In 2002, Greg Glassman summarized world class fitness in 100 words in a CrossFit Journal article.
Eat meat and vegetables, nuts and seeds, some fruit, little starch and no sugar. Keep intake to levels that will support exercise but not body fat. Practice and train major lifts: Deadlift, clean, squat, presses, C&J, and snatch. Similarly, master the basics of gymnastics: pull-ups, dips, rope climb, push-ups, sit-ups, presses to handstand, pirouettes, flips, splits, and holds. Bike, run, swim, row, etc, hard and fast. Five or six days per week mix these elements in as many combinations and patterns as creativity will allow. Routine is the enemy. Keep workouts short and intense. Regularly learn and play new sports.
The foundation to any fitness program is NUTRITION. It is impossible to outwork a bad eating lifestyle. CrossFit and FIT will help you in your fitness journey, but if you want to feel better and lose weight, get off of the blood pressure medicine, and regulate your blood sugar levels without the use of pharmecuticals, it starts in the kitchen.
