Fitness versus sport … Fittest population this planet has ever seen

I found a fellow who has some fascinating ideas. [1]

Here’s a sample:

Sport is not the same as fitness. Sport is primarily an entertainment medium dominated by freaks.

The fittest population this planet has ever seen were the “early modern people” of the Upper Palaeolithic, also known as Cro Magnons. If skull capacity is a reliable indicator the Cro Magnons were also more intelligent than we are today. They were also taller. Today’s consumer culture is the culture of the quick fix and painless remedy. If you see the term “gentle exercise”, be on your guard! Cro Magnons had no need for gentle exercise!
