It’s easy to track their workout and there are trainers helping them with exercises.

In my opinion, different gender have different interest. Women tend to take part in some gentle physical activities like doing yoga.

It takes guts to join risky sports so it’s suitable for men as they have passion to overcome natural barriers.
