I was just wondering what kind of different sports some you guys/gals play or any recommendations on something new to try. I am looking for something that involves a couple of hours a week without a lot of training for an event such as triathlons. Growing up I played football, basketball, baseball, wrestling, aikido. In colleged I boxed. I've played golf my whole life, cycled for a while. I took tennis lessons (liked them).

Just seeing what else is out there that people enjoy.

we recently started playing ultimate for PT on sports days. it's kind of fun, none of us know what we're doing and since it's all army guys, there has to be 2-3 people that yell and scream about messing up, etc. are there any sites you recommend for more information about ultimate? one thing i noticed is that i am completely exhausted whenever we play it. i'd like to learn how to actually play and join a club if possible.

I would recommend rugby.

Lots of fun, plus a great social environment. Most clubs practice Tueaday and Thursday nights, games on Saturday afternoon.

Rugby - its the best game you will ever experience. It will combine all the skills of other sports and CF is ideal for staying in shape for the sport. Most people are intimidated by the game but like most things its from a lack of knowledge. I would only sugggest that you look for a division II or division III club. They are generally most accepting of new players. Do a google search or go to USA rugby to identify teams in your area. I have been retired from the game two weeks and I am already trying to figure out how to get back into it. Its a fever that gets in your blood.

Yes Mom I am still playing rugby!

I'm partial to gymnastics :-).. although it is hard to find adult classes anywhere. If you can though it will be really rewarding, but even if you can't you can still practice some of the techniques without formal training.

Ultimate is good one for all types of people. Very Social. It will work on coordination and accuracy (The flick is one of the hardest elementary skills to learn in sport). This site will help you find a pic-up game. http://www.ultimap.org/.

Hockey is a very rewarding sport that desrves more consideration. It will really put those legs-by-crossfit to work. Equipment costs are high though.

i'd love to gymnastics if there was a good program in san diego...the only one i found was at the YMCA in san diego, and although the facilities were nice, the staff was too pre-occupied teaching back handsprings to cheerleaders
