Didn’t play sports as a kid, what sport can you take up later in life and still be decent

How much expendable income do you have, what's your risk tolerance, how much time do you have, are you afraid of heights, how athletic are you.

Answer these and you'll narrow it down.

Just turned 21, played soccer in High school, just started juijtsu best decision in my life, beginners in all ages. this one higher belt i train with regularly is 65 and could kill me in a split second he started when he was 55 ish, big city = more options of gyms try some out

I second BJJ if you are into competitive shit. I started about 6 months ago and I'm addicted to the mats. If you want something more calm or non-competitive hiking, mountain biking, trail running, etc. is also stuff I considered.

I've been enjoying volleyball

Not OP
But high expendable income, high risk tolerance, inconsistent free time (usually low, occasionally high), afraid of heights but very athletic. Bonus points if the sport gives me an excuse to travel

I'd suggest bouldering. I got into in my early 30s and I love it. I wish I'd started sooner.

Here's some reasons;

1. Low barrier for entry: bouldering gyms start at a low level accessible to everyone

2. It's pretty ubiquitous these days: I've yet to go to a city that doesn't have some kind of bouldering gym

3. Very little specialised equipment required. (Just some shoes and a chalk bag, both of which can be rented from a gym)

5. It's super fun: Combines video game like problem solving with a nice physical challenge

6. Lots of sitting: Bouldering is a pretty lazy sport. A minute or so of explosive power followed by lots of sitting and thinking

7. The community is great: everyone I've met doing this has been helpful, non toxic and non-judgemental.
