Mit Spaß fit bleiben: Wie du deine Freizeit aktiv gestaltest und gleichzeitig in Form kommst

Provide motivation while having fun

If you want to work on your fitness, you don’t have to miss out on fun. On the contrary, the more committed you are to physical activity, the more willing you are to give your best. In order to work on your performance and endurance , you don’t necessarily have to go to a gym. This article reveals how you can enjoy staying fit.

Go all out when bouldering

Bouldering is now a trend sport – and rightly so: through free climbing you train the entire body – after all, you use all muscle groups. The sport is practiced at jumping height, while additional soft mats are placed in front of each wall. Therefore, you don’t need any security or a belt. Climbing walls and routes of varying levels of difficulty are available to you. This means you can really let off steam even as a beginner. Many people like to try bouldering with friends – time in the bouldering hall flies in good company.

Jumping on a trampoline is not just recommended for children

You may associate running around on the trampoline with your childhood. But there are now facilities that are also aimed at adults. This extraordinary sport not only improves your mood, but also helps you lose weight – you burn up to 700 calories per hour while jumping on the trampoline . By the way, when you jump up and down you train your legs, bottom, back and arms. So you can look forward to a full-body workout here, with only minimal strain on your joints while jumping. The trampoline softly cushions even intense shocks – if you are looking for an alternative to jogging, this sport is the best choice for you. 

Ax throwing as a creative alternative

Are you looking for an unusual sport? Then you should familiarize yourself with ax throwing. This activity has become established in Canada and Scandinavia and is very popular there. The leisure activity is now also offered in several German cities. When you throw the axes, you train your arms, abdominal muscles and back muscles intensively. The goal is to throw a long-handled double ax at a target. The latter has a weight of at least 500 grams, while the distance to the target must be 6.1 meters. 

You should only pursue this sport under the guidance of an experienced coach and on a suitable facility. You steel your muscles, especially during an intensive session. Make sure you have a firm footing when throwing and also strengthen your thighs and buttocks.

Train complex movements with hula hoop

At first glance, balancing the hula hoop looks child’s play. But if you swing your hips yourself, you will quickly notice that there are complex movement sequences behind the exercise. Adults often need to practice a little until they can get the hoop to circle around their waist. If you succeed in the movement, an intensive training of the core, buttocks and leg muscles takes place. On top of that, endurance and coordination are strengthened.

Combine training with entertainment

If you do sports, you don’t have to miss out on entertainment. You can read a book or enjoy a film at the same time. It is advisable to pursue the activity in question within your own four walls. If you are already an older generation, you should get a senior treadmill . With this device you have the opportunity to gently increase your fitness level. A seated ergometer bike also proves to be a good choice in this regard. With it you can strengthen your leg and buttocks muscles in a comfortable position.


Sport doesn’t always have to push you to your physical limits. You can also increase your fitness gently and have fun at the same time. This will keep you motivated to exercise regularly. Simply do one of the activities presented in the article.
