Fitness is “Super Wellness”

CrossFit has observed that every quantifiable measure of health that typically declines with age is improved by exercise. Furthermore, these measures can be placed on a continuum that ranges from sickness to wellness to fitness. From this view fitness is seen to be a hedge against sickness. Blood pressure, body fat, bone density, triglycerides, “good” and “bad” cholesterol, flexibility, and muscle mass each follow this pattern. Done right, fitness provides a nice margin of protection against the ravages of time and disease. Fitness is and should be “super-wellness.” taken from crossfit.com

You can basically be bullet proof to diseases and sickness:-)

Thoughts?

Review the Sickness/Wellness/Fitness section on page 3 of What is Fitness? and watch the Three Dimensional Definition of Fitness and Health by Greg Glassman (2 parts).
