What is the difference between fitness and wellness?

In this week’s podcast, we talk about the difference between fitness and wellness. We begin by going over the definitions of each: fitness is mainly dealing with just the physical body, while wellness describes all aspects of life, such as mental, financial and social health. We mention how having a “fit” body does not equate to a healthy body. There are plenty of people in the fitness industry that mainly focus on their calorie/macros goals and working out, not the quality of the food they are in taking, stretching or getting enough sleep. We also mention the fact that many people with desk jobs, do not take the time to move around during the day but go to the gym after their work day and think this makes up for being sedentary for eight hours or more. On the contrary, this actually does not equate to having healthy habits and this is something we both agreed we need to work on now. In the end, physical fitness is not enough, you also have to focus on mobility, good nutrition and sleep so later on in life, you are in outstanding health and you can look back and thank yourself for following these overall wellness habits. Thanks for listening!
