Fitness to you means achieving your current goal. You go all out and attain it you do! But beware, you are very likely to give up once you feel you have the body you want.
This causes the yo yo syndrome; making you bounce in and out of good health and shape. In turn it could lead to health hazards.
Try to find a fitness plan that you enjoy and are happy to achieve your goal as a by. product of staying fit.
Fitness is your religion
You are definitely committed to being and remaining fit lifelong!
You enjoy your workouts, have a realistic goal and weave fitness into your daily life with the right spirit. As a result you have a trim and shapely body; radiating good health!
Your attitude towards fitness is casual. This makes your workouts irregular and half hearted. Your lack of commitment could largely be because you haven't picked a form of exercise you can enjoy.
Try something different; a sport, cycling, swimming, tae kwando, Bollywood dancing or boot camp.
