Being fit vs being healthy:

 

Being fit

In a few words, fit people have the physical ability to perform athletic activities. This type of person looks good; they can have abs showing up because they do exercise.

Are they healthy? We can’t be sure of that.

Fit people can wake up and feel tired as they been pushing too much in their muscle and their health is not following their physical activity.

 

Being healthy

Healthy people, on the other hand, have all the system in their body which are working in an optimal way. Nervous, muscular, lymphatic, hormonal, etc… Their bodies function well. So they feel good and don’t get sick easily as they have a great immune system.

Free of injuries healthy people should feel fine. They are not tired and have more energy. Finally, they have good mental health and well being.

 

How can you do to be both?

To be healthy and fit it is important to understand the difference between these two. Now that you got it. It’s going to be a matter of moving the body accordingly and eating properly. Thus let’s talk about physical activity and nutrition.

 

Physical activity

To be in great health you need to perform well in physical activity. However, do you know that they are two separates physical activities that can be performed? One is using glycogen and the other is using oxygen as their primary source of fuel. To be in great condition you need to do them both. Let’s see what is aerobic and anaerobic activities so.

 

Aerobic: endurance activity

Aerobic literally means with oxygen. This kind of activity can be found in running, cycling, walking, swimming… They are moderate exercises sustained over a period of time.

Your aerobic system thus uses the precious oxygen you have. This activity is working with your heart, lungs, blood vessels and aerobic muscles. By activating your aerobic system and eating well healthy you burn fat as your primary fuel. That could make you lose this tiny bit of fat on your belly and especially can make you wake up full of energy the next morning.

 

Anaerobic: power activity

Anaerobic literally means with no oxygen. They are exercises that produce a short burst of power. You can find this activity by doing powerlifting, playing tennis, sprinting…

Anaerobic exercises use glycogen as their primary fuel and unfortunately, it can cause the body to store fat and feel depleted of energy at some point. Especially if you don’t eat enough or correctly then.

One simple tip to have a gym routine. This post could help you.

 

A matter of intensity:

So the level of intensity will determine if you are doing aerobic or anaerobic activity.

You can go to the gym and do an hour constantly using oxygen primarily by doing low intensity with a lot of volume reps. So if you can still talk that means, it’s not intense. But if you don’t that means you are working in power. As running on the treadmill, if you run on interval training and go to 70 to 90% of your maximum heart rate beat, you are training your anaerobic system and you won’t do long before getting back to your oxygen.

However, if you run for long like an hour and you can still talk as you are training around 60% of your maximum heart rate beat, you are training your aerobic system.

What I’m personally doing are several sports like tennis or football once a week which can use both systems. Then train 3 to 4 times a week in the gym intensely. Finally, to make sure I use my aerobic system, I run once a week between 45’ and an hour working on my cardio.

So make sure you train both. As if you demand too much at your body and you start to have problems with your metabolism that can cause huge fatigue struggling with weight, mood fluctuation…

 

Nutrition

Healthy nutrition is an essential part, of course, to looks good and also to be healthy. Eating a lot of vegetables will give you the vitamin and the energy to perform well during your day and your activities. Eating good carbs and fats, with also proteins are very important to maintain your body stable and efficient.

There are tons to say about nutrition and eating healthy, so just make sure you eat properly and everything your body needs. Also if you do a lot of exercises think that your body needs more energy, so obviously, more food.

 

A specialist can help

If you are not sure about what to eat or how to train to be fit and healthy. Don’t hesitate to get help with a specialist. Personal trainers, Life coach, nutritionists or other health/sports specialists can advise you. They can take you on a good track for having more energy and feel better.

You can also read this simple tip that I share to you: One simple tip to become healthy. Don’t worry there are a ton of easy ways to get fit. But practice, be patient and good with yourself.

 

Conclusion

The optimal balance of health and fitness is achieved by training your metabolism.

I personally recommend being healthy first as it’s so much power to be in life compare to just looking good.

Also if you want to look good that it’s great I recommend it as well but if you enjoy fitness at the expanse of health, you will not enjoy your spectacular physique long enough.

Health can build fitness, not the opposite. I hope you got the idea and make the distinction between them both.

Be healthy first, then be fit!

 

Be healthy and happy, stay fit! Keep eating broccoli.
