For those of you who shiver in fear at the thought of playing that overly competitive game of sport, hitting the gym or going for a jog, this post is for you guys. Yes, there’s that initial dread of getting up from your cozy couch perched nicely by the warm fire and stepping out into the cold winter air, but dread no longer. Here’s some tips on how you can laugh, have fun and get fit in tandem.
Golf not competitive enough? Football too competitive for you? Well why not combine them together into the perfect fit and play a round of footgolf. The aim of the game is fairly easy. Think golf with your feet, no putters, 9 irons and wedges needed. All you need is a standard sized football and a compatible golf course. And before you complain of the size of the holes, they are expanded so that a football can fit nicely inside. It’s not too strenuous. It’s just like going out into the park with your mates. You can chinwag as you casually kick the ball as near to the hole as possible. And what’s the best thing about normal golf? Yes that’s right. The 19th hole. Well it’s the same in footgolf where you can put your feet up, cool down or warm up depending on the weather and sink a delicious well deserved pint of lager.
Alternatively, how about taking part in the recent craze that is bubble football? Gather your close friends together from that 7 a side team you secretly hate and get involved in something a bit different. It’s a great way of relieving that weekly office stress and becoming the main man of your wolf pack. The adrenaline you will get is quite astounding and the whole of your body will certainly benefit from this exciting but sometimes grueling workout. You can play a range of games from standard football to British bulldog, all of which will bring out tears of laughter when you next meet up in the pub. So get your bubble football suits on and get playing!
Are your children sick of seeing you slob out on the sofa? Are they bored at weekends and want to do something with you? Well why not arrange to do a treasure hunt with them in your local park? Not only is it fun and a good form of exercise but it will bring you and your family together. So get writing your clues and get yourself off to the park early doors and set up. It’s like orienteering just without all those old people! Your kids will love it. As will you and you can get them to team up with mum and organize one for you for next time. Mix it up at Easter and Christmas. Make it extra special. Just make sure that it’s not a rainy day or it won’t be as enjoyable! In that case, a house hunt perhaps?
