So I'm back to fitness and I think It’s never too late to start getting fit and healthy, so if you’re thinking about it, you should just do it! Humans were supposed to be fit and active, not sit around all day doing nothing. Many people sniffle at exercise and say it’s boring and too hard, but those people are doing it wrong. Probably slogging away for hours on the treadmill! The best way to get fit and healthy is to do it the fun way. Here are some super fun ways to get fit and healthy:
Swimming can be a really fun way to get fit and healthy. If you can’t swim that much yet, focus on just getting your form right. Many people think they aren’t good swimmers because their form is a little off and they get tired easily. If you perfect your form, you’ll be able to swim much better. You should find it quite therapeutic! There are aqua aerobics and things you can do too, which are nice and low impact if you have bad joints.
Pole dancing isn’t the seedy sport that people make it out to be. It’s so popular lately, because it helps to teach balance, strength, and a variety of complex movements. You will be able to hold poses you never thought possible as you progress.
Climbing things is a great way to get fit, but you don’t need to climb up a real rock face to do it. Rock climbing can be done indoors these days, which is great when the weather is bad or you’re a beginner. You’ll be surprised at how hard it is!
When you’re dancing, do you even know you’re working out? Dancing is really high energy and loads of fun, so it’s great for replacing a boring cardio routine. You could do Zumba, belly dancing, or any other kind that takes your fancy. There will be classes for all ages.
Trampolining can burn a ton of calories, and you’re having so much fun you don’t even realise you’ve worked out until afterwards. By heading to a trampoline park you could get fit and have a wonderful time while you’re at it!
Never quite been able to grasp a handstand or a cartwheel? Go to an adult gymnastics class! You’ll be able to learn all the moves you weren’t able to do as a child and feel proud of yourself. You’ll get much stronger too!
There are so many amazing women football teams. Most towns have more than one. So why not get in touch with your local team and see if they are open to you trying out or joining them for some training. This could be a good way for you to find a new team sport and friends.
A Sport’s Club
If none of this appeals to you, there’s bound to be a sport’s club out there that does. There’s dodgeball, netball, and so many more clubs you could join. It’s never too late to get into a sport!
Don’t be afraid to try something new, especially when you’re benefiting your health like this! Drag a friend along with you the first time if it makes you feel better. Bear in mind going alone could mean you make all kinds of new friends as well as get fit!
