Keep Fit & Healthy on an Electric Scooter

As well as being a fun, affordable and environmentally friendly way to get around, riding an electric scooter is also a great way to improve your health, fitness and wellbeing.

Get Out of the Car and on Your Feet!

In this modern world, it’s fair to say that many of us have a slightly too sedentary lifestyle. Hours a day are spent sitting at our desks and in our cars. As well as the slightly rounded position that many of us favour being bad for our backs, sitting for too long is also bad for general health.

In recent years there have been positive movements towards incorporating more standing time into our days. Standing desks have become a common sight in most modern workplaces. In the same way, using an electric scooter to get around instead of sitting in the car is great for your posture, helping to prevent back pain.

Fresh Air Boost

Every time you choose take your escooter out for a spin, you benefit from getting more fresh air into your body. As well as cleaning your lungs, the increased flow of oxygen you get from fresh air helps you to digest your food more efficiently (great for weight loss!) and strengthens your immune system by helping white blood cells function properly, fighting off bacteria and germs. (If the sun’s shining, you’ll be soaking up vitamin D which supports a strong immune system too.)

Fresh air also boosts energy levels and concentration as more oxygen improves brain function. On top of all that, oxygen affects your serotonin levels, so a blast of fresh air can help to relieve stress and anxiety, leaving you feeling happier and more relaxed.

Burn Extra Calories

As an added bonus, recent studies suggest that standing also burns more calories than sitting due to the number and volume of muscles the body naturally uses to stay upright – so consider your electric scooter journey and extra boost to any weight loss plan!

Those extra muscles you’re using when riding an escooter are all about body balance, which naturally happens as you start to scoot. The body’s core muscles around the stomach, pelvis and back are used for stabilisation every time you ride, naturally improving your core strength in a way that we like to think is more fun than hours of planks and sit-ups. If you want to get your body moving even more, try escootering up and down inclines – the shift in balance makes your core work even harder!

Explore the Great Outdoors

One of the best things about owning an electric scooter is that it gives you complete freedom. There are so many places and outdoor spaces that aren’t accessible by car, but might be too far to walk. Having an escooter encourages you to get out and about.

A great support for people with limited mobility to get a little more active, electric scooters are so much fun to ride that they motivate everyone to take that extra trip, go somewhere new, experience something different. So, jump on your escooter and go – it’s great for both your physical and mental health.
