It may sound odd, but being fit is a state of mind. It also differs from person to person, country to country, …and the answers are always different.
Let us see what it is and what it is not!
a. It surely does not mean you should look like those models who are paid to have that macho but half starved looks!
b. It surely is about not having to take sick leave from office. If you are fit enough to say ‘I did not take any sick leave in the past 5 years’ and you are above 50 years of age, you are there already!
c. If you are a man you must have glanced at those buttox filled boys with ripped muscles, abs, and if you are a woman, you would have glanced at those stunning – machine corrected – women! Well that is surely not fitness.
Now let us see what is being fit:
a. Depending on your age and level of fitness at what speed can you do a 5km run or a 10km run. If you are say 50 years of age and can do a sub 30 5k run, you are fit. However if you are just 25 you may be able to do it in 25 minutes instead of 30.
b. If you have never taken sick leave you are fit….
c. If you can climb 50 steps without panting or resting, you may be fit….
so the list could be pretty long…
