Everyone should take up a sport because that is the best way to stay in shape and to stay healthy. However, it is not always easy to find the best sport for yourself, and sometimes the sports we love are not the sports for which we were cut out. So, in order to take up a sport in which you will be good and which will make you feel great, you will need to figure out what sport is the best for you.


First of all, think of all the sports in which you are great, or which you like. You’ve probably played football or basketball at least once in your life, and by now you should know it you are good at these sports or not. Also, you ought to know by now if these “mainstream” sports make you feel good about yourself while you’re playing them, or if they have the complete opposite effect on you. It that is the case, you’ll know that you need to find some new sport in which you can enjoy.


In order for you to know which sport you should choose, you could go ahead and ask some of your friend what they think about which sport would be perfect for you. If you don’t like their answer, or if they’re completely wrong, you will have to make a decision all by yourself.
First of all, write down all the things you’re good at and all the athletic activities you like doing. It doesn’t matter how insignificant they might be, just write them all down. This will later help you decide what sport you should choose, but for now, just keep them on your paper.

The next thing you need to do is to seek out some sports that require you to do most of the stuff you’ve listed on your piece of paper. Of course, you will not find a sport that consists only of things in which you are great, but you should be able to find a sport that has the best fit to you. Some of the sports you find may require you to learn some other things, and if that seems interesting to you, than those are the right sports for you.


And at the end, you will need to decide on one of the couple of sports you’ve found that fit you the most. Try to make your decision based of the fact which sport do you like more, where is the nearest training area for that sport, and if you can afford that sport. Once you’ve made your decision, you’ll know that that is the perfect sport for you. There are hundreds of sports out there, and for some of them you probably haven’t even heard of. But, that doesn’t mean that they are not interesting and great, and you should check them out by all means. No matter how goofy some sport looks to others – if you like playing it, than that is the best sport for you!
