Fitness, as we see it today, is an evolving field in itself. Many look at it differently today and owing to the changes that the pandemic has brought about, we only rest assured that staying fit is the way forward and it must be given prime importance over other aspects of our lives. Sporting activities all across the globe have also seen a revolution of sorts. Right from being played with crowds, to now behind closed doors.

Although, when we look at fitness, the first thing that still comes to most people’s minds is that you need to have a toned body, a perfect mental being and an ideal version of the “gym” and endless gym membership is a stereotype. Have we ever wondered if we could still remain fit and not have to go to the gym for that? The ideal version of fitness doesn’t also always include going to the gym. Today being mentally aware and stable also plays an important role in being “healthy”. Listed below is a list of 5 sports that will surely make you fit, without going to the gym.

Swimming: All you need is a good pair of swimwear: a swimming costume, a cap and goggles. Swimming is an individual or team racing sport that requires the use of one’s entire body to move through the water. One just needs to know a basic stroke that will help you to move through water like breaststroke, freestyle, etc. Swimming provides for a healthy workout and builds endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness.

Tennis: A great sport that can be played outdoors to maintain your fitness, strength and agility. It’s a great workout and is extremely affordable.

Football: In order to play Football, all you need is an open space, like playing fields (pitches) to gymnasiums, streets, school playgrounds, parks, or beaches. It’s an easy sport to play, inexpensive and will still keep you away from the gym.

Cycling: Cycling is a great sport. It has multiple benefits like, increased strength and flexibility, improved joint mobility, decreased stress levels, improved posture and coordination and strengthened bones. You can always rent or hire if not purchase one.

Running: For this sport, you only need a decent pair of sports shoes. Running is a great way to kick-start your fitness journey. It might help you reduce your risk of death from heart attacks, strokes, and other common diseases. Running is a good way to reduce stress.
