Stay fit : The right sport

There are dozens of sports, so you might not have found the one for you yet. Lots of people try soccer and baseball. But what if your best sport is going to be volleyball or gymnastics? You’ll have to try it and find out. Some people are naturally graceful. Others are strong. And still others have great aim. Different sports require different skills, so you’ll want to try different sports to find one that suits you. Some activities you might not think of as sports, such as karate or cheerleading, but they are great for staying active. If you don’t like being on a team that much, you might consider individual sports. An individual sport means a person does the sport on his or her own. You can do these sports competitively or just for the fun of doing them. Here’s a list of some individual sports: swimming, diving, running, ice skating, wrestling, gymnastics, golf, tennis, skateboarding, in-line skating, horse riding, biking, martial arts and bowling. Those who like adventure may try rafting, mountaineering, bungee jumping,

skydiving, hang gliding and winter games. If you are shy in taking up sports, here are just a few: raking leaves, mopping floors, dancing, walking the dog, cleaning house, watering the garden and washing the car. Limiting certain activities — like watching TV and playing computer games — can also keep you naturally more active. So, no, you don’t have to play a sport, but you might still find one you like. The most important thing is to be an active person.
