Not sure if I'm biased because I've done sport for a good part of my life, but sports definitely builds more than just your fitness or strength. I was part of a sports team for a good 10 years and the tenacity and perseverance it cultivates is something I feel you cannot gain through mere gymming. Sports builds character and played a major role in making me the person I am today.

I don't mean to say gymming doesn't build character - it does in some ways. I'm just an advocate for putting yourself in a bigger playing field for the goal of self-improvement and good camaraderie with friends and rivals alike.

I don't really enjoy going to the gym, because the environment feels kind of sterile, though it's definitely a great place to work out if you're overseas and unfamiliar with the environment.
Sports are fun because they help to build camaraderie, as well as keep you in shape, though I have absolutely no ball sense. The competitive nature of sports also helps in keeping you motivated.

I guess playing sports just sounds a lot more fun than going to the gym. At least for sports, you get to play with your friends and it just feels a lot less pressurising than going to the gym and being surrounded by buff gym nuts and toned bodies.

Definitely sports if you crave fun, excitement, friendly competition and lots of bonding. There's nothing like a good game with friends to make the hours fly by! Many of my closest friends are those I met through sports clubs. But gym is good if you just want to unwind after a long day, go hard and rest easy. It's a little lonely though.

Playing sports is the most fun way to insert cardio into your routine, but going to the gym is essential if you want to build some muskles. If I had to choose between running around a track or doing weights at the gym though, then weights any day. I have zero motivation to run unless it's when I'm chasing a ball or a disc.

Sports. Other than all the reasons listed above, I feel that playing sports as part of a healthy lifestyle is a lot less dreadful than gymming. Sports is dynamic, while gymming can feel routine and boring at times. When it's a fast-paced sport, you barely have time to feel tired! I love it!
