Summer – Try New Things and Work On Your Fitness

summer_sportsSummer is a fantastic season to break out of your comfort zone and to try something new – how about some new sports?

With the sunshine boosting your energy, it is therefore the perfect time to work on your health and fitness, and try some sports or leisure activities that you’ve always wanted to, but haven’t had the motivation to work on.

As such, we thought that we would share with you our top 3 favourite summer sports that we are just itching to try!

Water Polo – Water polo is a brilliant water sport that builds up endurance, body strength and flexibility.

It is also great for toning your arms and your legs (which lets be honest – is something that we all want!) and is one of the best sports that you can play that will help maintain your cardiovascular health.

What is more, water polo is the perfect game to play on that sun-drenched holiday you’ve got coming up. What more could you ask for?

Horse Riding – Summer is the perfect time to get outdoors and experience nature, and how much closer to nature can you get than riding a horse?

One of the best things about horse riding is that anyone can take part, regardless of age or ability, making it the perfect family activity.

If you’re more into the health side of horse riding then you’ll be pleased to know that it’s also a great activity to do to build up fitness, muscle tone and muscle strength and has been proven to boost the serotonin levels in the brain, helping you to feel less stressed out and a lot more happier!

Surfing – There is certainly an air of romanticism to surfing, and with the sandy beaches and beautiful scenery it’s not hard to see why.

Remarkably, the health benefits of surfing are fantastic too.

Not only does it improve your balance (which helps you as you age!), it increases your core strength, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness.

Pretty great for a summer sport!

All three of these sports are fantastic to do with your friends and family alike, and are a great way to get outside and get active this summer.

If you have never thought about trying these sports before, why not give them a go?

Challenging yourself will not only push you physically, but it also helps you feel more fulfilled and boosts your confidence – so why not give them a go!
