life is more fun when you're fit

HOW YOU CHOOSE TO STAY FIT MIGHT NOT ALIGN WITH THE VIEWS OF OTHER PEOPLE, BUT AS LONG AS YOU'RE ACTIVE, FOLLOW A HEALTHY APPROACH, AND ARE 'LIVING FIT', WHY SHOULD IT MATTER? If there was a one-size-fits-all approach to fitness, don't you think that it would lead to a rather bland existence? What makes being active fun, or functional, is how it makes you feel (strong!), and the opportunities your vigor creates to do the things that you actually enjoy.I said it a while ago, and I'm sure you feel the same – 'I love gym'.
