"尽管" means more like "even if". "虽然" means "although".

Ironically, your sentence has major mistakes elsewhere:

(Yours) 我很多喜欢运动。{尽管/虽然}我每天都有很多上课,但是下午四点以后去体育馆跑步,游泳。连我朋友玛丽也喜欢跟老师打太极拳。

"很多" is an adjective, so it cannot modify verbs like "喜欢" or "上课".

(Fixed) 我真喜欢运动。{尽管/虽然}我每天都有很多课,但是下午四点后还会去体育馆跑步,游泳。我的朋友玛丽也喜欢跟老师练太极拳。

I do not agree with jack chiou that the difference between "尽管" and "虽然" is strength of emotion. The difference is almost precisely the difference between "even if" and "although".

For example, "虽然" / "although" cannot be used with a counter-factual condition (at least formally).

(Right) 尽管我们有翅膀,还是飞不到太阳。 = Even if we have wings, we still cannot fly to the sun.

(Wrong) 虽然我们有翅膀,但是飞不到太阳。 = Although we have wings, we cannot fly to the sun.

Grammatically ,尽管 and 虽然 two words are no essential difference.

Both 尽管 and 虽然 are right to place in XX.

我真的很喜欢运动。 XX我每天都有很多的课,但四点以后,我還是會在体育馆跑步和游泳。 我的朋友玛丽亚甚至喜欢跟大师练习太极拳。

天气越热,我感觉更好。 但是,XX这几天天气很热,我还是觉得自己得了流感,而且头部越来越痛。

The emotion of 尽管 is stronger than 虽然.So it is often to see us use 虽然.
