The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) praised health-promoting physical activities. In an authentic hadith, which is narrated in At-Tabarani, the Prophet (peace be upon him) said, “Any action which is void of the remembrance of Allah is either a distraction or heedlessness except for four actions: Walking from target to target, i.e. during archery practice; training a horse; playing with one’s family; and learning to swim.” Most of what the Prophet (peace be upon him) mentioned in this hadith are physical activities that promote one’s physical strength and overall health.
