In brief: Magnesium deficiency
Sometimes, it can be poor circulation (though less common), sometimes it depends on the activity, for example swimming often causes a foot cramp and this is because people don't tend to use the small muscles in the foot and all of a sudden they are getting overutilized and it causes a cramp.
