Exercising doesn’t have to mean struggling in the gym until you see results. There are many ways to get in shape without feeling like forced labour.
Because exercise should also be fun.
Here are 7 ways that can help you get in good physical shape:
One of the best total body exercises that will help you lose fat, build muscle and improve your focus. Be sure to see an experienced, state-licensed professional and learn how to exercise properly.
Regardless of your skill level, from drogba to the last kid on the soccer field, soccer is a great way to get in shape and improve your overall fitness.
Would you like to get around with just a map, a compass and your gut feeling? Something like a huge treasure hunt where you pass a few checkpoints in a very short time to train your body and mind? Then orientation is just right for you. It’s a sport popular in northern Europe that has only recently gained fanatical fans in Greece. Orienteering can also be combined with mountain biking.
A great way to “build up” your upper body and get a versatile workout. It can even be done indoors at your own pace.
A fast, fun sport that delivers a real adrenaline rush. Unlike other team games, you are always part of the action. Even though it’s not a traditional sport, you could turn out to be a real sniper.
Basketball is an easy way to train outside. You can play alone or in a team. Size is an advantage, of course, but it’s not essential when playing in an Alana or in an open gym with friends.
7. Cycling and mountain biking
Cycling is a great exercise. It burns a lot of calories and builds very strong legs. Hard work on the road and even harder on the hills is balanced beyond the health benefits by the exhilarating descents that mountain biking offers (as well as uphill city streets when it’s time to descend…). ideal for an adrenaline rush.
