If you think kicks are just for kids, consider this: the World Adult Kickball Association (WAKA) now boasts over 4,000 teams in nearly 40 states nationwide. Founded in 1998, WAKA adult kickball attracts people who like to have fun and socialize while exercising – and you may even meet someone special. At least one couple got married on home plate after meeting at a game.
In addition, the game lends itself to a substantial aerobic workout. Short bursts of all-out effort burn calories -- lots of calories. Kickball's base-running and sprinting burns about 400 calories per 50-minute game. Combine that with a healthy diet and weight training and watch the pounds drop off.

If kickball can't lure you out of the hammock, how about a game of Frisbee? Let's face it, running around on a beach tossing a disc around is a lot more fun than sharing an exercise bench with some sweaty guy at the gym. In addition, all that running and jumping burns 200 to 300 calories an hour.
If you seek a challenge beyond the basics, Ultimate Frisbee may be the ticket. This non-contact team sport takes the game to the nth level. Described as a combination of the best features of soccer, basketball and football, the game requires speed, stamina and agility. Yet the simplicity of the game makes it easy for newbies to learn.
