Sports clubs

You’re trying to avoid the freshman fifteen, and find time to exercise, but with trying to get to grips with new College classes and meet new people, there aren’t enough hours in the day.

How about joining a sports club? You don’t have to be on an official college sports team to take part and you don’t have to have experience. You are still young and pliable enough to learn a new skill so take the plunge and join the diving club or take up fencing. Think outside the box and you can find a great way to make new friends and stay in shape.

Consider martial arts such as , Karate, Taekwondo, or Judo or maybe you want to try your hand at archery or shooting.

You might not think of it is a sport, but ballroom dancing is great exercise. You might consider handball a sport you played in grade school, but it is really good fun as a grown-up as well. Or if you aren’t scared of heights, more and more campuses are opening up indoor rock climbing facilities.

As far as racket sports go, there is more than just tennis. Consider playing racquetball or badminton.

Cycling is an incredible workout and it is something you can do on your own or as a group. Similarly, running clubs are a great way to get into a sport that you can do anytime, anywhere, with just a pair of running shoes. If you want to push yourself further, there might be a group training for a half of full marathon.

Enjoy time out on the water? Try your hand at sailing. Another sport many people begin for the first time at college is crew. Crewing a boat is an incredible workout, sure to burn mega-calories.

You are spoiled for choice of student sport clubs these days so try something new , stay fit, and meet new people. What do you have to lose?
