The first one is about health.
The second one is durability.
So 丈夫な体 can mean kinda solid body, and the man who has solid body should be healthy.
And 丈夫 is mainly about physical stuffs, but it can be used in non-physical stuffs such as 丈夫なセキュリティー(literally,a durable security).

健康な means "healthy".
健康な生活が大切です」 It is important to live a healthy life.

丈夫な means "healthy" too, but also means "solid" or "steady".
「彼は丈夫で、病気になったことがない。」 He is very healthy, and he has never been ill.

丈夫な usually is used for boys who is healthy and active.

I hope this helps!

Both ’健康な’ and ’丈夫な’ mean healthy. But you cannot say’健康なテーブル’or '健康ないす' whereas you can say '丈夫なテーブル' and ’丈夫ないす’.

’丈夫なテーブル’ is a sturdy table. ’丈夫ないす’ is a sturdy chair.

「丈夫な」は壊すのが難しいという意味です。'丈夫な' means hard to break.

壊す(こわす)to break, destroy

Kanji for いす is 椅子. イス is katakana for 椅子.
