To get the answers you seek, you need to tailor your questions.
Health & well being is too broad a concept to measure with a single set of metrics. Cardiovascular fitness on the other hand could be measured with some pretty specific metrics.
You need to breakdown what you consider health/wellness is comprised of and measure them independently.
