This weekend the 2010 Football World Cup is to kick off in South Africa. There is a frenzy of excitement across the world in South Africa. It seems more of a nationalist expression instead of the activity of a sport.
There are millions of visitors from around the world in various cities in South Africa where the place of the World Cup will take place. Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town, Pretoria, Port Elizabeth, Bloemfontein, Polokwane, Rustenburg, and Nelspruit have millions of visitors solely to football. You can watch world cup soccer matches anywhere online.

Football is the most popular sport in the world. It is known as football in many countries (except, of course, the United States). I'm not a devoted football fan, but I recognize the value of football as an exercise.
Football is a great exercise. Similar to basketball, you can do a lot of kicking exercises yourself. Personally, I think basketball is the best sport you can use to get a workout.
Football is another sport you can get a workout. If you look at the players for the World Cup, you will not find a single player of fat. Football has probably the most race than any other sport.
The race is not for speed (as most people do workouts cardiovascular). Instead, there are a lot of stops and go with varying degrees of acceleration in the race. This is similar to a quality interval training program for your body. You can even try to put cones around your backyard.
