The following discussion examines the plausible interdependence of academics, health and wellness, obesity, physical activity and cognition. The relationships are explored in terms of research outcomes that suggest achievement can be associated with fitness. The manner to realize this association between exercise, fitness and achievement are detailed as being predicated upon one another. This configuration leads to conclusions that illuminate several necessary realizations. For instance, fitness does underpin achievement and school performance and the mind and body are most effective when such variables as diet, rest, and exercise are attended to and maintained in a healthy manner.
