We are energy beings made up of microscopic cells that have their own intelligence. These intelligent cells carry out an agenda that directs our bodily functions toward life and good health. This cellular scenario is a foundation for our life experience.
Just for a moment, imagine these cells as employees of your small business, your health. When they have the right work environment, they are very happy and produce a great product, your optimum energy and health. Although they prefer the best conditions possible, the employees do not expect perfect working conditions and are flexible enough to produce a good product in less than perfect working conditions. But when they are asked to work in poor conditions or without the proper resources, a series of negative events takes place.
First, morale suffers. This causes the entire work environment to become stressed. Next, their ability to work suffers. The overall effect is a decline in productivity (a decline in your energy and health). And if these poor conditions go unchanged for a prolonged period of time, the employees eventually reach a breaking point at which they can no longer tolerate them. They resort to drastic measures. They either produce inferior products or they go on strike and shut down completely. This breaking point can manifest in many forms with minor or major consequences to your business (your health).
As the owner of your business, you have a choice about how you want to treat your cellular employees. The beauty of these employees is that most of them are forgiving and remarkably resilient. So when you are ready to correct the poor conditions of the past, they respond with vigor. The smart business owner knows that in this health business, the bottom line is best served by giving the cellular employees the best work environment possible. Doing so improves your chances for feeling good and staying healthy.

Each exercise session should begin with a warm-up and conclude with a cool-down. A warm-up increases blood flow to the working muscles and increases body temperature. This decreases the likelihood of muscular or joint injuries. A warm-up can be in the form of light calisthenics or performing the same exercise activity at a very low intensity. It should last 5-10 minutes, after which time the intensity of the activity can be increased to the higher conditioning levels.

Also known as cardiovascular fitness, cardio-respiratory fitness refers to the capability or fitness level of your heart, blood vessels, lungs and breathing mechanisms. Here is a simplified version of how they work and why they are important:
