An Alternative Workout to the Gym
Lets face it, the older we get the more we need to find interesting ways of keeping fit and healthy. Spending an inordinate amount of time in the gym becomes about as pleasant as going seeing the doctor for a colonic. The slow monotonous grind within a small, poorly ventilated space can drive any person to hop on their bike and start getting a new kind of workout.
Therefore when you find a sport or hobbie like mountain biking you start to forget about the fitness aspect and actually enjoy yourself. This is key for keeping your interest and you health improving not too mention your heart pumping and insurance cover increasing but a fine way to spend an afternoon never the less.
