When we talk about fitness we’re generally talking about our overall state of health, usually a result of good eating habits and exercise. But there is more to it than that. Fitness is different for each individual based on their own ability. Fitness for a teen is a lot different than fitness for someone in their 60s. And the focus of being fit is also different. Teens want to be able to compete in sports for fun or for school. Seniors focus more on being able to do activities of daily living with ease and without injury.
