    bluee,

    Fitness has to do with the condition of your body. This is slightly different than health.

    Like I said above - fitness is the condition that your body is in. To a large majority of Americans this comes down to how your body looks. If someone looks good - if they are not fat and they look strong - then they are 'in shape'. If you are 'in shape' (the word shape refering directly to the way you look) then you have a good fitness level.

    Fitness means that you have a good strong body that looks good.

    Health is somehting different. Health means a balanced lifestyle. A balanced diet. No heavy smoking. No heavy drinking. Efficient movement. The ability to adapt to all environments. And a long life ahead of you.

    When you are writing your project for school- make sure you don't confuse fitness with health. Some levels of fitness are not really healthy for anyone. For example: someone with a 2% body fat is considered to be in great shape. But 2% body fat is not very healthy. Your body can't keep itself very warm (there is no insulation) and it is prone to all sorts of disease and bacterial/viral infections.

    So, being in shape, having a good fitness level is not always the healthiest thing.

    Good luck with your project.
