I go to Adam4Adam all the time and see these profiles where the guy says he is a "jock". So does this mean he runs marathons all the time or he just wishes he was a jock? What activities qualify one as being a "jock"? Like does going to the gym 7 days a week for an hour qualify as being a jock even though half of that time you are in the steam room getting blown?
What does "jock" in a profile mean?

When someone on a gay site says jock they often mean it differently than the mainstream widespread understanding. So many gay guys claim to be jock, yet they can't tell you which teams are in the NBA Conference finals, or, they haven't shot hoots in years or thrown a football. A lot of gay guys have a very unusual definition of jock.

There is a lot of truth to that. A lot of gay guys mean the word jock just in the sense that they are athletic and like to work out/be active on a regular basis. Not that complicated really.

I'm glad you've got a fit, buff, rockin' bod. Really I am.
But there's nothing more boring than hearing about committed you are to your workout. And the details of your workout. And your diet. I don't ever need to hear about how hard you work to look this good.
Imagine a beautiful straight girl who thought it was delightful to regale her dates with details of her makeup, her fashion choices, her change in hairstyle, etc. She'd bore men beyond endurance, no matter how hot she was.
Look great. Enjoy the attention. And shut the fuck up.

Jock fulfills the sexual fantasy. They cater to it. And what it in return.
However, the ones that go around and say they want someone "educated" I feel is to avoid the label of shallow.
Usually, the descriptor "educated" means a lot of things to a lot of people. Just because you have a "degree" in something, it doesn't mean you are highly enlightened or brilliant, and want someone else to be the same. You can get a BA in finger painting of you wanted at the college level or BS in exercise. This is a paid educational system, where you buy a degree. Mostly.

For gay men, jocks are almost always muscular with low body fat and attractive. A jock can be of any age but are generally thought to be somewhat younger because their athletic abilities. Jocks are usually linked to actively playing sports. Years ago, the term "Jock" used to have a negative connotation in the straight world. For gays, to be called a jock is a compliment. An example of a jock body type would be David Beckham, the English born football (aka soccer) player.

A lot of gay guys have special definitions of jock that do not conform to the mainstream definition, and therefore, tend to disappoint people on personals sites who meet them with the mainstream definition of jock. In mainstream society, a jock usually is good at one of the big popular team sports such as football, hockey, basketball, baseball, and soccer. Lacrosse players can also be considered jocks because they play an aggressive team sport. Correspondingly, people expect jocks to be very masculine in the mainstream sense, very Alpha Male. There are also other indicators of Jock status, such as language (bro, dude, brah), clothing (Nike, Under Armour, Adidas, beanie hats, baseball caps), and music (hip hop and rock).
