Fitness is an important component of a healthy lifestyle for everyone. For athletes, a good fitness routine can help them perform at the highest level during every competition while feeling confident.
The Special Olympics Fit 5 program makes is easy for anyone to get fit. Just remember these three simple actions:
- Exercise 5 days a week
- Eat 5 total fruits & vegetables per day
- Drink 5 bottles of water per day
Hillary Kern, Special Olympics Health Messenger and athlete from Texas, found the Fit 5 program so useful that she made a video series to help other athletes get fit too. She said, “I now have the tools to be in charge of my own fitness. I found out that you can start small, with one change and build on that first step. The process has also helped me think more about nutrition and fueling my body with the right foods ahead of competition.”
