Physical fitness is the most important ingredient of turning a journey into a success story. So, if you are healthy physically, free from any known or unknown illness, it is more likely and favourable for you to continue your fitness regime. On the contrary, if you do not feel fit from inside it is quite probable that you might not want to continue the same regimen tomorrow.
