If you are looking for an active way to spend your time, engage the whole family and keep fit try playing paintball on holidays. It’s exciting, it’s thrilling, and it gets the adrenaline pumping. If you’re not convinced, here are some of the benefits of playing paintball:
5. Full-body workout
For your team to win you will have to put some serious work in. This includes sprinting, dodging, shooting, aiming, crawling, diving and squatting. The game is very intense and strategic and works hard at synching up your brain and body muscles.
There is not a muscle in your body that will not be used during a good game of paintball, which will help with weight loss, muscle definition, and overall fitness level.
4. Fun outdoors
Nowadays not many activities lead us outside and enchant us so much that we wish to stay there. With paintball, you will keep asking for more only because is so much fun. You will be able to let all the stress out, shoot colorful balls at people and ‘run for your life.’
After the game is done, I promise you will realize that that’s the most fun you’ve had in a while. It’s a fantastic family activity, as well as a great team bonding for corporations.
3. Endurance training
Staying in shape is sometimes hard because of the repetitive nature of our workouts. Building up your endurance is hard if you’re always checking your watch to see how much time has passed.
With paintball, endurance builds up naturally, as the game tricks you into not realizing you’re working out. Running around on the field, dodging shots and trying to hit targets makes for a good cardio exercise, which will boost your endurance in no time.
2. Strength training
Moving around with a paintball gun, safety gear and ammunition makes for perfect strength training. While you’re running towards your target or away from your attacker, or squatting in an ambush, your legs are getting toned. Your arms will benefit from shooting and lugging the gun around, while you will also build up your balance because the equipment is on the heavy side.
If you’re up for building up that muscle tone, breaking a sweat but not noticing it, paintball is the way to go. It’s the most painless way of achieving your mission, and it helps you make some friends along the way and let your competitive side loose.
1. Great for overall health
When all of the things above are considered it’s easy to see why paintball is good for your overall health. Being outdoors will improve your mood and outlook on life, endorphins released will calm you and your immune system will be boosted.
