At work I posed the question about the definition of athleticism. My point was to show that we inadvertently see primarily athletes as athletic but we have to consider that all people have a certain degree of athleticism just to live life. this idea I heard of first from Gary Gray a physical therapist from Adrian Michigan. He poses the idea that even the "little old lady" walking down the street is an athlete. She too must demonstrate a certain level of skill just to get groceries or to walk. However in my attempt to discuss the via email with my co workers the default is back to athletes only. You con't have to be in a competitive arena to display athleticism.
What are your thoughts?
