The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby, "absolutely in training"

Could you please tell me the literal and symbolic meaning of "absolutely" in the following sentence of the first chapter ofThe Great Gatsby?

“No, thanks,” said Miss Baker to the four cocktails just in from the pantry, “I'm absolutely in training.”

Thank you.
