Kayaking at sunset

Kayaking is a popular water activity for many. It’s fun and a great way to stay active too. While kayaking does require skill, it’s quite easy to pick up, especially if you have a professional guiding you through the various techniques and maneuvers.

If you have yet to try kayaking, you don’t know what you’re missing! Here are some reasons to take up kayaking:

It’s an intense workout

While kayaking seems like a leisurely activity, it actually burns plenty of calories. It’s a high-energy workout consisting of low-impact cardio. It can help you improve your stamina and heart health. While it may come across as an arm workout, kayaking involves plenty of core strength too. Paddling requires you to balance your core and move your torso in a way that can propel the kayak.

Kayaking is a great way to get some exercise in the week since you’re not confined to a space, like training in the gym. Stay active on the weekends with regular kayaking trips with friends and family. You can even book kayaking tours with a group and go on a solo adventure, making new friends.

You can kayak in any body of water

Kayaking isn’t limited to the sea; you can kayak in a river and a small lake too. Explore diverse environments with the help of your kayak. If you plan on taking up kayaking regularly, invest in portable equipment so you can launch from any riverside, shore, or dock. Your kayak can take you to some amazing locations you’ve never seen before!

It’s something fun to do outdoors

We can’t emphasize enough how great kayaking feels. In a world where we are mostly caught up in a monotonous routine, taking the time out to go kayaking can really help elevate your mood. Being outdoors and doing something fun with a group of friends can keep things fresh and fun!
