Experience 4 Benefits of Snowshoeing
Build Muscle with a Low Impact Activity
The snow acts as a cushion to protect your knees. Plus, when you work poles into your snowshoe outing, you are conditioning your arms, back and shoulders. Snowshoeing is a great fitness activity for people of all ages who are looking for a low impact activity while enjoying the winter air.
Burn More Calories
Did you know you can burn more calories snowshoeing over walking? That’s reason enough to give it a try!
Get Outside and Enjoy Nature
Spending time being active outside is a great way to unwind and de-stress. The aroma of nature can also help decrease stress levels. As an added benefit, while your cheeks are getting rosy and you are breathing in fresh air, just think of what you’re not breathing in: the pollutants and germs found in the indoor air!
Time Spent Alone or Time Spent With Friends is Never a Waste
When you get outside to enjoy winter you are exposing yourself to a beauty that can only be had during that particular season: the crisp air, the blanket of white and the peacefulness of the great outdoors. Whether you use the time to contemplate life, give gratitude or be mindful; or, you use the experience to catch up with dear friends or family, time spent outside can never be classified as wasted time.
