Fitness is an important aspect to develop in life. Fitness helps a person improve his/her abilities and help keep them healthy overall. The word “fitness” involves anything having to do with playing sports or exercising.

One thing that can lead you to a fit life is by exercising. There are two types of exercising that provide different results for the person working out: cardio and strength training. Cardio involves exercises with lighter weights and constant movement, such as jumping jacks or jogging. Strength training is different because it involves exercises with higher weight and less movement, like sit ups and bench presses.
