Abstract

[Extract] Physical fitness is not health. Although fitness and health are related, they are not mutually inclusive. More than just the absence of disease, the concept of health encompassed lifestyle factors (such as cigarette smoking and alcohol intake), medical factors (such as risk of cardiovascular disease), and even mental well-being (including levels of stress and fatigue). considering this, physical conditioning can be used to increase fitness and health. For example, physical training regimens to improve fitness often have associated health benefits, such as reducing obesity and the risk of cardiovascular disease. However, a physical training regimen that is excessive can actually reduce health. A very fit person suffering from chronic injury or over training may be fit but not healthy. Thus, fitness and health are related and should complement each other where possible. Wellness programs to optimize health have the potential to reduce the risk of illnesses and diseases found in tactical populations and, in turn, optimize the conditioning and longevity of tactical athletes.
