Primitive societies lived from hunting and forest. Everyday they entered the forest to gather food and hunting. These activities required them to move here and there. They didn’t know the concept of sports or exercise. Their sport or exercise was so simple, through working everyday. At that mostly they were only playing and competing as a very simple kind of sport.
When human entered the era of agriculture, their daily activities turned into farming, with raising livestock. Everyday they take care of their gardens, fields and their farms, which is grazing. These activities have led them to sports and exercises. That means everyday they will certainly exercise and do “sports” through farming and raising livestock.

In this period human exercise was reduced drastically. hence, We began to see how important exercises were to ourlives. We began to take special time, outside working hours in order to do exercises.
