Any age can achieve peak fitness because achieving peak fitness shouldn’t be limited to working out and should be defined as having the energy  to do mental as well as physical labor. It also means following good health habits designed not only to build and develop your muscles, but sustain your body with the energy and the requirements needed for the performance of your tasks to your fullest potential.

The easiest measure to check your fitness level is your body’s ability to respond to stress. A fit body can mitigate stress better and is better able to respond to stressful events and emergencies. A fit body is a well-oiled machine able to function without the ‘clicks’ and the ‘thuds’. Our body should be able to do its work in much the same way.

Maintain your fitness which develops the muscles and strengthens your body’s capacity to do certain tasks. Sedentary individuals do not only gain more flab in their middle; they are also more prone to injuries and illness. Ten minutes of routine exercise everyday – from something as simple as taking the stairs to stretching and working on the treadmill can help your body maintain its fitness level. Of course, remember not to abuse your body. Don’t over train because too much and too little of anything is bad.
