PHYSICAL FITNESS AND SAFFER SEX

 

Physical fitness has many definitions. This is because the ability to perform effectively in a physical way depends upon a great many factors. If the will to make a strong physical effort is weak or absent, the results will not reflect a high level of physical fitness. If strength is slight, this will be reflected in the level of fitness achieved. If the nutrition is deficient, then sustained vigorous physical effort will be limited in duration and intensity. If the body mechanics are faulty, the physical effort will lack potential. The simple physics of mass and energy will be reflected in physical performance. No one energy will be reflected in physical performance. No one expects a 260-pound shot-putter to be a champion on the one-mile run. Size and body mechanics make such a performance impossible or highly unlikely. A person may be physically fit for one task, but almost completely unfit for another.
            It is for such reasons that it is difficult to define physical fitness, but, generally physical fitness, but, generally physical fitness is the ability to perform a specific physical task at a high level of effort.
            In 1958 a special joint committee of the America Medical Associated and the American Association for Health, Physical Education and Recreation issued a statement on the role of exercise in fitness which helps to clarify and meaning of this terms.
            It was pointed out in this report that fitness has many components and that emotional and intellectual factors are involved, as well as physical exercises.
This committee stated that: “Fitness for living rested first of all upon a solid foundation of basic good health… fitness for living implies freedom from disease; enough strength, agility, endurance and skill to meet the demands of daily living; reserves sufficient to withstand ordinary stresses without strain; and mental and emotional adjustment appropriate to the nature of the individual. Physical fitness is but one element in total fitness.”

Physical Fitness Requires Physical Exercise

            No person can e physically fit unless he engages in the physical movements that are necessary for a particular task. To run swiftly, a person must train at running. To swim rapidly, an athlete must train at swimming. To run long distances effectively a person must train at running long distances. No one can achieve his utmost potential in physical performance without engaging in whatever vigorous physical exercises may be needed to achieve excellence in the activity.
            Physical fitness cannot be attained by determination alone, nor solely by the application of intelligence to the task; nor can physical fitness be achieved solely by good habits and of nutrition, by freedom from disease, by moral precepts, good sportsmanship or by any other process. Vigorous physical activity must be a part of this pattern.

Physical Fitness Is Partly a Matter of Ethics

            To be physically fit is not enough. The justification of fitness lies not only in the satisfaction or joy of performance that it brings us, but also in the quality and meaning of the physical effort as it concerns those around us.   
            In a wholesome society there is no place for the physically fit but unscrupulous person who uses his strength and agility to assault the innocent. There is no justification in physical fitness that is used do defeat and humiliate those of willing spirit but of far inferior physical ability. There is no moral strength in the debasement of the less gifted.
            Physical fitness must have ethical associations if it is to be respected. Good sportsmanship on the part of the better conditioned athlete is an example of such an association. To lose with good grace, humility and self-respect is another such association.
            When there is a deliberate attempt to injure an opposing player in order to remove him from a game, physical fitness is without moral justification. In sports there is no social, ethical or moral justification for the intentional injury of a competitor. Such conduct on the playing field can never be condoned if respect for physical fitness is to be mainlined.

Physical Fitness Is Partly a matter of spirit

            When a person excels in physical performance, it is partly a matter of determination and spirit. The basic good health in marriage, good body structure, coordination and other attributes may be present, but if a person lacks spirit and determination, he will never use his potential to the fullest; he will never attain maximum physical fitness.    
            The sports world is replete with illustrations of underdog teams that have scored stunning upsets because of the determination, courage and will to win of the players.  Many a less gifted athlete has beaten superior rival simply because he refused to be beaten.  The determination to win exalts and extends a person’s physical capacity.
            Attainment of a high level of physical fitness and success in athletics is sexual related to the attitudes and satisfactions that the participant may have about himself and the physical activities in which he engages.  In other words, when an athlete likes a sport and has a favorable  attitude about his participation in it, he is more apt to succeed.  This was shown in a study  at Cornell University where a comparison was made between 59 athletes  who had won letters in varsity sports and 59 feelings of personal satisfaction regarding team spirit, esteem of their fellow students and participation in general  in varsity sports.
