People Who Do More Live Longer
"Sedentary is not an option for anyone. Being idle is as dangerous for your health as smoking a pack of cigarettes a day. Being active over the long haul requires a frame that is flexible, strong, durable, and balanced. It's all well and good to have "mirror muscles" or advanced running capability, but if your entire frame isn't in shape, you're a candidate for aches and pulls and sprains, for joint dysfunctions and arthritis, and for diminished mobility.
You have desires and expectations for the best of health, but you've also got responsibilities in securing and maintaining it. Being lean and beautiful on the outside isn't enough. You've got to have a structure that's going to support you tomorrow and the next day and the day after. The immutable truth is, people who do more live longer."
