INSPIRING PHOTOS: Ghanaian celebrities who show us how they get fit

Health is wealth, but the focus on gaining wealth has become the order of the day to the extent that the majority of us neglect our health in order to ensure our money bags continue to grow bigger. Staying healthy is one of the best treatments one can give to him or herself.

Self-inflicted diseases which arise as a result of a lack of physical exercise is definitely not the way to go. And when we talk about fitness, people seem to picture the physique of a “macho man”. But fitness is individualized. Confused?

Even in the world of sports, what amounts to being fit differ. The fitness a boxer or wrestler requires is not the same as the fitness a footballer or a 100m athlete requires. In the same vein, the fitness a market woman needs is different from the fitness a journalist requires. This is seen in the intensity and variety of exercises which are supposed to be done by people in various professions.

What exactly is fitness? Fitness is having enough energy to undergo your daily pursuits without undue fatigue with stores of energy to attend to emergencies. There are health and skill components of fitness. The health components of fitness include; flexibility, body composition, muscular strength, muscular endurance and cardiorespiratory endurance. The skill-related components of fitness include; agility, body balance, coordination, reaction time et al.

The bottom line is that irrespective of one’s profession, all exercises undertaken must enhance the health-related components of fitness. Exercise is also any bodily movement undertaken by the skeletal muscles where the energy required to undertake such movements goes beyond the basal levels. Basal energy levels refer to the energy the body requires to maintain life processes such as breathing, digestion, respiration et al.

So well, celebrities need to stay healthy to stay alive and keep us entertained. Over the years, some celebrities have shown that they do not joke with their fitness and have taken it as a point to exercise. The health benefits of exercise are also enormous; a reduction in the resting heart rate, strengthening of the body’s bones and muscles, the release of the feel-good hormones, reduction in stress levels as well as improvement in the ability to concentrate are but a few to mention.
