5 Sports for People with Reduced Fitness
In the hustle of everyday life, the fitness that we once had, doesn’t stay because obviously, it takes time to maintain it. You get so busy with adulthood and responsibilities that 24 hours on the clock fall pretty short for your aims and objectives for the day. The days and years go by, trying to establish some steadiness in your life, promising yourself that once you get everything in your life straight, you’ll jump right back to the routine that you used to follow for your fitness. But when that time comes, you realize that so much time away from your original routine (age also being a factor) is just not suitable to be just adopted again.
So how do you get back on the road to fitness? Well, small and steady steps will help you back on the road to fitness. Here’s a list of a few sports/exercises that you can use to get back to the fitness glory that you once boasted.
⦁ Walking: You might be thinking that what good will this do? “I walk every day, yet I’m nowhere close to my original fitness.” Well, brisk walking (with some weight like a ⦁ sandbag) is a good starting exercise to get you back on the road to fitness. It is a simple, cardiovascular activity that stimulates blood flow. Remember, a casual stroll will not cut it. Keep a reasonably good pace, one that makes you breathless. Gradually increase your distance, and your stamina should be back on track.
⦁ Swimming: In my opinion, swimming is the best exercise for people with little fitness. It doesn’t cause a lot of stress to your body, yet is the best for people with all sorts of fitness levels. Due to the buoyancy, you do not feel any extra pressure on your joints, yet the resistance of water to movement makes it very effective to exercise. Swimming is an all-body exercise, and regularly going for a swim will get you back in shape in no time at all.
⦁ Golf: Yes, golf is indeed a good workout for those who’re not as fit as they used to be. The movement required in taking a shot does not require a lot of pre-requisite fitness, like in other sports, and the walk between shots is usually brisk, making it an effective, low-stress workout for you.
⦁ Cycling: This is another very effective exercise. You are essentially taking a vehicle and pedaling it from point A to point B. In that journey, you’re strengthening your heart, improving your blood flow, while also cutting down on the unnecessary fat that you may have accumulated over the years. It is recommended that you join a group to keep you motivated and regular in this activity.
⦁ Dance: Dancing is also very effective in getting back to fit, and also a very fun way to do so. It’s an activity which you can do with your family, and it can also serve as a way of bonding.
