In brief: Go for it

People are able to live full, active lives with colostomies in place these days.
You always want to check with your doctor but folks play all sorts of recreational sports with colostomies. You'll get more comfortable with it as you get used to it.

In brief: Pretty much normally

You should be able to exercise normally with a colostomy, with the possible exception that you will probably want to avoid full contact sports.
