In brief: Lifestyle choices

add up to better or not so good health and fitness.
If you have the time and money you can see a personal trainer at a gym. Otherwise, regular exercise, good diet, avoid junk food, social support, give up grudges, all help. Peace and good health.

In brief: Getting fit

31 year old gentleman with a question about getting fit.
That is an excellent question. One must take control of one's diet first and foremost. The NIH has several online resources on eating a healthy diet. Exercise is another component. See your MD and get cleared for an exercise program then consult a personal trainer if possible. Mix cardiovascular and strength training. Good luck.
