    Similar previous question english.stackexchange.com/questions/124665/… Gymaholic was suggested in that discussion, so perhaps 'fitness-holic' works here. Not very snappy though. – Spagirl May 13 '16 at 11:24

If you know what type of fitness it is use that word and -er. For example:

  • runner (running enthusiast)
  • hiker (hiking enthusiast)
  • swimmer (swimming enthusiast)
