Looking for a way to get in better shape without going to the gym or buying expensive exercise equipment? Consider joining an adult sports team! Get fit, make friends, and have fun.
Team sports aren’t just for kids – there are leagues for adults too! Keep reading to find out why adult sports teams are good for your health and how you can join a team!
Health Benefits of a Sports Team
Adults care more about healthy living than ever before – eating well, staying active, and reducing stress are a priority. But when it comes to our physical health it can be hard to stay motivated and committed to an exercise routine.
So instead of dragging yourself to the gym, consider a new type of cardio workout – sports! Soccer, basketball, tennis, volleyball, flag football, and ultimate frisbee require stamina and cardiovascular fitness. You can improve your heart health by playing sports a few times a week.
Many sports also build muscle strength. And building lean muscle can help you lose weight and look lean. Sports like soccer or field hockey rely more on lower body strength while tennis, basketball, or football also require upper body strength. You might be surprised how sore your body feels after playing sports as an adult – it’s just a sign of your muscles getting stronger!
Playing certain sports can also improve your bone health. Sports with jumping and lateral movement are especially good for the bones.
As you can see, there are plenty of physical benefits from sports but there are mental health benefits too. Playing sports can help you reduce stress, increase focus, and improve your mood. Not to mention the community building of team sports can help people feel happier and better connected.
