Research shows that individuals who participate in physical activities on a regular basis learn new skills and improve performance, while gaining the self-discipline to excel in individual and group activities.

Physical fitness promotes mental alertness and the ability to concentrate. Additionally, physical fitness helps to manage stress and express emotions in healthy way, and encourages positive relations with family and peers.
