In order to manifest ultimate health in life, it is important to get in daily physical activity.
There are 5 different areas that you should make sure you are getting during your workouts in order for your body to effectively work as a whole!
Aerobic fitness (otherwise known as cardio) increases the efficiency of your heart, lungs, and vascular system allowing your body to transport oxygen better. It also allows for easier ability to perform everyday tasks. Some examples of cardio exercises you can do: swimming, biking, walking, running, dancing, etc.

Balance Training helps your body to prevent falls and fractures. A good exercise for this would be tai chi.
