The popular Latin-inspired dance-fitness class has caught millions of exercisers eyes with a fun fusion of dance steps and moves like Salsa, Merengue, Reggaeton and, the other sort of choreography you might see in a nightclub.
The notion of physical fitness consists of two related concepts: the first one includes general physical and mental well-being, and means the ability to perform everyday physical activity without undue fatigue and the capacity to cope with the stress. The second one is a specific fitness activity based on the ability to engage in certain sports disciplines or other activities. Physical fitness of a body and mind is generally achieved by the means of regular exercise, healthy and balanced nutrition and rest.
The origins of the fitness are connected to the invention and spread of the basic form of recreational exercise called aerobics. The inventor of this form of exercise is considered to be Dr. Kenneth Cooper, who worked with NASA ad was occupied in creation of the conditioning program preparing America’s astronauts for space and in-flight anti-deconditioning program to keep astronauts active on board spacecraft. He conducted numerous studies on the many thousands of people who helped him create basics of aerobics. A characteristic feature of “aerobic” (i.e. oxygen) exercises was the activation of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems working in such a way that the body could collect enough oxygen and avoid periods of hypoxia.
It is a fact that exercising daily and eating right can decease your chances of a heart attack by up to 50% If you are interested in quality of life, you need to become physically fit.

According to British non-profit Mind, nine out of 10 women refrain from outdoor physical activity due to low self-esteem coupled with high self-consciousness.
In order to do so you must have a well-balanced/ nutritious diet, regular amounts of physical activity, avoidance of risky behavior (smoking and drugs) and having positive thoughts/attitude as well as maintaining a good social relationship with family and friends.
Caregivers who enroll in a gym and then take an elderly person with them get positive responses than those who just encourage the elderly to enroll in a gym program on their own. If the caregiver is not available, he/she can encourage another family member to enroll in one so that they lead by example. A family with an elderly person that just sits on the couch during their free time and watch television and movies has a less fit elderly person than a family that spends the same time outdoors playing a physical game (Silverstein, Silverstein & Nunn, 2002). An environment that brings negative influence to the elderly will get the same negative feedback from the elderly. This group needs encouragement from family members and caregivers, who have the ability to forge a good environment for their physical fitness.
Mind’s findings back up a report by Deadline News contending that more and more Scottish women are patronizing 24-hour gyms to exercise at ungodly hours when crowds are sparse.
This group also requires physical fitness, which can be done in a gym, out doors or even in the house. A caregiver who hardly takes part in any activity that keeps him/her fit is less likely to encourage an elderly person to keep fit than one who takes part in activities that keep him fit. For example, it does not help to tell and elderly man to go for a walk; rather, it is good that the caregiver takes the walk too (Silverstein, Silverstein & Nunn, 2002). The caregiver should ensure that they encourage the elderly to stay outdoors more than indoors. Engaging the elderly in conversations will enable them to be active more than allowing them to stay alone and feel sorry for themselves.
Important factors such as eating right and exercising regularly are major components of a healthy lifestyle that play an important role on how long a person can live.
