An athlete (also known as a sportsman or a sportswoman) is a person who participates in one or more sports that require physical strength, speed, or endurance on the part of the competitor. The usage of the word in a variety of activities, such as golf or car racing, has become a contentious topic of discussion.

Athletes may be either professionals or amateurs in their sport. The majority of professional athletes have exceptionally well-developed physiques, which they have achieved via intensive physical training and tight workout regimens, which are supplemented by a strict nutrition regimen.
