I think that Bell's fitness was also mentioned by Strauss & Flower as something he had to work on, as well as relearning what was required as a batsman. This surprised me as he is one of the more energetic fielders.
I thought he had put on weight but seeing him leap into the air at short leg he probably is quite fit.

The fit looking Cook, Strauss, Pietersen, Broad, Anderson, Shah, Collingwood, Rashid, Davies

carrying a few extra pounds
Bell, Swann, Sidebottom, Harmison, Prior, Bopara, Flintoff, Khan, Panesar
