What kind of sports do you do?

I've decided that I NEED to do SOMETHING. I can't decide on what though I'm not really into things like basketball - since I'm generally not very coordinated with balls. I did play volleyball for a while though.
I like things like ground gymnastics or tae bo - but I'd like to do something new - I also need something I'll actually stick to (unlike jogging )
What sports do you play?

I used to play softball competitively, but haven't since I graduated high school. I'm thinking about trying out for a slow-pitch team or get my church to start their own slow-pitch league. It would take some major adjustments for me because I am used to fast-pitch, but it'd still be fun!

Other then that, I don't really do much sports competitively. I do play a lot of sports though... kickball, volleyball, tennis, swimming, frisbee golf, etc. Some I'm pretty good at (i.e. kickball and swimming) and some I'm terrible at (i.e. tennis and frisbee golf), but it is always a blast!

I love playing sports! Thinking about going to the rec center and playing some softball tomorrow, I miss it so much.

Have you tried fencing? There are 3 different weapons - foil, epee and sabre. I primarily fence sabre but don't mind playing with the epee folks. I stay away from foil since I really suck at it.

Our club has hobby fencers and competitive fencers, it just depends on how much the person wants to commit to the sport. Age doesn't matter either; there's an older lady in the club, she started with her grandson when he was about 11 (she was 64). She's 85 now and still fences; she competes in the Masters (senior) division and complains about having to fence the youngsters (75 and under). She's a pistol...

I use to play soccer (junior varsity and varsity), fast pitch softball, and did a little bit of hip hop dancing classes.

I LOVE to run and dance. So I knew what I wanted to do when it came to sports lol.

I wish I could of gone on to do competition dancing but soccer was more important to me.

I play basketball, ultimate frisbee and take karate (at my dojo, you only have to wear "fugly white robes" (aka gi) until you reach your yellow belt, which is your second level belt. After that you get a red gi and then a black gi).

I find ultimate and karate to be the most physically demanding. With ultimate you're pretty much running for your entire shift, and depending on how many subs/lines you have, that can end up being the entire game! With karate though, you're engaging all your muscle groups and get a great full body work out. The one thing I struggled with at karate was pushing myself to my limit. I often just gave up when I felt tired and would go half assed and not get much out of it. I didn't have teammates that relied on me, so I didn't care. Then I realized I needed to do it for myself, and I vastly improved in mind, body and spirit.
