Exercise and sport are not the same thing. Exercise is designed to improve our physiology (not to degrade it). Exercise is a means to an end. Sport, on the other hand is not designed to improve our physiology. Sport is an end in itself.
Over the last 20 years, more and more people are engaged in sports in the name of exercise; a short list of these sports includes marathon running, triathlons, basketball, CrossFit, dancing, and gymnastics.
By all means, engage in sports because you enjoy them as recreation, but don’t do them as a substitute for exercise. In fact, continuing to perform safe, productive, resistance exercise is a great way to protect against the risk of injury inherent in so many sports.
