In fact, it is rare to be one of the “pure breeds”. Being purely ectomorphic and short will put you at a great advantage to do professional horse racing as a jockey while being a pure endomorph might set you up for sumo wrestling. The negative stigma of body types is only there if you let it. There are many advantages pure breeds have over individuals compromised as a combination.
For instance the diagram below shows a pure ectomorph on the left leading up to a pure mesomorph on the right. The combinations exist in between the two body types.

Hopefully this quick intro into the three different body types will help you succeed in your fitness goals! Ectomorphs, mesomorphs, and endomorphs must follow a very different regimen to see success.
