The “Why” Behind Fitness

There is a recurring notion that health looks different for everyone. It is similar to why people choose to begin their fitness journey – there isn’t one “correct” reason. Some are in the gym for stress relief, to improve physical health, to gain followers on social media – the list goes on.

If you look up the definition of fitness, it comes up as “the quality or state of being fit,” according to Merriam-Webster. That sure leaves a lot up for interpretation.

How is being “fit” measured? By your waist size, how big your muscles are, or how many miles you can run? We know the answer can be something different depending on whom you ask, and we wanted some answers!

In celebration of this year’s National Fitness Day, we asked some of our Members and Team Members what fitness means to them. Here are just a handful of the answers we got:

  • “…that I have found my community and we’re all on this journey together.”
  • “…being able to stay calm in hard situations.”
  • “…pushing my limits.”
  • “…increasing life longevity.”
  • “…having the overall health and wellness to be able to continue to do what we love for as long as we want to…”
  • “…keeping my body ready to play in the mountains.”
  • “…focusing on your mental health and your wellbeing.”
  • “It’s a way of life.”

We heard everything from having the energy to play with dogs to finally making time for fun after raising children. Every answer was inspiring and proved that fitness means something different to everyone. Fitness is, undoubtedly, life-changing.
