what makes someone "athletic"?

I went to a new (to me) physical therapist for yet another injury (I'm always doing this - hurting myself during a workout and then getting sent to physical therapy). I described the problems and got some exercises, and also she said not to worry about getting into better shape (always my goal) because "you're fit, you're athletic, you'll be back to it soon." I thought, I'M FIT AND ATHLETIC? WTF? But a guy I work out with at the gym said I lift with really good form and I look like I can eat anything I want (not true), so maybe the physical therapist is onto something...

I don't think of myself as an athlete, though. What makes someone an athlete? Do you have to be in fantastic shape and/or compete?
