"Fitness has to do with the quality of life, not the quantity."
"Fitness does indeed give us those qualities necessary for leading the good life. We acquire zest and vitality to face the day and its tasks with confidence and enthusiasm. We also produce creative energy, which enables us to be free and spontaneous in problem solving. Fitness opens up the circuits in the amazing storage-and-retrieval system that is our brain. And it gives us another form of energy, the willpower that comes with discipline."
-Dr. George Sheehan, M.D.
