In brief: Over-exertion is bad

Marfan syndrome persons should avoid contact sports.
If symptoms are on the moderate to severe side, they can participate in non-contact, non-strenguous activities such as golf, bowling, walking, yoga, or tai-chi. If mild to moderate in severity, they can try non-contact, moderately strenguous activities such as biking or swimming. The national marfan foundation website is helpful.

In brief: Can Be

This depends on the specifics of your marfans (i.
e. Degree of heart disease, skeletal issues, eye issues) and how you define "limit". Many people with marfan can perform highly without specific limits while others have significant limitations if they have significant heart or other disease. Please discuss your specific issues with your physician(s).
