Specialised definition of the noun fitness
Glossary of sports
one capacity to perform work (exercise) of a specific intensity and duration; may be aerobic, anaerobic, or muscular (Mark H. Anshel. 1991. Dictionary of the Sport and Exercise Sciences. Human Kinetics Books Champaign, Illinois)
the fact of being strong and healthy (2006. Dictionary of Sport and Exercise Science. A&C Black Publishers Ltd)
the good physical state of an individual achieved by means of sport training. Fitness has physical, mental, social, and psychological interacting components. In a narrower sense fitness is often understood as "physical fitness". Physical fitness is predominantly based on favourable anthropometric prerequisites (e.g. physical dimensions of the body, skinfold thickness, etc.), good perceptive abilities (visual, auditive, tactile, kinaesthetic), conditional characteristics (strength, speed, endurance, flexibility), coordinative motor characteristics (balance, ability for motor combination, agility, recreation ability) and body experience. Among the numerous models of physical fitness the one developed by E. Fleishman in 1964 is used widely; it defines that physical fitness is characterized by the following factors: static and dynamic flexibility, explosive strength, static strength, trunk strength, total body coordination, balance, and endurance. Sometimes a differentiation is made between physical (as a general foundation) and motor fitness (as the ability to utilize these foundations to produce movement). Furthermore, physical fitness is frequently equated with terms like: health, well-being, balance, etc. Therefore, the following are regarded as objectives of the strive for fitness: prevention of diseases, slowing down the process of ageing, improving professional performance, optimizing the motor system, producing a feeling of well-being, self-realization, and maintaining contact with the environment. Physical fitness viewed under this perspective represents a very complex personality trait, which also explains the emergence (since the 1950s) of the fitness movement (trimm campaign). Among other developments, this movement resulted in the construction of numerous forest, trimm and fitness trails, a large supply of programs for home training, the organization of fitness runs and walks, the development of aerobics, and the emergence of commercial fitness studios (fitness centers). In connection with efforts towards providing a sensible control of the fitness movement, several fitness tests have been developed (e.g. Cooper-test), by means of which the fitness state can be tested objectively; a specific adequate fitness training program can be followed based on results from such fitness tests.

- Fitness is a musical genre.
- Fitness is a central idea in evolutionary theory. It can be defined either with respect to a genotype or to a phenotype in a given environment. In either case, it describes the ability to both survive and reproduce, and is equal to the average contribution to the gene pool of the next generation that is made by an average individual of the specified genotype or phenotype. The term "Darwinian fitness" is often used to make clear the distinction with physical fitness. If differences between alleles of a given gene affect Darwinian fitness, then the frequencies of the alleles will change across generations; the alleles with higher fitness become more common. This process is called natural selection.

- Outdoor fitness, guerrilla style
A new style of outdoor fitness drags ancient Roman workouts into the 21st century.
The Centurion Method is a new system of outdoor fitness originating from the city of Bath city in the UK (or Aquae Suilis as the Romans knew it), which focuses on natural, functional and health based movement designed to push the average human to their full genetic potential. It is based upon the idea that the toughest and most hardy soldiers who ever lived were the Legionnaires of the Empire of Ancient Rome. They trained, much like the Spartans, with full armour, shield, helmet and weapon, doing long distance runs and marches with little food and exposure to the elements. Their training was hard, painful and designed to make them comfortable with suffering and pain. The Centurion Method seeks to emulate that dedication, asceticism and mental endurance to create athletes and above all humans who can do what they were born to do.
The Centurion Method was created by outdoor fitness veterans Craig and Lucy Fraser from a ten year foundation of outdoor endurance fitness.
