There are so many reasons to join a sports team as an adult and doing so to stay fit is just one of them.

It’s fun

You know how important it is to put movement time into your day but too often it seems that that is the thing that has to take a back seat. The goal to joining a sports league is to make it a part of your weekly routine and a part of your life. You will move more, exercise more, and have fun at the same time.

Work out with friends

The sports league will provide a lot of new friends, and really expand your social circle. If you are in a new community or a new work place, it can be hard to meet new people. A sports league is a group of people who enjoy the same things as you do, and who are looking for the same benefits, so it gives you a group and community for connection. Whether you like soccer, softball, Tae Kwon Do, basketball or bowling, the leagues are a way of keeping fit and staying connected.

Include your family

This is something that you can all do together. No matter what it is, get your family involved and experience the fun as a group.

Work on a new skill

Changing up your workout routine is a good thing to do, but so is working on a something that you haven’t done for a long time. Joining a sports league keeps the brain fit too, and that is very motivating.

How do you find a sports league?

Check with schools, recreation centres, community partners, or check with your workplace’s wellness department and see what is available. If there is something you are looking for that is not there, organize it yourself with a group of friends. The possibilities are endless.

Joining a sports league will make you feel connected, and you will sleep better, eat better and discover new ways to stay fit and fabulous.
