Fitness, life. Different, or the same?

noun:

  1. the condition of being physically fit and healthy.

Same if you're seeing a therapist you're not totally vibing with [been there], ditch em'.. find someone else. We might be holding ourselves back looking through wellness and healing through a single lens of fitness is simply physical health...
