Stress relief is one of the many benefits of exercise.

Fitness, on the other hand, takes a slightly different approach to health. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, physical fitness is defined as “a set of attributes that people have or achieve that relates to the ability to performphysical activity.” Within overall fitness lie different attributes—cardiorespiratory capacity, strength, flexibility, speed and power, endurance, body composition, andmore. Someone could be extremely fit, such as a marathon runner, yet be unable to lift anywhere near the same amount of weight as a bodybuilder. Therefore, fitness is a bit trickier to define. Regardless, developing fitness in a specific area will generally improve your overall health. While it’s clear that fitness and nutrition BOTH impact your health, let’s take a closer look at the impact they have on each other.
