What sports/activities do you do for fun?

Lets hear it, what do you like to do besides typical cardio at the gym and weight training? what kind of athletic hobby do you do to stay active and have fun? Besides my workouts, I'm not very active and I'm looking for fun things to do to get out and burn a few calories, increase my abilities, and just have fun. Once it warms up a little I'll be hitting the mountain bike trails, but I'm looking to do other stuff too. I need ideas people! lol

Rollerblading, running three times a week.

I'll be looking into Brazilian Jiu Jitsu next week, but it might be too expensive That is a damn good workout though.

I like rock climbing, hiking, backpacking, mountain climbing, and this weekend I'm going to start mountain bike riding.

You'd be amazed at how many calories you burn just walking with a 65lb backpack and 6lb boots when it's 20 degrees out.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

I've thought a lot about climbing and hiking/backpacking. Admittedly I haven't really looked into it enough to know, but it seems like you have to spend a whole weekend (or more) doing that stuff as opposed to an afternoon. I'll have to investigate...

You can spend just an afternoon hiking 7-10 miles with a pack on. That'll give you a really good workout and you get to be out in nature. I do this while training for mountaineering.

I'll tell you one activity that I'm NOT going to do ever again:

Bikram Yoga.

For those that don't know, it's yoga - in a 120deg room. Upside is that there are lots of hot chicks tying themselves into knots wearing next to nothing. Downside is that you're so focused on not passing out or throwing up from the heat that you can't enjoy it.

I give sweatshop yoga two thumbs down.

I'd like to camp more and get out but getting a weekend away is tough, since thats when I typically work. My dad has a kayak and I'm thinkin about putting it to use a couple days a week over the summer. I figure biking will put emphasis on lower body, kayak would fit the bill for upper body.

Lifting weights and vball. I do lay off of the vball when some fooktard who has a chronic itching to keep landing with his foot over the line happens to do it one too many times so that I sprain the shit out of my ankle (2nd time) due to his utter incompetence to have any f*cking clue as to how to jump and actually stay on one side of the motherf*cking net!!!

Oh and I also bowl on Tuesdays.

You know what I've always wanted to go somewhere for a weekend and back pack... never been! Never been camping or anything so..

But hmmm... i like to rollerblade, walk the dogs during the summer, play some softball, i like to explore the city when i can... work out when i am up for it in the basement.. nothing fancy... Bowling with the usual crowd.
But really am up for pretty much anything if it's fun and exciting

Bikes can be replaced...people can't...ride safe!!

I wonder who does that. This used to be a problem for me with one friend while playing basketball. He always seems to position his foot right underneath you so your foot does a reverse L on the ground. I've learned since then to just fall down to the ground the second I feel my foot turning in, similar to taking a fall in martial arts, rather the body take the force than one week part like my ankle. As for Vball, in college there was always a guy who flew completely into the net to spike the ball, he hit me smack in the rabbit tooth with his elbow, talk about pain. I'm amazed I didn't loose my tooth.

I want to do more fishing this year and try and get out to the range with my dad more often. I would try and go camping more but I don't get weekends off. So I think the main goal for this year will be to go riding more often since I got her a bike and she can tag along instead of riding two up.
