Most of the people I know and hangout with think the media has become obsessed with a perfect and ripped body image for males in particular. I believe that being fit and healthy is different than just looking good and being ripped. Scouts need to stay and maintain a appropriate weight for the body size and composition. I am not say all scouts need to look like super jocks but scouts need to be healthy. The only way to figure out if you are a healthy weight and size is to talk to your family physician. This is the only way to know if you are fit. Remember to not measure your level of physical ability against others, measure it against what you think you are capable of and you will rarely let yourself down. Falling into peer pressure is the not solution.
