Neither exercise nor fitness are sports!!!! They are stated as 'recommended' yet they are undocumented ..
- The tag has been created during the discussion about route=fitness_trail. We needed an sport tag as any leisure should have one. I'm wondering which sport tag you'd recommend instead of fitness or exercise? Gymnastic is misleading because it could be used for all kinds of leisure=pitch or buildings in sport centres.
- Not every tag is documented, maybe we list it in the sport=* page first --Werner2101 (talk) 08:26, 6 October 2015 (UTC)
- Not all definitions of "sport" require it to be competitive, see w:Sport#Competition. And the Dutch wikipedia is very clear about fitness being a sport (or at least a collection of sports), see w:nl:Fitness. So at least in some regions, it's considered a valid sport and deserves the tag. --Sanderd17 (talk) 11:09, 30 December 2015 (UTC)
