To optimize something means to get as much advantage or benefit from it as you can, or to improve something so that it runs more smoothly and efficiently. So, for example you could talk about optimizing your health by drinking juice only, or cutting out sugar, or eating less carbohydrates and so on. There are so many different systems and fads out there to “help” you optimize your health or your weight loss.

Or, you might optimize your exercise routine, by running outdoors rather than on a treadmill, so that you can get the benefit from wind and weather, and the natural ups and downs of the road, rather than running in air-conditioning on a flat surface.
