What do we call someone who is into different sports including biking, mountaineering, tracking, and other similar sports?

  • The word "freak" is often used informally to mean someone who is an enthusiast about something, and is listed in dictionaries in this way. You could call them a sports freak. – Zebrafish Oct 31 '18 at 21:39

I would call them sporty:

sporty

ADJECTIVE

informal 

1 Fond of or good at sport.

However, "sporty" isn't only applied to people but to objects as well, such as cars and clothes.

Calling them an athlete is suitable enough in most cases, if they play competitively. Some triathlons include those sports so triathlete could be another more specific way to describe them. Again, these suggestions are leaning more towards actively competing versus something like a hobby.
