Dreading a New Year Fitness Regime? Try Paintball in London Instead

Paintball Fitness Regime

At this time of year, many of us try to get into shape by embarking on a fitness regime and diet. The problem is that the gym and other conventional exercises can quickly become a chore, which is why an activity like paintballing has a better chance of keeping you engaged and boosting your chances of improving your fitness.

“New Year, New Me” is a phrase that you will have heard a lot at the end of last year and will continue to do so for a while. When it comes to New Year’s resolutions, you’ll find that a large percentage of them relate to health and fitness – which is probably due to the mountains of food we’re all guilty of consuming throughout the festive season.

Are you considering (and dreading) a New Year fitness regime? Why not opt for a more exciting and equally as effective alternative? In this post, we’ll highlight a few of the ways a day of paintball benefits your health and fitness, and why it’s the perfect choice for a “New You” in 2018.

Experience Intense Cardio Through Paintballing

A vital part of maintaining and improving fitness is cardiovascular exercise, especially if your focus is to lose weight. The problem many people run into is that the various types of cardio – such as running, walking, skipping and cycling – just don’t interest them enough to stick with it. This is why the unique and engaging nature of paintballing makes it such an efficient way to exercise, because you’ll actually enjoy every single moment.

So, why is paintball such a good cardio workout? It all comes down to one word: intensity! The authentic combat scenarios and the possibility of being shot is fantastic motivation to move very quickly while covering a lot of ground. The need to constantly be on the move means that your heart rate will stay high and allow you to burn more calories.

A Full-Body Paintball Workout

So we’ve established that paintball is fantastic for cardio, but the various movements and actions also provide a hefty full-body strength workout. This is perfect for anyone who’s looking for an exercise that will build muscle, increase your strength and improve flexibility.

During a day of paintball, you’ll find yourself in a wide range of positions and stances, performing movements that closely resemble popular workout exercises (repeatedly crouching with your gun is very similar to squatting with a weight, for example). This means that along with the cardio benefits, you’ll also get a continuous strength workout throughout the entirety of your paintballing day.

The Best Paintballing London has to Offer

A day of paintball in London is the perfect opportunity to rally the troops, spend some time outdoors and experience authentic combat situations. In the process, you’ll benefit hugely in regards to health and fitness. Spending the day at GO Paintball London will give you a paintballing experience like no other and provide the perfect environment to fully embrace every aspect of the sport.

Our enormous facility features five expertly-designed battlefields spread over a 50-acre area. This gives combat scenarios an enhanced sense of realism and intensity that allows players to fully immerse themselves in the action, as well as making them want to explore their surroundings and try to find tactical opportunities.

Paintball is Beneficial for Your Mind, As Well As Your Body

While the primary objective of any fitness regime is to get in shape, lose weight, or improve your cardio – another benefit that’s worth noting is the effect it has on your mental health. By exercising, you’ll find that it improves your mood, motivation and creativity levels, as well as helping some people to fight off depression. So by playing paintball on a regular basis, you will be doing both your body and mind a huge favour!

A key aspect of paintballing is the use of team tactics – and the benefits of this are transferable to your everyday life, whether it’s on a social or professional level. Using team tactics will naturally help you to improve your teamwork skills, as well as communicating with others and effectively solving problems in pressurised situations.
