Team sports: Why it’s a good idea

Lifestyle & Fitness • by Ryno Ellis • 27 August 2018
Taking part in team sports has many beneficial traits and should not be disregarded. People generally opt for exercising by themselves by either going to the gym, a fitness class or jogging and then miss out on some of the benefits of exercising in a team. In this blog, we’ll explore some of the benefits of training in a group or with friends and how it can benefit you.

Exercising is crucial to living a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Who knew that exercising with others has even more benefits. Here are some of the benefits of team sports:


For many, regularly exercising can sometimes be a bit of a challenge. However, studies have shown that if you’re planning to work out with others, you’ll be held accountable if you’re a no-show. That’s why those who plan to work out with others tend to stick to their fitness plan.


Being able to communicate effectively with others is key when playing in a team. Knowing when to speak up or express any concerns with your teammates can help you improve your intercommunication skills. This skill set can come in very handy when going about in your daily and professional life.

Stress relief

By being part of a team, you’ll be sharing your excitement (and even disappointments) which may help you forget about your daily stresses, thereby uplifting your spirits.

Boosts self-esteem

Having your teammates cheering you on can do wonders for your self-esteem.

Conflict resolution

Being part of a team sometimes means not agreeing on something. This is normal and learning to manoeuvre around these disagreements will help you learn how to deal with conflict which could help with conflict resolution in your day-to-day life.
