Should a medical student promote fitness?

My personal idea is that medical students should be aware of the benefits of physical exercise and start promoting as much as possible a healthy lifestyle, better if they are the first ones to give the good example to their future patients and colleagues. Prevention is indeed better than cure.

What is your experience with fitness? Are you living a sedentary life?

I have written a brief post on the association between muscular strength and mortality based on a very interesting paper I have read. I hope you will find interesting this kind of crosslink on medical issues regarding fitness and lifestyle.
