Fort Lee, NJ (PRWEB) February 18, 2013
Snowshoeing, once a necessary mode of transportation in deep snow, is making a comeback as a great recreational activity. In its latest blog titled “Snowshoeing: A Cardio Adventure,” FitnessConnoisseur.com offers new insight into the cardio benefits of snowshoeing – the fastest-growing wintertime sport.
According to FitnessConnoisseur.com, snowshoe sales went up 7.5 percent in the winter of 2011 compared to the previous year. Snowshoeing is gaining in popularity as a recreational exercise because it’s a relatively low-impact form of exercise, but nonetheless offers significant cardiovascular output.
Plus, it’s a great excuse to get outside during the cold months. Regardless of how low the mercury drops, people stay warm while snowshoeing because it requires a bit of exertion. The wintertime landscape offers a more open and defoliated view. With a pair of snowshoes on, anyone can blaze a trail along paths that simply don’t exist during the summer or spring months.
Snowshoeing is an affordable sport to get started with. Once the initial investment in snowshoes in made, no additional gear is necessary. Many state and local parks are equipped with snowshoeing trails, and folks living in a rural setting are often able to snowshoe in their own back yards.
For anyone who is reluctant to invest in snowshoes before trying it out, many ski mountains offer snowshoe rentals.
