List of Top Fitness Documentaries Broken Down by Sport

If you are new to watching documentaries about fitness, feel free to follow my advice and work your way down these lists from top to bottom. My favorite movie by topic is listed as number one and then my least favorite is at the bottom (although that does not necessarily mean it is not a good movie).  Links on each movie title will take you to a place you can watch or order it.
