    Take Part in a Variety of Sports. Instead of just playing hockey or running marathons, why not opt for something different? Try to play a different sport every month. This will help your overall fitness and help you build new skills.


  • Drink plenty of water. Always keep a bottle of water nearby to hydrate yourself.
  • Enjoy it! You can't play a sport well if you don't enjoy it.
  • Always warm up before you play any sport. You're more prone to injuries if you don't and put your health at risk.
  • Eat a balanced, healthy diet. You can't get fit if you're always eating junk food!
  • Meet people who share your interest. Joining a club, chatting online, or even just going to the next big game can help you build new relationships with people who can encourage you along the way.
  • Get the family involved. Ask your family to join in, or to watch your next tournament. Support from those who love you really does make a difference.


  • Don't stop trying if someone says you can't do it, or you're not very good. You are just disappointing yourself.
  • Don't go overboard with exercise. An hour a day is all you need.
