Top 10 Leaders In Wellness & Fitness In Asia - 2023
Strength In Wellness, Balance In Fitness
Strength and Health Service:
Human’s existence and effectiveness depends upon his physical fitness. Fitness specifically refers to physical health, and is the ability to complete a physical task, or the lack of a physical ailment. Wellness, on the other hand, refers to the balance of a spectrum of health-related elements in one's life. It encompasses not only physical fitness but also mental and emotional well-being. Wellness involves taking care of the whole person, including their physical, mental, and emotional health, as well as their social and spiritual well-being. Wellness, on the other hand, is a holistic approach to health and well-being. Fitness and wellness appears to be an amalgam of three principles – primary care, fitness and wellness which can assume distinct identities.
The Fitness and Wellness Leader promotes and supports employee wellbeing, through the development, implementation and monitoring of initiatives that will engage employees, enrich their physical and mental health and wellbeing, and continue to cultivate a healthy performance working culture in the long term.
Fitness can also be the state of health and wellbeing and the ability to perform aspects of one’s daily activities, sports and occupation without any hindrance. Fitness is the condition of being physically fit and healthy and involves attributes that include, but are not limited to mental acuity, cardiorespiratory endurance, muscular strength, muscular endurance, body composition, and flexibility. Physically active state can improve your brain health, help manage weight, reduce the risk of disease, strengthen bones and muscles, and improve your ability to do everyday activities.
Wellness is a dynamic process of change and growth. Wellness can also be described as a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. Wellness is the act of practicing healthy habits on a daily basis to attain better physical and mental health outcomes, so that instead of just surviving, you're thriving. Over all physical wellness encourages the balance of physical activity, nutrition and mental well-being to keep your body in top condition. Obtaining an optimal level of physical wellness allows you to nurture personal responsibility for your own health.
