Besides Ultimate, can you recommend a new sport or physical activity that I might like?

Just this week I discovered Ultimate Disc (Frisbee). I'm very fascinated by it and plan on playing as often as I reasonably can. I was introduced to it right at the end of the local recreational league season. I can get into some pick up games and if I continue to enjoy it I'll join the league next season. However I'm also looking into finding another sport/physical activity to take up as well (to fill the gap). I've never been particularly active in sports (especially team) nor have I even really liked many sports from a spectator's standpoint. I think I want a high intensity, fast paced activity. One that takes place outdoors is a bonus. Something of a team sport is also bonus. But, living here in the Midwest an indoor activity certainly has its merits during the winter. I have decided that I need to get into better shape. I don't care for football, baseball or softball (from an active or spectator standpoint). I enjoy biking a lot. I enjoy running some but tend to find it boring after a while. Swimming is also something I enjoy. However swimming in my area seems to be expensive if you don't own a pool. I do enjoy watching soccer, rugby and X-games type sports. I am trying to get into shape and a highly aerobic activity seems to be a good idea to me. FYI, I live in the St. Louis, MO area. So, what can you fine people recommend?
