  1. 1. Fitness and Health<br />AS 2.1 (90432) Examine relationships between regular exercise and concepts of fitness and health <br />
  2. 2.
  3. 3. Health can be seen as a holistic thing – there is more than one part to it.<br />You would have looked at this before – the concept of Hauora<br />
  4. 4. HAUORA<br />Remember that, Hauora is a Maori view <br />of Health related to total wellbeing. <br />In the past Health may have been related to <br />the physical aspect fitness or the lack of it and <br />the absence of disease.<br />The body was seen as a machine that had to be maintained – this concept is Healthism. We know that Health is more complicated than this<br />
  5. 5. Mental and Emotional<br />Physical<br />HAUORA<br />Spiritual<br />Social<br />
  6. 6. Hauora is dynamic. It changes depending on circumstances and all parts are interacting. Don’t think of them as acting in isolation<br />Mental and Emotional<br />Physical<br />HAUORA<br />Spiritual<br />Social<br />
  7. 7. Your Health is dynamic – this means that it can change over time or even quickly<br />
  8. 8. We are going to look at the Physical aspect in more detail:<br />Physical Activity is any bodily movement that requires movement of the body and some substantial effort and energy.<br />This may range from a walk to competitive sport<br />Physical activity includes Recreation, Exercise and Fitness<br />
  9. 9. RECREATION<br />Physical Activities done for enjoyment and leisure<br />
  10. 10. Fitness<br />The ability of the body to meet environmental demands.<br />Fitness is relative – people have different demands on them<br />
  11. 11. Exercise<br />Is the link between Health and Fitness.<br />It is the activity you do to improve your Fitness. (remember there are a number of different components of fitness)<br />
  12. 12. Ideas and Attitudes towards Exercise and Fitness<br />Where do you get your ideas from?<br />Peoples ideas are generally determined by the environment they live in and the personal experiences they have had.<br />Experience<br />A boy who is forced to run around the block everyday at primary school even though he hates running and it gives him asthma is more likely to develop a negative attitude .<br />Environment<br />A girls growing up in a sporting family who do lots of fun exercise together is more likely to develop a positive attitude to exercise.<br />

  15. 15. NZ Physical Activity Guidelines<br />
  16. 16. Is it possible to be fit and not healthy?<br />Is it possible to be healthy but not fit?<br />
  17. 17. A number of people automatically take physical fitness to mean healthiness and vice versa. We see this regularly in the media.<br />Based on our definitions we know this is not the case as fitness and health have different meanings. Fitness is linked to the physical aspect of health but health has another three dimensions that are interlinked and dynamic.<br />
