neniu civitano rajtas esti amatoro en la fizika trejnado ... kia malhonoro estas homo por maljuniĝi sen vidi neniam la belecon kaj forton de kiu lia korpo kapablas.

ningún ciudadano tiene derecho a ser un aficionado en materia de entrenamiento físico ... qué desgracia es para un hombre envejecer sin ver la belleza y la fuerza de las que es capaz su cuerpo.

ingen borgere har rett til å være amatør når det gjelder fysisk trening ... for en skam det er for en mann å bli gammel uten å se skjønnheten og styrken som kroppen hans er i stand til å.

ни один гражданин не имеет права быть любителем в вопросах физической подготовки ... что за позор для человека состариться, даже не увидев красоты и силы, на которые способен его тело.

没有任何公民有权在体育锻炼方面成为业余爱好者……一个人长大而没有看到自己身体所能拥有的美丽和力量是多么可耻的事情。
