Health & Wellbeing Outline

Health and Fitness are simply some of many the different words used to describe people being in good condition. There are many different services and products on offer which promise to improve or maintain a state of wellbeing, and any (or all) of these goods and services might be considered to be part of the health and fitness industry. These can include things as variable as medical services through to fitness, sport, recreation and food. There are three aspects to health:

  • Emotional or Mental health  (Healthy thoughts & attitudes)
  • Structural Health   (The health of the body is structurally sound ‑the bones, muscles, organs etc. are physically in good condition ‑not damaged ‑performing the functions they should perform)
  • Chemical Health   (The chemicals in our body are correct ‑there are no toxic chemicals   ‑the tissues are made up of the appropriate balance of nutrients etc.).

This course builds on that simple concept.
