Health is frequently measured by the absense of illness. A more appropriate measure, however, is physical fitness - optimal functioning of the heart, lungs, muscles, and blood vessels. Most people recognize that exercise is critical to good health, but struggle with psychological blocks to starting or maintaining a conditioning program. Assistance with the aftermath of illness, injury, or surgery may be required. Others are active, but want to take their game or exercise routine to the next level, while some highly skilled athletes experience performance challenges on the field, on stage, at work, or in school due to fear, anxiety, or other factors.
