If you want to build anything great you need strong foundations.

Many people think it's funny that we include fitness as an element of leadership. But there's growing scientific evidence that physical fitness is very important to all aspects of our lives.

Fitness improves mood, it helps deal with stress. It alters the way we look and therefore the way people see and treat us, maybe it shouldn't but it does.

And it's also about fitness of your mind as well as your body. The 2 are intrinsically linked.

Fitness inspires others. We learn about ourselves through physical and mental challenge. We learn to expand our comfort zones and gain more confidence.
