Workouts With a Twist
MAKE EXERCISE FUNTHIS SUMMER
INDOOR BOULDERING Bouldering is a form of rock climbing using a boulder rather than the side of a cliff. You can bring the activity indoors, where artificial climbing walls and safety mats help climbers ease into the sport. This pastime works your arm muscles and core, but it also challenges your mind. There’s a lot of problem- solving as you figure out the best way to navigate the wall. Exercise doesn’t have to be a chore. There are plenty of great ways to work up a sweat and still make great memories this summer. You just have to be willing to try something new.
Summer is a time for fun! The days are longer, so why waste the extra sunlight trapped on a treadmill? There are plenty of great opportunities to exercise without feeling bored out of your mind. Consider one of these fun activities you may have never tried before. STAND-UP PADDLEBOARDING Stand-up paddleboarding (SUP) is the fastest growing water sport in the world, and it’s pretty simple. You stand on a paddleboard — like a surfboard, but wider and more buoyant — and use a long paddle to glide across the water. It’s the simplicity that makes SUP fun. You can battle fierce river rapids and waves on the ocean, or enjoy a more relaxing experience paddling across wide lakes and lazy rivers. Whatever your skill level, you’re building core strength, improving your balance, and getting some fresh air. RACQUETBALL In order to play racquetball, you need to have access to a racquetball court. If you can find a court near you, this game is certainly worth trying. It’s the intense cousin of tennis. Instead of hitting the ball back and forth over a net, racquetball players take turns hitting the ball against a wall. This creates momentum, and the ball moves much faster, so there’s a lot of jumping and lunging across the court as players try to reach the ball before it can bounce twice. Bring a water bottle, because you’re sure to sweat during this cardio workout.
