1. How much a person sweats during his or her fitness routine is the best indicator of exercise intensity.

The more intense a fitness program is, the faster the heart will beat. Monitoring heart rate is therefore the best indicator of exercise intensity. Sweat is only a side measure of the intensity. Raising the heart rate to a healthy level and maintaining that level throughout a workout is the best way to have an intense workout.

2. Walking is a great fitness activity.

A fitness routine does not have to be hard or expensive to achieve. Walking is a great exercise that is easy to do and can be done anywhere. Walking is also low risk activity that reduces blood cholesterol and pressure levels while burning calories. Taking the time in the early morning or late afternoon can be a great way to enjoy nature and get a good workout. Listening to music or bringing a friend along on the walk can be a great way to think of the activity as an enjoyable experience rather than a grueling workout.

3. If an individual quits his or her fitness routine, muscles turns to fat.

Quitting a fitness program will cause muscles to shrink. However, the lack of activity can in no way turn muscle into fat. Muscle and fat are two different types of tissue.

4. It is best to choose a fitness instructor with a certification.

When choosing an instructor for a fitness routine, it is necessary to check if they are certified. This will ensure that the instructor has the knowledge to assist with a safe and effective workout. Instructors with experience and a great deal of knowledge of both exercise and diet can be most effective in teaching and helping to achieve any goals.

5. Being healthy and in shape is a way to honor God with our bodies.

1 Corinthians 6:19-20 - What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
