Bouldering and Rock climbing:
Even if you don’t live in an area where you can go bouldering or rock climbing in nature, it’s highly likely that there is an indoor rock climbing and bouldering center within driving distance of your home. If you’re a beginner, don’t worry as you’ll be able to book a session with a trainer, who will teach you all of the techniques that you’ll need to know in order to get started. If you enjoy rock climbing or bouldering, you may be able to get a discounted pass that will allow you visit your local rock climbing center on numerous occasions. Such as a 10 trip ticket, that will save you a significant amount of money.
If there are natural bouldering and rock climbing opportunities in your area, always make sure to book an escorted tour with a skilled guide as you don’t want to get into trouble by taking on routes that are too difficult for your current skill level.
Whether your goal is to run a marathon or you simply want to work your way up to running your first 5km run, running can be a fun activity by joining a local community running group. If you’re interested, Park Run is a charitable organization that runs free 5km runs each Saturday around the world. The objective of park run is for runners and walkers of different abilities to run together and to support each other to meet their goals. Park Run is a race against yourself and you’ll get a free barcode to scan that will record your time each week. After your run, you’ll be able to go to a breakfast or coffee event with your fellow runners, where you’ll be able to make new like minded, active friends.
Frisbee golf is increasingly becoming more popular around the world. The challenge of frisbee golf, is the same as in real golf but except instead of getting a golf ball into a small hole, your goal will be to use frisbees of varying weights to get your final putter sized frisbee into a giant chain net at the end of each hole. Part of the fun of playing frisbee golf, is deciding which sized frisbee to use for each shot, just as in golf you need to decide which club to use to get you close to your next hole.
So if you love being active and are always looking for more ways to get active and to move your body, it’s a great idea to take up running, frisbee golf, bouldering and rock climbing. Especially if you want to spend more time exploring the great outdoors.
