Fitness refers to ability of the body to function with vigor and alertness.
Nutrition refers to the nurturing of our body, in our ability to keep it healthy and functioning as it is supposed to do.

How do we tell?
First, you might want to look at your exercise habits, if there are any. If there aren’t any exercise routines to examine, no fitness.
Everyone, no matter what their age, benefits from exercise.
It keeps our bodies conditioned, our mental sharpness working at top speed, and thanks to the physical aspect, we get a boost to our cardio health, extra calorie burn, and more oxygen to those cells!
Fitness requires us to examine more than just our exercise routine.
The mere definition of fitness refers to the body’s ability to meet physical stresses. That includes coping with our day to day life, getting from the beginning of the day to the end, without being worn completely out.

Massages are the best cure for ridding our bodies of the stress buildup that can occur, even with exercise regimens and detract from our overall fitness.

Running, swimming, jogging, dancing, cycling, and very brisk walking are some of the more popular total body involvement exercises. I found out more abou that here:
There are so many occasions to stop and question our efforts at maintaining optimal health, that we usually don’t even take the time to begin the examination. But it is beneficial to our overall health, the quality and quantity of our life, to make every effort to be fit, healthy, individuals.
