Getting in shape in Marbella
We have said goodbye to the past year and we are welcoming the New Year with lot of hopes, wishes and dreams. This is the best time to reflect on the events of the past year and to make new plans, set goals and commit to resolutions for 2019. The most popular New Year’s resolutions lists typically include: losing weight, eating more healthily and exercising. This clearly points out that people are concerned about health, beauty and wellbeing. Regular physical activity plays an essential role in creating a new, healthier lifestyle. It is not only about weight loss, it can significantly improve the quality of our life, in many and sometimes unexpected ways. Regular physical activity creates a sense of happiness and excitement; makes our bodies more beautiful, strong and attractive; increases our energy levels; helps us relax, relieves stress and aids better sleep; stimulates our nervous system and sharpens our mind and brain; strengthens our heart and helps to build bone density; it can improve our social life etc…the benefits are endless.
We have interesting tips for those who have decided to take their health and training to a whole new level: sport in Marbella; the environment, the climate and the infrastructure makes for an exceptional place to get into shape. The moderate climate affords for outdoor sports activities throughout the year: long walks or cycling on the beach promenades of San Pedro, Puerto Banus and Marbella, hiking in the mountains and swimming. What about golf, paddle or water sports? You can learn more about the outdoor sport options in Marbella from one of our previous posts Marbella, sporting city.
