Notes

“while physical training is of limited value, devotion is valuable in every respect, since it holds a promise of life both for the present and for the future.” 1 Timothy 4: 8 - https://bible.usccb.org/bible/1timothy/4
“Do you not know that the runners in the stadium all run in the race, but only one wins the prize? Run so as to win. Every athlete exercises discipline in every way. They do it to win a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one. Thus I do not run aimlessly; I do not fight as if I were shadowboxing. No, I drive my body and train it, for fear that, after having preached to others, I myself should be disqualified.” 1 Cor 9: 24 - 27 - https://bible.usccb.org/bible/1corinthians/9

“If morality requires respect for the life of the body, it does not make it an absolute value. It rejects a neo-pagan notion that tends to promote the cult of the body, to sacrifice everything for its sake, to idolize physical perfection and success at sports. By its selective preference of the strong over the weak, such a conception can lead to the perversion of human relationships.” Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2289.
