6 reasons why you should swap your workout for basketball

Playing basketball is a fantastic way to keep fit.

  • Physique

No matter how much you go to the gym, or how good your squatting or burpees is, until you have run and super-jumped your way around a sweaty indoor court, side-stepped and sprinted around for an entire, unrelenting hour, week in week out, you have not seen your legs in their full sculpted glory.

  •  Fun time

There are no better mates than basketball teammates. They are always fun to hang out with. After every game, teammates usually head to the nearest pub to talk about the latest gist in town, relationship issues over food and drinks.

  • It’s more fun than the treadmill

Basketball keeps you super fit. And you don’t even notice you’re doing it.

Taking part in an actively competitive game makes you work harder than you ever would normally. Playing basketball at least twice a week keeps you mentally healthy.

  • More food!

Since you’re burning all those calories, you need to make sure you keep your energy levels up.

  • Great value

Anybody can join a basketball team for free as compared to the price of fitness classes and gym memberships.

  • Meet new people

Playing in one of our basketball leagues is a great way to meet new people.
