The physical condition or physical form is not a static concept that remains stable indefinitely but rather is quite the opposite. Our physical form is subject to changes or continuous fluctuations depending on our level of activity or sedentary lifestyle.
It is important that we be aware that our current state of physical fitness is the result of a process of chronic adaptation to a regular practice of physical activity. When we carry out activity or physical exercise adapted in a regular and maintained way, positive adaptations take place that improve our physical state and by extension, our health.
Unfortunately these changes also occur in the opposite direction. When we stop practicing physical exercise, progressive maladjustments occur in our body that lead to a loss of physical form and a deterioration of our functional capacity.
It is very common to enter a negative expiration of physical loss that begins with a period of inactivity. This inactivity or sedentary lifestyle will cause a loss of our physical condition (worsening of our levels of strength, endurance, mobility, neuromotor abilities or body composition). This decrease in our physical form leads to a parallel worse physiological or psychological parameters that result in the appearance of some problems or diseases and in general, to a worse functioning of our systems.
This malfunction of organs or systems in turn cause a loss of the state of balance or homeostasis so necessary for our body to function correctly and efficiently. This lower efficiency leads to an unnecessary loss of energy, having a daily perception of being tired and unwilling to do any kind of activity. We also have a worse psychological attitude to any type of energy demand. In these negative conditions, both physical and psychological, it is very difficult to start or continue an exercise program, increasing the risk of abandonment and increasing even more our sedentary state. And so, we continue in this negative spiral that leads to a continuous and progressive worsening of our physical form.
At the opposite pole we have the positive spiral of improvement of our fitness state, which works just the opposite of the negative. A person who is active usually has a better physiological and psychological functioning of their organs and systems. This entails a better state of balance or homeostasis, with an improvement in the efficiency of our organism. Greater efficiency translates into greater energy savings and a better psychological attitude to any activity that requires a significant energy demand. Greater retention and fidelity in the exercise programs that entail a higher level of activity.
Going from the negative expiration to the positive is not an easy task and anyone who tells you otherwise is simplifying the problem in an alarming way.
From Fitcel we are aware of this complexity and we intend to enter your lifestyle as a “partner” that provides the necessary tools to facilitate as much as possible this change from the negative to the positive spiral.
