Fitness is Biblical

Found this in my reading yesterday:

Sirach 30:14-17 (NRSV)

14  Better off poor, healthy and fit than rich and afflicted in body.

15  Health and fitness are better than any gold, and a robust body than countless riches.

16  There is no wealth better than health of body, and no gladness above joy of heart.

17  Death is better than a life of misery, and eternal sleep than chronic sickness.
