Sometimes it may happen that no matter what you try you find yourself not enjoying your chosen sport any longer. While some people may find this depressing it should really be looked at as an opportunity to expand your horizons. When we no long have any fun at what we are doing we will eventually quit doing it. Rather than quit being active and keeping fit altogether we should find a new activity to pursue.
Do not limit your choices and your chances for success to the usual ideas. You can look as far and wide as you want and if you find something that may seem “out there” for where you live who really cares as long as you are having fun and keeping fit. Some you can do alone while others require a team or at least a partner. Swimming, cycling, and running are obvious and very popular but may not be what you are looking for. Have you considered hiking, dance, or weightlifting? What about canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing or rappelling? Any of the martial arts, yoga, Pilates, crossfit, or a myriad of other group fitness classes can be great choices. Skateboarding, mountain boarding, or mountain biking may be good options if you are adventurous.

When you decide upon a new activity be smart about it and learn proper technique first. If you need an instructor or partner find one. We want to stay healthy and injury free so proper form, recognizing your limits, and recognizing possible hazards is always important.
There are a multitude of things to do so finding something you enjoy should be a simple matter of trial and error even if you have no idea of what you might like. We are never to old or out of shape to take on new challenges; we simply need to be smart and prepare properly for them.
