Learning from different Cultural Fitness Habits

Los Angeles, CA – 11/14/2013

Many nutrition and wellness secrets come from cultures outside America,providing citizens with unique, wholesome ways to become healthier andhappier.  Fitness practices also vary byculture and if we take a look at the methods behind them, we can adapt thepractices of our own culture to more healthier and active lifestyles than theones we currently live. 


Though it sounds like something out of a musical, it’s not unusual tosee Japanese workers, students, or everyday citizens suddenly break out into callisthenicmovements.  The national radio station ofthe Japan plays fifteen minutes of music every day that cue the population toget up and move around.  Citizens canfollow a routine, or make up their own moves as long as they are moving aroundfor a bit to increase blood flow to muscles and improve mental focus.

Citizens in the Netherlands rely less on cars and more on bikes forgeneral tasks such as shopping, commuting, or visiting friends andrelatives.  Over 85 percent of the Dutchpopulation surveyed last year rode their bikes at least once a week for acasual outing.  Whether it’s an actualride through the park, or a trip to the grocery store, hopping on a bike canimprove circulation, and keep money in your wallet by saving on gas costs forsmall errands.


Many Americans love music, but hate the thought of dancing in rhythm toit. In the Cuban culture, movement and music are inseparable concepts.  Cubans dance everywhere: at weddings andsocial events, but also around their homes, at clubs, in schools and at fitnesscenters.  This constant movement is aconstant calorie burner, and it also eases stress and can improve mentalfunction in those who partake in dance classes. With classes like Zumba popping up in fitness centers across America,this is a trend that would be easy to step into.


When looking at the fitness habits of different cultures compared to ourown, we see an emphasis placed not only on physical fitness, but on overallmental and social wellness as well.  Byadapting just a few of these habits into our daily lifestyles, our populationcould reap the health benefits and create our own fitness culture that couldsomeday spread across the world.
