Physical Fitness

Being physically fit enables you to accomplish all aspects of your tasks while avoiding injury and maintaining deployability. The goal is to prevent injury or illness, and  have a speedy recovery if you are injured.

Physical fitness is more than your body mass index, PT run time, or how many push-ups you can do. To optimize your physical fitness you need strength, flexibility, balance, and endurance all working together. For some, exercise is stress release, preventive health, social activity, or even spiritual expression.
