I can't remember a time growing up when I wasn't obsessed with my health. As a little kid, I took up running, stretched regularly and lifted small weights to stay fit. I played soccer and ran tract. My main goal was to maintain great form, which enabled me to excel in my extracurricular sport activities. At a young age, I could also appreciate the physical and social benefits of maintaining a nicely toned physique. I wasn't concerned about preventing hypertension or a stroke, but I unconsciously knew staying in shape gave me some form of protection from diseases and was good for my health. I was lucky to have cultivated this mentality at a young age, and it has grown with me to adulthood. Not only am I still obsessed with my health and physical fitness, but I also chose medicine as a career path and now I obsess about other people's health and fitness. My experiences have thought me quite a lot about medicine and public health, and the one thing I always come back to is the fact that we for the most part underestimate how important and how much of an asset our personal health is. From educational and job performance to physical and social well-being, our health and physical form can greatly influence all these aspects of our lives. There is a plethora of research that supports this claim and countless articles have been published about this topic. The question then remains why does a huge portion of the population still ignore their physical health and fitness? The answer is not as simple and straightforward as we'd like it to be. These are the questions we ask ourselves here at Fit-Med Health and work every day to find solutions for. We have a commitment to build healthier communities by empowering individuals to invest in their health.
