The “other specified sports and athletics” category includes boxing, wrestling, and martial arts. The “other muscle strengthening exercises” category includes exercise machines, free weights, and Pilates. The “other cardiorespiratory exercise” category includes calisthenics, aerobics, and circuit training.
