5 SURPRISING WAYS SCOOTING CAN BOOST HEALTH & FITNESS
Staying active has always been what everyone wants to achieve and what many continues to recommend but it can be hard especially for those living in big cities. Convenience plays a major factor in it. Why would one want to get in on their bikes and arrive sweating and heaving when an Uber is just as fast, if not faster, and you stay presentable? But with how much processed food that permeates our diet, not to mention the harm that vehicles do to the environment, it no surprise that people are changing their minds about using alternative ways of traveling.
Much like a spy gear, what's great about a scooter is its small size. You can easily carry one into a train or a bus without getting side-eyes from other commuters like you would with a bike. Scooters are also small enough to weave through foot traffic. And, finally, it offers almost as much health benefits as bikes or rollerblades. So let's dive deeper into how scooting is beneficial to your health and fitness.
1. Fat burner
Much like walking, jogging, or cycling, scooting requires human power. And because scooting is a low-intensity and a low-impact activity, it is actually preferable for people with sensitive joints. Not only that; scooters are perfect for those who want to kickstart their weight loss plan incrementally.
2. Ditch your morning coffee
If you're like me and find it hard to wake up without a strong jolt, then scooting might be the one to help you let go of your morning coffee. A quick lap around a block or a park, I find, is exactly what I need to jumpstart my day. I no longer need coffee to wake up. Instead, I drink it to appreciate the taste and flavor and in much lesser quantity than before.
3. Stress reliever
Scoot your worries away as you enjoy riding through the streets, feeling the wind on your face, enjoying the scenery all around. Take it to the park and ride around nature on a warm and beautiful day. That is a sure way to lower your stress, forget about your problems, and just enjoy the moment.
4. Take it to lunch
Just as the clock hits noon, people are quick to get up and get out for lunch. Some walk to the nearest available food stall or fast food. But with a scooter, you're able to go farther, exploring more places as you shop around for lunch. Once you're done, scooting back to work can be an added activity level in your day. Unlike bikes, you won't be coming back to the office a sweaty mess.
5. Change up your exercise
It can be demotivating to be doing your routine as before, or even more so, but you're not getting results. Instead of hitting the treadmill twice as hard, how about you hop on your scooter and scoot around for a while? Hitting the wall is your body saying it's gotten used to the activity you're doing. A little change in rhythm will only serve to keep things interesting and when you do go back to your routine, you'll realize it was exactly the break your body needed to perform even better.
