Cornerstone Health and Fitness

Working out and staying healthy is a huge part of my life. I always feel better after a spending time at the gym, or just going on a walk. My family also owns a gym, which probably only adds to my love of fitness. My dad owns and operates two gyms, both named Cornerstone Health and Fitness, one in Doylestown, PA; the other in New Hope, Pa.

Physical fitness is used in two close meanings: general fitness (a state of health and well-being) and specific fitness (a task-oriented definition based on the ability to perform specific aspects of sports or occupations).

Physical fitness is the capacity of the heart, blood vessels, lungs, and muscles to function at optimum efficiency. In previous years, fitness was defined as the capacity to carry out the day�s activities without undue fatigue. Automation, increased leisure time, and changes in lifestyles following the industrial revolution meant this criterion was no longer sufficient. Optimum efficiency is the key. Physical fitness is now defined as the body�s ability to function efficiently and effectively in work and leisure activities, to be healthy, to resist hyperkinetic diseases, and to meet emergency situations.
