1 Physical Activity for Optimal Health and Fitness Module B Lesson 1 Grade 11 Active Healthy Lifestyles

2 Plato (427–347 BCE) “Lack of activity destroys the good condition of every human being, while movement and methodical physical exercise save it and preserve it.”

3 Fitness Benefits of Physical Activity Increases the body’s capacity and efficiency for work Reduces the risk of injury and disease Positively affects body composition – Increased muscle and bone mass, decreased fat mass Increased demands on the cardiovascular, respiratory, muscular, skeletal and nervous systems – Adapt to consistent and progressive increases in the level of work intensity – Results in greater efficiency and increased ability to perform work

4 Noticeable Changes from Physical Activity Increased heart and circulatory function and endurance Increased muscular strength Increased muscular endurance Increased bone strength Increased joint range of motion or flexibility Increased physical work capacity Improved body composition

5 Health Benefits of Physical Activity Physical activity and exercise have a systemic effect – Improved :Cardiovascular, respiratory, muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems – Improved: Endocrine (hormonal responses) and immune (ability to defend against infection) systems

6 Risk Reducing (Disease) Heart attack or heart disease Second heart attack Stroke Colon, lung, breast, prostate, and many other cancers High cholesterol and triglycerides (fats) High blood pressure (hypertension) Abnormal blood sugar levels Type 2 diabetes Osteoporosis (reduced bone density) Pain Arthritis and total hip or knee replacements Depression and anxiety Sleep apnea

7 Other Benefits of Exercise: Improved pain tolerance Improved self-esteem Improved immune system Better posture and balance Decreased incidence of unintended falls Greater energy Improved sleeping habits Faster recovery from injury or surgery Increased high-density lipoproteins (HDL, or the “good” cholesterol) Increased potential to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight by burning calories Improved work capacity Improved nervous system (better neurons)

8 Mental-Emotional Benefits of Exercise: Develop social skills Develop physical skills which contribute to self-efficacy Develop a sense of belonging Develop family relationships Achieve academically in school Prevent or control risky behaviours Develop increased self-discipline, greater self-esteem, and a healthier body image Increase opportunities to take on leadership roles, deal with adversity, and develop the ability to manage time
