Who’s Fit?

One of CrossFit’s early moments of genius is its definitions of fitness, the most famous of which is the 10 Attributes of Fitness–strength, power, speed, endurance, stamina, coordination, agility, balance, flexibility, accuracy.

CrossFit probably tests these attributes more thoroughly than any other competition, but many other sports also require a lot, if not all of the attributes. In my mind, combat sports athletes are possibly the fittest (non-CrossFit) athletes, and they particularly excel at some of the attributes that are hardest to test–coordination, agility, and balance, for example.

What do you think? What athletes do you find to be the fittest?
