Since the beginning of civilization, physical fitness has prevailed as a prerequisite of wholesome survival. Merely to exist is not survival. In Darwin's "Origin of the species" there is mentioned "survival of the fittest". The earliest man was dependent mainly upon his individual strength, vigor, and vitality for physical survival, which involved such basic skills as agility, balance, running, climbing, and others in securing adequate food, shelter, clothing and protection. Even in this age, our astronauts are selected on the basic of their physical fitness along with other criteria, and they spend long hours of fitness testing to qualify them for the many rigorous ordeal they might face.
