Staying fit is based around physcial movements, a clean diet, strong will and a powerful drive to succeed in life. Sports covers all of these areas. You do not have to go to a gym to stay fit. Participating in sports is essential to bettering overall functionality of your body, and it builds team work, which can be applied to family, jobs or spouse.
