Yes I agree, but I think you overestimate the level of strength required to participate in most sports, activities, and various fitness regimens.
Even sports like boxing where one would intuitively think that a great amount of strength would be desired. I think you'd be surprised at how many fighters and trainers even at the professional level are stuck in the stone age when it comes to concepts of strength and fitness.
Not saying what they are doing is optimal, but just illustrating that one can be successful in a sport without focusing on strength or even having great knowledge about it.
