We all play favorites when it comes to sports and it looks like soccer is FitSugar's readers' favorite sport to play. This is especially cool since a recent study found that soccer beats running in weight loss as well as fun. There's a great camaraderie that develops in team sports and all volleyball fans were a little offended that volleyball was not a choice. Sorry for the omission, but I must say I am looking forward to watching women's beach volleyball at the upcoming Olympics.
On the other end of the workout spectrum, we all have a favorite cardio machine, and those machines sometimes seem like sporting events. Well, the votes are in and it looks like FitSugar readers are in love with the elliptical; it is so kind on the knees and going backwards ensures that you are targeting all parts of your legs. The trusty treadmill came in second place. The machine is a great way to run indoors and in a controlled environment.
Whether you get your heart rate up chasing a ball or climbing a StepMill, the important thing is that you're exercising!
