7 Sports You Should Give a Try This Summer
Ready for some action during the dog-days of summer? It’s a great way to keep up living that healthy lifestyle. There’s nothing better than trying something new too. If you keep doing the same old routine, how will you know what you’re missing?
Fortunately, there are 7 sports that were simply made for summer. See how many of them you can put on your bucket list!
1. Sand Volleyball
The difference between sand volleyball and volleyball on a regular court is that the court size is smaller in the sand. And that means you’ll likely be on your toes a whole lot more than the usual way. It’s a fun game to play in the sun so grab friends and get out there!
Prefer to keep things more low-key? Put on some rollerblades and make laps around the lake or park. You can do it solo or with friends and loved ones. Bonus: it is an excellent way to really work those larger muscle groups and burn calories!
Look for a league or gather with friends, family, and neighbors to play soccer. Even when there’s no big competition at stake, soccer can be great fun.
Tennis is a fantastic way to keep up with cardiovascular activity and spend time with a friend that’s willing to give it a try too. But if no one wants to hit the courts with you, a personal trainer can be just the partner you’re looking for.
If you’ve only ever watched baseball from the stands with a cold drink and a hot dog in your hand, you’ve got to experience life from the perspective of the diamond. Baseball gets you moving in so many ways, enacting all your muscle groups. Plus, once you hear the ball crack onto your bat and sail overhead, you’ll want to relive that moment over and over again.
Those that say golf is boring have likely never played a round before in their lives. Golf really hits muscles in the most unusual of ways, giving you quite the workout. And if you want to turn it into even more of one, forgo the golf cart and walk the course.
Perhaps the best way to get into sports this summer is by getting into the water. Swimming in and of itself is excellent exercise, though you can challenge yourself further with waterskiing, windsurfing, wakeboarding, surfing, paddle-boarding, and plenty more. Take a lesson and you’ll likely find the experience to be exhilarating!
Of course, the more active your are in sports, the more likely you are to sustain an injury. And if you’ve already had an injury from sports, an accident, or anything else, that shouldn’t stop you from trying something new. A physiotherapist can help you make sure you’re ready for these sports and activities. And the best part?
