The gym(nasiom) was formerly a learning and training facility in ancient Greece. It was a place to socialize and engage in philosophical pursuits. The facility tied relation between athletics, education and health played a core role within social and spiritual life. Physical education was considered as important as cognitive learning. Public libraries were often nearby. Yet it was exclusively open only for young men over 18.

The terms training and coaching are generally used for processes that are supposed to alter a current state. They are systematically repeated activities with the aim to improve the physical, cognitive or emotional constitution - to gain strength, to feel more comfortable, to enhance reaction in a given situation - and basically change a state from A to B.

The emotional and neurally evoked willingness to act, in order to reach a desired object or goal can be described as motivation. Purposeful behavior is caused by needs. Needs are individual. Nevertheless, they cannot be read independently from collective, socially shaped conditions. The ability to achieve personal or predetermined goals can be understood as performance.
Prepare for what? Enhance for whom? Measure it how?
