue that this same sophisticated society contains a plethora of situations where fitness is VITAL.

So...  To be or not to be, that is the question.

I want you to be ready.  I do not want you to have to come up with another excuse of why you can't do this or that.  Do not let not being fit stand in your way of doing anything.  BE READY!
