Ancient Greece is the most well-known figure in the history of fitness, but it is believed that general fitness played a role in virtually every significant civilization throughout history. The history of fitness and exercise in all of its forms has been pervasive throughout time and space, from the origins of yoga in ancient India to the ferocity of mediaeval European mob football. Yoga is the oldest known form of exercise, dating back to 3300 BCE in India. This mind-body practise has taken on numerous forms since its inception. Other types of yoga, such as Hatha yoga, have also emphasised physical health throughout its history.
