Sport seems to be a healthy social outlet until you consider it a little deeper: rivalry, competition, taking sides and animosity are frequent factors in sport.
People exert themselves in order to accomplish a goal and frequently injure their bodies in the process.
Money, medals and fame motivate sports people to push harder and harder, in order to prove something.

Pain is the sensation our body uses to influence our judgement.
Pain tells us that something is not right - this is the most important aspect of pain.
Resisting pain, such as masking it with painkillers, can make things worse.

The earliest symptoms of pain should be heeded.

(Philip Maffetone)

People often punish their bodies on the road to fitness.
The slogan 'no pain, no gain' is often used in conjunction with sport. Being healthy sounds like an ordeal.
