, the Only On-line Bowling Pro Shop Network, Cites Bowling as a Fun Way to Improve Health During the Height of Summer Heat

Posted On August 07, 2013 – In Bowling Blog, Press Releases With No comment

SmartBowler recently examined information released by the Bowling Proprietors’ Association of America outlining the health benefits of the sport of bowling.  Bowling is the ideal sport for the late months of summer, when the heat index can reach unhealthy levels for outdoor exercise.

People who are looking for creative, fun ways to be active and fit should consider bowling, according to SmartBowler.  Most bowling centers are comfortably air conditioned, which makes it the perfect environment during the summer heat. (Almost all bowling centers are now smoke-free.)  Health benefits of bowling include calorie burning, which burns roughly 240 calories per hour of activity.  The activity level offered by bowling improves heart fitness, a key component of a healthy lifestyle.  As with any activity, bowling can speed up your metabolism, which can aid in weight loss.  Mental outlook can also be improved with bowling because of the social aspect associated with it.  Those looking for this benefit should consider joining a bowling team at their local bowling center.

Lifting the bowling ball and the action of rolling the ball aid in strengthening arms, shoulders, chest and leg muscles.  Physical endurance and maintaining bone density can also be gained and improved by bowling.  The average bowler walks an average of 60 feet per turn, or about 6/10 of a mile in a three-game series.  Through bowling scholarships, millions of dollars are awarded each year to youth bowlers.  In turn, this helps bowlers reach their educational goals and keeping our nation as a whole learning to live healthy lifestyles and pursue what makes them happy.
