Publisher Description

Fit for Flight:  The purpose of this book is to provide you with basic

guidelines for developing a balanced physical fitness program

and customizing a workout to fit your needs. We recommend that

you consult a physician before starting any type of physical fitness

program. Additionally, an exercise physiologist or professional

trainer can help you personalize a specific fitness program.

Benefits of Being Physically Fit

“Use it or lose it!” That old saying not only relates to certain flying

skills but also to the human body. Muscles that aren’t used tend

to atrophy and weaken. To keep muscles and the cardiovascular

system working at their optimum levels, they must be stimulated

and utilized. Being more physically fit will generally make you look and feel better. Additionally, people that carry too much weight or are bordering on obesity often encounter many health-related problems, ranging from chronic backaches to advanced cardiovascular disease. Finally, a high level of personal fitness can help you to cope with the various emotional and physical stressors that are encountered in the flight environment.
