A person who is fit is capable of living life to its fullest extent. Physical and mental fitness play very important roles in your lives and people who are both, physically and mentally fit are less prone to medical conditions as well. In the pursuit of academic success, children sometimes need a break from the classroom and an opportunity to release pent-up energy. While academic success is no small feat, students who participate in at least one extracurricular physical activity are proven to reap more benefits than those who do not exercise regularly. While the body exercises, the brain releases endorphins. From a biological standpoint alone, students who are physically active are happier and have a constructive outlet through which to relieve stress. People who are physically fit are also healthier, are able to maintain their most optimum weight, and are also not prone to cardiac and other health problems. In order to maintain a relaxed state of mind, a person should be physically active. By becoming more active you can increase your body’s fitness levels and also avoid health problems like diabetes and high blood pressure from developing. Exercise is also good for your joints and makes your body stronger overall.
A person who is fit both physically and mentally is strong enough to face the ups and downs of life and is not affected by drastic changes if they take place. In the case of a cricketer or footballer, they have to be fit in order to achieve results in this highly competitive world of sports. They need to prepare their body to cope with the strains and the energy that is required in order to achieve results. An athlete with the required skills but without the much-needed fitness cannot give good results continuously. Skills are known to be harnessed and developed as the years go by, but fitness is required to complement the skills that a person has for him or her to succeed.
For an athlete to consistently perform during the event, fitness is very important as an athlete with poor fitness will get tired a lot faster. A tired athlete will not be as sharp as he is when he is fresh and to retain freshness levels for a longer period of time, an athlete has to be fit. Fitness and skill are equally important traits that a sportsperson requires and therefore they have to work constantly on developing both at the same time.
