Does the activity of the organism affect the DNA ?

Pardon my 'lay' language as this is not my field of science. To elucidate my question, I am interested to find out: for example an organism (father) is unfit, meaning he cannot run for a long distance, his organism is prone to become infected etc.; the son is however doing a lot of exercise during his life, such as martial arts and running, which consequently affects his ability to fight diseases and improves general fitness. So my question is: are genes in the latter organism improved and if the latter organism has a child, will this child inherit the fit body of that organism?
