Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is an excellent cardiovascular exercise and it provides an intense upper body workout so you’ll build strength in your:

  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Arms
  • Chest
  • Fingers

It also requires good flexibility and depending on where the next step is you will hold your body in unusual positions. With enough repetition, you will also improve your coordination, all while doing mentally challenging movements that are not monotonous.


When you practice skateboard, you propel yourself forward with your lower body, and to turn, you lean your body while keeping your balance on the skate.

If you do it regularly, you’ll definitely build up your endurance in your core and legs. You will also improve your flexibility as you learn to control the board. It can also be a good way to work out, even if you’re not doing spins and jumps or riding down railings.


When you jump you’re getting a cardio exercise as well as a great core workout, glute, balance, and legs. You have to keep your core tighter than normal to keep your balance.

Jumping on a trampoline is becoming a very popular calorie-burning workout, especially with trampoline gyms opening up everywhere. Trampoline classes in a gym may involve other moves such as jogging, mountain climbers, or lunges.


You might not hear about fencing often, but it is another great form of movement. Fencing is a fast-action activity, meaning you’ll get a good cardio workout.

All of the movements will lead to greater flexibility, strength, coordination, agility, and balance, especially in your lower body. There is also a lot of footwork involved in this sport in addition to swinging your blade, and include lunges.
