Fit, Healthy, or Whole. Which are you?

You are a complete system consisting of body, mind, and spirit. The quality of your life depends on how well you manage each part.

Fitness, Health, and Wholeness are not the same thing.  Fitness relates to how much physical activity you can do. Health is focused on you being free of illness or injury. Wholeness is centered on your emotional and spiritual wellbeing.

Here is another way of looking at the difference between Fitness, Health, and Wholeness:

  • Fitness is about your body.
  • Health is about your body and mind.
  • Wholeness is about your body, mind, and spirit.

Look. Feel. Be.

Fitness tends to pay attention to how you look. Health becomes a matter whether or not you feel sick. Wholeness usually translates to how happy you are.

Be. Feel. Look.

Begin with BEing whole, and you will FEEL better. When you FEEL better, you LOOK better. Put Wholeness first, and soon Health and Fitness follow.


Fitness, Health, and Wholeness are not mutually exclusive. It’s not a case of either/or. It’s a matter of AND.

You can be fit AND healthy AND whole.

There is no “one little secret to being fit.” No “key to health.” No “formula for wholeness.” Because you are a system of all three, you must manage all three. It takes intentional planning and diligent effort. Some days you’ll do better than others. Do it consistently enough, and you will become Whole, Healthy, and Fit.
