the fitness market


1.1 Definition and presentation

The word fitness derives from the term "fit" and refers to the physical appearance of an individual. Fitness can be defined as physical activity practiced in open air or indoors. Fitness differs from sport in that it is more closely related to physical well-being at an aesthetic level.
