In summer, when the sun is blazing down on you, there’s nothing better than diving in a cool, clear, outdoor swimming pool to keep your body temperature comfortable. Do a short spell of swimming and notice the difference it has on your body and mind. Swimming is the total body and mind workout.
Tennis is the ideal summer sport. Playing against a friend or tennis partner provides the competitive edge that you may need to work that little bit harder. Tennis is great for developing toned arms and legs. For variety you can play doubles tennis, although this doesn’t burn quite as many calories.
Cycling in the sun is a great experience. With the sun blazing down on you and the wind blowing through your hair provides a great middle ground to keep your body temperature constant. Cycling is great for working and toning the leg muscles and the best part is, you won’t even realise your exercising them!
This summer, why not find a place to hike to burn some excess calories. Get on your hiking shoes and find a rural trek. Go with a friend, a family member or even your partner. When hiking you won’t even realise your exercising, but it is highly effective. In fact it burns around 450 calories per hour or more.
