The The World Health Organisation defines health in it's Constitution as
A state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” 
All in all:
When body, mind and soul are in touch and our souls "fit" happily into our bodies - that's fitness! 
Both the term and the specific exercise method were developedby Kenneth H Cooper M.D., an exercise physiologist, and Col. PaulinePotts, a physical therapist, both in the United States Air Force. Dr.Cooper, an avowed exercise enthusiast, was personally andprofessionally puzzled about why some people with excellent muscular strength were still prone to poor performance at tasks such as long-distance running, swimming, and bicycling. He began measuringsystematic human performance using a bicycle ergometer and beganmeasuring sustained performance in terms of a person's ability to useoxygen. His groundbreaking book,
, was published in 1968, andincluded scientific exercise programs using running, walking, swimmingand bicycling. Cooper's data provided the scientific baseline for almost allmodern aerobics programs, most of which are based on oxygen-consumption equivalency.
American College of Sports Medicine
(ACSM) defines aerobic exercise as
"any activity that uses large muscle groups, can be maintained continuously, and is rhythmic in nature." 
It is a type of exercise thatoverloads the heart and lungs and causes them to work harder than at rest.
