Fitness or Physique

For many, physique is the end all and be all of fitness. The belief that fitness means a bigger chest, better frame, and good looking butt with the many other attributes being only side benefits seems to be the dominant theme among the masses. What if I was to argue that fitness and physique are really just dependents, but focusing on the “side benefits” (and I don’t mean the many health benefit) may actually be more benefiacial?

For me, physique is more of a fitness guide, but not my main focus or motivation. I use my physique to plan my fitness routine, exercises, and workout, which muscles require more or less work, but it’s not what drives me to be active or workout. My drive is inner stregnth, personality, capabilities, and determination, fitness of mind as well as body. Focusing on such brings me more enjoyment, accomplishment, and better than ever physical results.

With this I ask you, which one is more important – your fitness or your physique?
