    Did you want a structure? I don;t know your level of knowledge but

    you could explain about the interrelation between

    - Diet
    - Training/exercise and
    - Lifestyle (sleep, stress etc)

    And/or explain about the different components of fitness (see here: http://www.muscletalk.co.uk/newsletter-1107.aspx ), and how you have to support it with diet and lifestyle.

    Use technical language, but make your points clear. You could tell them exactly how that biscuit their eating can turn into fat.
    Tell them being fit and healthy concerns everyone in the world, not just top athletes! Try to break the misconception many people have- if I talk anything about being fit and healthy people say- "yeh but that only matters because you train!"


    Off topic
    Drew-good article, until the last couple of paragraphs- "Tour de France riders are not fit"??? I mean, I understand your point, but in terms of the general population, they are!

    * Speed
    * Strength
    * Power generation
    * Strength endurance
    * Flexibility
    * Range of motion
    * Coordination
    * Balance
    * Agility
    * Cardiovascular endurance
    To ride bikes like them, you would have to have each of these IMO.

    Sorry just to answer this, I realize it;s off topic so FBG if you want to come back we'll do it in another thread.

    You have to look at the athlete no matter the sport and think about what they're doing and how they're doing it. They are sat in one position doing one task, albeit at a high level, for a long time, and to the detriment of everything else.

    Do you consider yourself part of the normal fitness level for the general population? Did I write the piece for MT or did I write it for Womans Own? Look at the first lines of the article, you'll see I'm not addressing the general population. However lets take this point by point...

    * Speed - yes, in the legs, predominantly in one motor pattern
    * Strength - of course but honed to one motor pattern predominantly the legs, it doesn't carry over into another tasks as well as you;d think
    * Power generation - ^^^^^
    * Strength endurance - as above
    * Flexibility - cyclists have poor general flexibility
    * Range of motion - ^^^
    * Coordination - not really, the are locked into a single position so this is not really used
    * Balance - in the cycling position
    * Agility are you kidding me? On a bike? No, they have little need for it n fact they may even loose what they have due to being on the bike locked into one motor patter
    * Cardiovascular endurance - of course I will concede this!
    To ride bikes like them, you would have to have each of these IMO.


    Mate, there's a reason I chose the Tour riders! These guys are freaks, they are incredible machines, if you look at any one of these guys, even if they had not taken up cycling they would probably have far great endurance and CV capacity than the 'general population' HOWEVER given their level of training they don't display fitness. The specialization means they develop down one road in certain extreme ways so much so that they even may score worse on some things than the general population or how they would have had they not taken up the sport.

    Do you see? Have I convinced you? Still think the last couple of paragraphs are 'not good'?

    The 'proof' is of course when you get a cyclist who tries to become a triathlete. Hooo boy, it's very often pretty messy
