“What does fit mean?
What does it mean to be fit?” you might ask.
“Well, fit is a word that describes the degree to which a person’s body fits into a standard body size or body shape,” writes the British Medical Journal’s Mark Roberts in his book Body.
“A person’s fit is the degree that their body can be comfortably and efficiently transported to and from work, school and other places.”
“The word fit is used in many ways, not only by clinicians and doctors, but also by other people, including people with disabilities,” he explains.
“It is used to describe how much of your body is visible to other people.
And it’s used by others to describe people who are physically fit, such as people who can do things like run, walk and play.
And fit is not only an accurate descriptor of a person, it’s also an accurate definition of their identity.”
