Start any morning off right with Tai Chi. In Shanghai, you can find eager Tai Chi practitioners on the Bund or in most major parks.

For auto sports fans, why not check out the Chinese Grand Prix or the Shanghai International Circuit. Both offer the chance to watch high-speeds fun and action up close, and while Shanghai may not often afford the opportunity to drive fast, it is a fan of speed.
Have you ever fired an AK-47? Why not give it a shot at the Modern Military Sports Club, where you can play commando with professionals on hand to keep everyone safe.

Finally, all manner of amateur sports can be viewed or participated in at Dongping Park. Most parks in Shanghai, for that matter, offer open spaces to run, skip and jump.
