Different Sports To Try Out

Get your heart rate rising.


Sometimes when you want to get active, you want to try something different. Instead of mainstream sports like football, tennis, rugby, and cricket, why not try something new? When you dive into the world of sports, there are so many different types that you can try, all with their different benefits. Skateboarding, ice skating, kayaking, trampolining, the list can go on. All of these sports will get your heart rate rising, muscle fitness growing and will benefit your mental health, which is extremely important for your overall health. 

So, with many different sports for you to try, below are four for you to consider. 


Skateboarding is a great sport that works the majority of your body. Your leg muscles like your calves and quads get worked whilst skating, whilst your core and arms get a workout when trying the different tricks that you can try. There are plenty of skate t-shirts for you to try if you want to get into the fashionable side of skating. 


Do you like to be in the water when out on holiday? Then why not try it when you are at home? Kayaking is a sport that is always growing in popularity due to the adventures it can bring. There are many different types of kayaking you can do, some in open water whilst others on the open sea. With a quick google, you may find there are several clubs nearby that you could try out - why not bring a friend with you at the same time? 


Trampolining is a lot more fun and complex than you may initially have thought. Yes, you can bounce up and down when having fun when growing up, but when you get older it becomes a lot more complex and with it even more fun. You can learn different summersaults, tricks and routines with a partner. It’s great cardio and works all your muscles, giving you a big workout. Most leisure centers will offer trampolining lessons, some with a free trial so you can give it a go before committing to a large sum of weekly sessions. If you have a friend who wants to get into shape, why not convince them to join you - this is a great way to motivate yourself to keep on going. 

Rock climbing 

Rock climbing is another sport that has recently grown in popularity due to different versions of it being readily available. In most places, you will find a rock climbing wall which offers weekly lessons. If you don’t have a rock climbing wall, you may find you have a bouldering wall which is very similar but lower to the ground. Rock climbing relies heavily on your strength, meaning the more you practise, the stronger you will get. It also improves your cardiovascular strength and is also a great way to meet new people.
