    health and fitness

    What do you think is the difference betwen "health" and "fitness"? The latter seems to be more on training your body, but I'm not sure.

    Re: health and fitness

    I can be healthy without being fit. Fitness refers to a body that is in good condition. Health refers to not being ill.
