I like 4 season weather and ain't active. Or well, I play football, bike everywhere and like walking, so I'm in a better physical condition than the average man, but it's no problem for me to sit a weekend inside four walls. I haven't ever worked in a place that requires physical excercise.

I don't like nature, hiking, camping, hunting or such things, but despite being a city person, I know how to put up a tent, campfire and how to fish.

If it's -5 to 30C the weather has no effect on my plans. If it's hot, so be it, if it rains, let it, if it's cold, I just have to be more careful when biking.

I'm kind of with you here. I like swimming but LOVE driving the jet ski at the lake. It's one of the few reasons I like living in a climate with hot summers, but I still need to have winters.

That sounds kinda active, depending on how often. Did the OP mean active or occasional recreation or constant work?

Enjoying moderate to vigorous exercise on a regular basis. And not liking sitting down very much.

Oh, I enjoy playing basketball too. I've always preferred basketball over foot-bore-ll.

Biking almost every day, the other maybe once a week both. But I don't hit the gym, go jogging, or just stroll around without aim just because I "have" to move.

Football might be vigorous, biking and walking not. I like to sit.

So not that active on Kaleetan's criteria.

I'm a heat lover, and a fall somewhere between active and inactive, if that even makes any sense.

My work involves me standing and moving around for 6-8hrs. I split wood. Landscape. Household maintenance. Veggie Garden digging/planting. I Jog (not in summer), build things, walk dog, find the farthest parking spot when shopping. I HATE to be inactive. I actually feel like crap when I am.

And that's why I get sick and feel miserable in the summer. Because I live like a hermit inside more, inactive. Bring on the cold!
That's how I am in the winter, and it's one reason why I hate it, I don't like being inside for extended periods of time. I'm way more comfortable (and physically active) in the warmer months. I don't get how people can go jogging in 20-40 degree temperatures, in shorts/t-shirts. In High School we were usually outside for gym during the winter, and despite being physically activity while being bundled up, I'd still be very uncomfortable.

Sprinting indoors for warmth is my favorite outdoor activity in the winter months lol.

Basketball is quite fun. And badminton is really cool.

I had a badminton set when I was a little kid, and I would play it in the back garden with my mother.

I enjoy tennis too, but I play less of it nowadays. There are tennis courts very close to here, so I should take up it again. It's a fun sport.
