Mathletics (etymology: math + athletic) is any scenario where the actual act of doing mathematics is turned into a legitimate sport. In our case (as branded), mathletics is the relation of fitness metrics - namely walks - to their respective strings, thus making ludology an organic component of recreation. Mathletics may also be defined more primitively; for we can say that the ability to gamify any math problem-solution is a demonstration of being subjectively 'mathletic'.

Furthermore, the mathlete is someone who uses athletics to calculate walks from those events. More succinctly, the mathlete is a sport performer with priority to act out some particular ballet. In terms of so-called "mathleticism", its definition is of a person's (here, the "mathlete") potential to obtain a high score (translation: earn MONEY) in competitive mathletics.

"The existential test of a mathlete is their ability to maximize their earning potential." - Link Starbureiy


Notes (+): + From an historical standpoint, Link Starbureiy called it 'mathletics' because after reading the book "Hyperspace" by Michio Kaku, particularly the part where the author enticed readers to find a solution to string field theory, Starbureiy ended up later creating the EGP Keynote (based off of what he perceived to be a challenge from Kaku). Had he been in academia, this may have been a community effort, but since he worked in isolation (solo) at the time, he chose to treat it like a sport. Hence his recreational approach to mathematics.

+ Mathletics is classified under recreational mathematics.
