Fitness and it’s own categories

For those who are just starting out on their fitness path or those unfamiliar with the fitness industry, there are many types of forms of fitness that gets tossed around. There is bodybuilding, weightlifting, powerlifting, strongman lifting, CrossFit, and numerous more. Each of these categories has different goals. For example, a goal of a bodybuilder is to get the best looking physique, meaning low body fat and lean muscles while a powerlifter’s goal is to just lift the heaviest weights possible while maintaining proper form.

It’s best to pick a category that resonates most with you and focus on becoming better. Don’t be scared to experiment if you are unsure of which category may be for you. If it comes down to it, it’s not unheard of for people to do multiple of these categories.

What does fitness really mean?

According to google’s dictionary, fitness is the condition of being physically fit and healthy. While that is true, I feel the term can be broken down into something more broad. For instance, you don’t have to be physically fit in order to be healthy. The term “fit” can be quite subjective and while you may consider someone to be fit, someone else can have opposing views. While there is a correlation with fit and healthy that is not always the case.

To clear any confusion, here at Arlandmac, fitness is a lifestyle. As long as we are utilizing our bodies in a productive way, we are doing something fitness related.
