Why should aspiring speakers embrace physical fitness?

Energy, stamina, and executive presence.

Physical fitness is a powerful ally for anyone who must regularly present and pitch to others.

For one it plays a tremendous role in ensuring that you come across with energy and vitality which assists in showing passion and engagement.

Second, it ensures that you have the physical capacity in the form of stamina to endure lengthy or back-to-back engagements.

Thirdly, it helps with your executive presence - how you come across to others - by creating the air of strength and self-leadership which impacts how people see you and receive your message.

To illustrate the point, visualize a presenter who starts to speak but is projecting fatigue and clearly makes no effort to take care of themselves. Now contrast that with one who projects energy and clearly looks like they make the effort to take care of themselves.

What to do?

Move your body regularly, lift heavy things, get sleep, eat right, minimize stress... nothing super special - just do it. Not only will your body thank you, but so will your career.
