A physically fit person has lots of stamina for physical exercise, has a strong immune system, and is lean and muscular. Many people get exercise by walking, running, cycling, swimming, or playing in team sports. Specialized fitness equipment is available for most of these activities.

Weight training can increase muscle mass and improve endurance during strenuous exercise.
