What are the best solo sports of all time? Sometimes you have to make it on your own in this world, and individual sports are perfect for those times when it's just you against the world. While it is rewarding to be part of a great team, relying on nobody other than yourself can be just as powerful. Discipline, endurance, and perseverance are some of the greatest qualities people can learn from individual sports, whether it be from the greatest tennis players of all time or the best golfers of all time. So, which solo sports are the best? Which individual sports do you love to play?

When it comes to the top solo sports, Running has to be near the top of the list as the OG exercise. Swimming and Bicycling are more great sports for one person, as they burn a high amount of calories. In recent years, Climbing became en vogue as one of the most popular solo sports, although it doesn't hurt to have a belayer.
