Physical fitness is an important component to leading a healthy lifestyle. The inclusion of regular fitness activity helps students maintain fitness, develop muscular strength and improve cardiovascular health. A regular fitness activity improves the absorption of nutrients by the body, improves digestive processes and increases physiological processes.
The participation in physical education in school provides a positive influence on a student's personality, character and self-esteem. In addition, the team-building process enhances communication skills, and the skills required to get along and cooperate with students of varying ethnic backgrounds and personalities.
A'good workout' helps ease stress, tension and anxiety and will result in better attention in class. Additionally, children learn to develop the notion of fair play, honest competition, good sportsmanship and dealing with both success and defeat.
