10 Summer Sports to Challenge Your Body Without Compromising Social Distancing Space
With summer here, it’s time to get active and enjoy the season before it becomes cold and blustery. The pandemic might have changed how we interact, but there are many sports you can still engage in that provide plenty of space for social distancing and minimize contact with others.
Plus, many can get you outdoors and out of the house which will do wonders for your mental health. Here are 10 summer sports that you should try that will keep you socially distanced all summer long!
Is there anything better than splashing around in the cool, refreshing water? Swimming keeps you active and is fun for all ages so dive right in!
Take to the outdoor tennis courts and enjoy a friendly match. It’s easy to stay apart though remember to sanitize your equipment and your hands often.
Get your bike out and head around a trail. We’re fortunate to have so much beautiful scenery nearby. Even if you meet with friends, it’s easy to stay socially distanced while riding your bike.
4. Frisbee Golf
Find a wide open space and set up a frisbee golf arena. All you need are some frisbees, indicator, and hand sanitizer to safely have fun with friends outdoors.
Go on a beach trip and try your hand at surfing. It’s challenging, but instructors can show you how to get up on the board even with the minimum 6-feet of distance between you.
Combine surfing with sailing and you have windsurfing. It might look easier than surfing but you have to learn how to work the sail which adds to the challenge. Once you get it though, you’ll feel exhilarated.
7. Rock Climbing
On the more extreme side of things, rock climbing can really test your strength of mind and body. There are lower peaks and bouldering options for beginners. You can also look for an indoor climbing wall, though outdoors will be best if you want to minimize any potential exposure to the virus.
Kayaking is great for upper body strength. It’s also an outdoor summer activity you can do alone or with a bunch of friends because it’s so easy to stay apart in the kayaks.
Take aim for something new with archery. You’ll find peace in launching your arrows toward the targets and make great memories doing it too.
As long as you avoid all those common indoor shared spaces, golf is a great way to stay 6 feet apart or more. You can get more exercise if you walk the green rather than use a golf cart too.
With all this activity, don’t forget to schedule an in-home massage whenever you need one. We’ll come to you before or after your summer exercises and help keep your muscles comfortable to prevent injury and strain.
