New Workouts for Better Health
By Donna Stark
Want to get back into shape? Hoping to shed a few of those unwanted pounds you are carrying around? Good for you! There is nothing better than to prioritize your overall well-being, but how are you going to do it? What are you interested in? With all the fitness options available, this decision could be a little overwhelming! Fortunately, your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic can help. Take a look at just a few of their favorite workouts that will help you reach all your goals.
The weather is still nice enough to pull out those old rollerblades of yours from the closet. Remember how much fun they used to be? So much fun that you may not even notice how much of a workout rollerblading provides your body. Before you head out though, make sure you are wearing a helmet and elbow and knee pads. Better to be safe than sorry!
You don't need to live in the mountains to get vertical with this sport. You can simply head on over to your local rock-climbing gym for an exhilarating sweat session. Although many people think rock climbing is just an upper body workout, you can count on your legs getting a workout too. Just remember to pack your strength! And if this sport is new to you, let the instructor know so they can take some extra time helping you get set up and calming any last-minute nerves. It really is that exhilarating!
If you are looking for a fresh and fun way to stay fit, give aerial yoga a try! Aerial yoga is a mix of yoga, Pilates, and dance that uses hammocks (or suspended silk ropes) for strength building and toning. These classes are a lot of fun but don't let that fool you. Aerial yoga is also an extremely challenging workout that will get you sweating and grunting in no time.
If running isn't your thing and strolling through town is too slow for you, consider joining a power walking group. Power walking is the perfect in-between of the two and is known for its vast array of health benefits. On top of that, it is relatively inexpensive! All you need are some comfortable clothes and a supportive pair of shoes.
Improved Health and Wellness
As important as it is to exercise every day, it's also just as important to mix a little bit of fun into your workouts, so don't be afraid to try something new. It may end up being exactly what you need to stay committed to this new, healthy journey you are embarking on!
