What does it mean to be Fit?

Just like being "happy", or being "skinny"...............being Fit is relative to ones individual perception.

It's an interesting time in Fitness. There is so much evolution happening with Fitness as a sport, which in turn is affecting the perception of Fitness (or what could be considered; Fit) in society.

The general public (who is not committed to a fitness program) commonly sees a lean body, or six pack abs on a magazine cover and says; "Wow, that person is really Fit."

Somehow, the word "Fit" has been connected to an appearance, rather than a lifestyle, a level of human performance, or blood lab results. 

To me, being Fit is SO MUCH DEEPER than an appearance. It's human performance, its healthy blood lab results, it's low body fat (relative to society's norm), it's a lifestyle that demonstrates; a proper/healthy nutrition plan, quality sleep, quality breathing practices, balanced hormone levels, and lastly, physical appearance.

Why is physical appearance last you might ask? Because when the aforementioned list is in order, physical appearance naturally falls into place. 

Being the most FIT version of yourself can "look" different for everyone. YOU get to decide what that "looks" like by your daily decisions. If you want a nice body, you'll figure out a way to put in the work for it and achieve it. If you want to perform well, you'll put in the training time to achieve it. If you want to sleep well each night, you'll make the appropriate decisions to achieve it. 

Today's question for you; what does Fit mean to you? Are your daily actions aligning with this definition of Fit? 

Don't just get caught up in the appearance of Fit, more so the lifestyle of Fitness. 

Make it a great week of Fitness Friends!
