The definition of health is fitness + luck over a sustainable period of time (your lifespan).
The short answer to the question above is yes, or at the very least it definitely won’t hurt.
Obviously, if you get hit by a bus (bad luck) no matter how big, strong, and fit you are it’s probably not going to matter!
But if you don’t get hit by said bus and you consistently work on your healthy lifestyle habits (sleep, hydration, eating real foods, not too much AND daily movement) and move closer to fitness and further away from sickness you will undoubtedly be more resilient and have greater abilities to recover from future sickness and injury, think of it as your greatest, most valuable insurance policy.
It also got me thinking of The Sickness-Wellness-Fitness Continuum pictured below from CrossFit.
The leading cause of death (over 70%) worldwide is chronic disease. Chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, and certain cancers are mostly preventable with diet and exercise. Over 80% of health costs are for treating (mostly unsuccessfully) chronic disease as well.
So why should you strive to be closer to FITNESS?
We find that fitness can act as added protection against sickness or injury. The fit person has to regress to wellness to reach actual sickness.
One study recently found that about 92.3% of COVID related deaths had co-morbidities present, meaning that the deaths potentially could have been prevented if the person were healthier to begin with.
