Winter sure gave us the blues and a bad case of cabin fever this year. Now that spring is finally here to bring some relief, why stay indoors when you could be breathing in the fresh air and enjoying nature? This spring is a perfect time to try a new outdoor activity that is good for both your body and soul: kayaking. Here are some reasons to rent a kayak from the experts at Jordanelle Rentals & Marina this spring.
Paddling a kayak takes a lot of core strength and muscles and can help tone areas that aren’t usually engaged. Kayaking is also a great upper body workout, as the resistance of the water provides an effective strength workout for your shoulders, arms, back, and chest, among other areas.
Exploration and Adventure
You can kayak on a serene lake or on wild waters and waterfalls. You can take the kayak out early in the morning, before anyone else is on the water, and watch the sun come up over the mountains. Paddle along leisurely, or compete in marathon racing or water polo – the possibilities are endless.
Kayaking is a great way to get away from your daily worries. Most kinds of exercise reduce stress as endorphins are sent to your brain and lift your mood, but the methodical movements of kayaking may be described as meditation in motion for your body.
Excellent Fishing Opportunities
Using a kayak to fish instead of a motorboat is much quieter, so you won’t scare away the fish. According to our friends at yakangler.com, it also allows you more access to smaller and more narrow areas that boats can’t fit into.
Great Activity for Couples
Kayaking can give you some cathartic alone time, but it is also a wonderful activity for couples. The beauty of nature can be very romantic, and there is no better way to reconnect than by gliding over smooth waters and getting some low-impact exercise together.
