Get Fit with Sports, or Get Fit for Sports?

One common advice I always hear people giving to overweight people is You Should Play Some Sports or Go and run. While they are advice given out of good intention for them to lose weight, but if these overweight people were to take up this advice, they are at risk of injury in many ways, due to being physically unconditioned.

(Guest Post) Fitting In Fitness by David Haas

This post is my blog's first ever guest post entry by David Haas who is member in a cancer support group and awareness program advocate at the Mesothelioma Cancer Alliance.
Just about everyone knows that physical fitness is good for the body. Fewer people know that it is also good for the mind and soul. Even fewer people know that only 150 minutes per week of moderate exercise is enough to keep them physically fit and reduce their risk of certain types of cancer by as much as 40 percent; this is in addition to their lowered risk of other potential diseases such as heart disease and diabetes. People that are already suffering from cancer, even the rare forms of cancer, such as mesothelioma, can benefit from moderate exercise for 150 minutes each week.
