What is the definition of agility?

Answer

Agility means moving quickly with accuracy. It denotes physical fitness and gracefulness of movement at high speeds. Agility is an essential part of fitness regiments, mental exercises and skills that require a high amount of dexterity under pressure.

An agile individual is one with fleetness of mind or body that is coupled with an ease of motion through challenges associated with these qualities. Agility is gained through practice and repetition of certain skills. There are people with agile talents, things they are born with and know how to do inherently without much training. Regardless of a person's baseline of agility, it is common to train an ability until it gains the proper level of agility to suit the needs of the individual.

Agility is used in sporting events. Certain classes of movement and sporting activities are referred to as agility challenges, measuring the speed and nimbleness of a person clearing obstacles and overcoming problems either in the setting of a course layout or in a series of individual trials. Mental agility is tested in much the same way in academia and in contests of wit and logic. The ability to make rapid assessments and act in a rapid and efficient manner is the ultimate sign of agility.
