Why should I keep fit?

Why should I keep fit?

Keeping fit will make sure that your body is kept in good working order. It can also help you to maintain a healthy weight and keep you feeling well and full of energy. Your self-confidence will also grow knowing that you look and feel great!

Exercise doesn’t have to be expensive or take up lots of time, and can be fun.

  • Join a school or local sports team or activity club with your friends.
  • Climb the stairs instead of using the lift.
  • Walk or cycle to school rather that taking the bus.

The key to exercise is that you enjoy it!

Don’t forget to check out the leisure facilities provided by your local authority as many have facilities such as tennis courts, football pitches and basketball hoops that you can use free of charge.
