How bowling can help keep you healthy this year

Looking for a way to work off a few of those extra calories from Christmas? For some people
exercise can be a bit of chore. If you want something more fun and uplifting this New Year,
why not try bowling? Here are four top reasons to start bowling now for a healthier lifestyle.

Burn off those pesky calories
It might not seem like you're doing much but for every game of bowling you can burn
between 160 and 300 calories. Not to mention that it's keeping you active and moving,
bringing us nicely onto the next point.

Give your muscles a workout
You use your whole body when you bowl. Your legs, arms and back all get a great weightbased
workout and help keep you balanced as you walk and swing the ball. Not only are you
stretching and strengthening your muscles but you're improving your flexibility too. Just
make sure you stretch before you bowl, especially if you're a beginner, so that you don't pull
a muscle trying to get that oh-so-elusive strike.

Put a spring in your step
Like any form of exercise, bowling can help keep your heart healthy. In fact just by keeping
active you lower your risk of heart disease, strokes and diabetes. Plus, it can improve your
circulation and help lower your cholesterol levels and blood pressure.

Shake off the January blues
Bowling is a great form of stress relief: from the satisfaction of getting a strike or two, to
having a good old giggle with your family and friends. You can meet new people as well as
gather together those you're closest to.

No matter what you're aiming for in 2014, bowling can help you tostay happy, active and
healthy. Get down to your local TenPin now and give it a go!
