If you know what those terms mean, you probably know something about the most popular sport in the world!
It’s … football! Nope, not football like American football. Soccer!
All around the world, “soccer” is called “football.” And not only is soccer extremely popular, but it’s also a great way to get (and stay) physically fit.
Your legs contain a lot of big muscles. Using them to run around, pass, shoot, and dribble the soccer ball builds muscle, trims fat, and burns tons of calories. Did you know the average soccer player runs about seven miles in a single game? The more you run around, the longer and faster you’ll be able to run in the future. Soccer is a great sport to start with to build yourself up for future athletic adventures.
