How Playing Golf Can Help You Stay Fit

Golf is a popular sport for many good reasons! It's a great way to achieve optimal physical and mental health and provide a deep sense of well-being. Playing in the fresh air with moderate exercise a few times a week goes a long to achieving your fitness goals. Let's have a closer look at these benefits.

A Great Calorie Burner

If you leave the golf cart behind and choose to carry your own clubs, you can burn up to 1000 calories in one game. The distance covered can be between four and five miles giving your body a great workout with the cardiovascular activity. This can help protect against type 2 diabetes, coronary artery disease, colon cancer and other chronic diseases while also improving lung function.

Foster Relationships

Golf is a great way to make a variety of new friends, start a new business relationship and connect with your local community. It offers the opportunity to have casual and serious discussions without the awkwardness of being in a sit-down, face-to-face conversation. Socializing can also help to protect against future anxiety and stress while at the same time improving self-esteem and moods over the long term. When we have a better social life and relationships, the happier and healthier we feel.

Strength Training

It's surprising the amount of strength that goes into a game of golf. Golf courses usually have hills and valleys and walking these distances can strengthen the quadriceps, hamstrings and other large muscles of your lower body. Carrying your own clubs will help to build and strengthen bones in your upper body. Your swings exercise your arms, legs, back and abdomen to also give your core muscles a good workout. Golf's low-impact activity lends itself to having fewer sports injuries but still achieving optimal health benefits.

Conclusion

Getting into shape both physically and emotionally should be fun and not a chore. Otherwise, why bother doing it? Playing a round of golf can appeal to many age groups and what better way to get outdoors while enjoying the benefits of a good workout and experiencing positive emotions.
