Summer Activities: Kayaking

Kayaking can be an excellent form of exercise that’s also fun to do during the summer. As a seemingly low impact activity, it can actually improve your aerobic fitness, strength, flexibility, as well as balance. Along with this, studies have shown that kayaking also leads to stress reduction, as well as an improvement in mental health.

But like any other activity, there are precautions and it is always smart to warm up before exercising.

If you have any pain during exercises, or are unsure about what you are doing, please consult your local physiotherapist before continuing.
