DON’T BE FOOLED: FIT DOESN’T MEAN HEALTHY

by Lyndon Purcell 0

The following is an article that was born from series of posts that I shared on my Instagram story.

I didn’t think much of it at the time, but it seemed to resonate with a lot of people and I had numerous texts and DM’s from both clients and non-clients alike who had found some value in what I said.

Nothing I outlined would be considered revolutionary or ingenious by any stretch of the imagination, however it seemed to help many conceptualise both the similarities and differences between health and fitness.

I will state this now though, this is by no means an extensive article on health. I am open to writing a series of articles on differing components of health if there is an audience who would be interested in that, however this article is just the result of a series of simple, short thoughts, as that is more appropriate to communicating information across social media.

If you are interested in seeing more of my thoughts regarding all aspects health and fitness, then you are welcome to follow me @hot_and_dongerous on Instagram.

Yep! That’s not a joke.

That’s my username and I’m not changing it… I’ll get on with the article now…

“FIT” AND/OR “HEALTHY”

 

Health and fitness are often used synonymously, yet they are divergent in many capacities.

While conclusively defining either can be somewhat problematic, as different branches of healthcare definite then slightly differently, in a very distilled down sense, they equate to the following:

Health: The absence of disease/injury.

Fitness: The condition of being capable to perform a specific task.

An analogy for these two things that I use in presentations or with clients is; Health is like juggling. Each ball represents a different system/component of health and you must keep all of them off the ground in order to remain healthy. Dropping one would result in illness, injury, sickness or psychological issues etc.
