Some illnesses and afflictions can be prevented by the care and advice you receive at a routine physical. Women and children, particularly benefit from an annual checkup due to their constantly changing bodies. Many insurance companies will pay a percentage of preventive care. Check with your carrier to find out which services they cover.

You can't go wrong with cardio! Your body is still burning calories after a good run. We even burn calories overnight during sleep.
Apply the SMART criteria to each of your goals. Specific goals are easy to understand; for instance, make a goal of "doing 25 push-ups” rather than “increasing upper arm strength.” Measurability allows you to determine whether you achieved your goal – “I will run a mile in five minutes by the end of next week.” Attainable goals are realistic, so you’re more likely to achieve them, and less likely to get frustrated and give up. Make your goals relevant to your needs and situation; if you want to run a 5K in six months, focus on exercises that will increase your stamina. Finally, make your goals time-bound by providing yourself with a deadline. As an added bonus, time-based goals are easier to measure. Write your goals down, periodically review them and don’t be afraid to make revisions.
