Discussion on: What sport/physical activity would you recommend to someone who's not super sporty by nature?

I would say Crossfit and I know what you're thinking... "But it's such a high-intensity sport, how can someone with no background just jump in?"

All workouts are scaled, so you only do what you can. Can't do pull-ups? Switch to jumping pull-ups. Still struggle? We'll chuck some plates underneath you so you haven't got far to jump. Can't do push-ups? They'll let you go onto your knees or use a box for further assistance.

The social aspect is incredible, and everyone helps each other get through the workouts. It's a truly amazing sport which you should try at least once in your life.
