1. Fit for Health
The World Health Organisation defines health as:
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity”.
Two thirds of the adult UK population is now considered obese. According to figures from the National Audit Office, obesity can take up to nine years off your lifespan. You are also far more likely to get many other problems, including:
- heart disease
- high blood pressure
If you are suffering from any of the above, you have a very good chance of controlling or even improving your condition by simply having a more active lifestyle and improving your diet. The short term symptoms of obesity include:
- Difficulty breathing when walking
- Uncontrollable sweating when doing daily tasks such as shopping etc
- Can’t cope with sudden activity
- Feeling worn out most days
- Back and joint pains.
Some long term symptoms of obesity include:
- High blood pressure
- Heart disease and stroke
- High cholesterol levels
- Breast cancer in women
- Gall bladder disease
- Arthritis in the joints eg back, hips, knees and ankles
- Type 2 diabetes
- Reduced life expectancy.
There are also psychological problems associated with obesity, including:
- Low self-esteem
- Low self confidence
- Feeling isolated in society
- Reduced mobility and independence leading to a poor quality of life.

2. Fit for Life
A very common goal is to simply “tone up, lose weight and get a bit fitter”. The reasons for this are many and varied, but include:
- Cant fit in the same clothes as you used to
- An upcoming event (holiday, wedding, reunion etc) and you want to look good
- Want a change in your life for the better
- Want to be able to do better in your job/ hobbies
To lose weight, you need a calorie controlled, healthy diet (see our infosheet “Introduction to How to Lose Weight”). To tone up, you need to use your bodies muscles more than you do currently (see our infosheet “Weight Training: Toning, size, endurance & strength”). To get a bit fitter, you need to get out of breath for at least 30 minutes, more often than you do currently (see our infosheet “An Introduction to Getting Fitter”)

3. Fit for Performance
Sports/athletic performance is very competitive. So if you want to be good enough, you must be able to train your body to do the right things in the right way. Depending on your sport, you may need to specifically train your:
- Aerobic conditioning
- Anaerobic conditioning
- Muscular strength, endurance, hypertrophy, explosiveness.
- Proprioception (body position awareness)
- Injury resistance
Many athletes mistakenly waste time training the wrong way, so never live up to their true potential. Do you want to spend hours in the gym doing exercises that are going to do nothing to help your performance?
