Athletes (also sportsman or sportswoman) are persons who competes in one or more sports that involve physical strength, speed or endurance. The use of the term in several sports, such as golf or auto racing, becomes a controversial issue.

Sportsmen may be professionals or amateurs. Most professional athletes have particularly well-developed physiques obtained by extensive physical training and strict exercise accompanied by a strict dietary regimen.

Sportsmen involved in isotonic exercises have an increased mean left ventricular end-diastolic volume and are less likely to be depressed. Due to their strenuous physical activities, Sportsmen are far more likely than the general population to visit massage salons and pay for services from massotherapists and masseurs. Sportsmen whose sport requires endurance more than strength usually have a lower calorie intake than other Sportsmen.
