You name it, Gems Bougainvillas has it.
Life around your bungalow can be pleasurably hectic with relation to physical activity like sports recreation, exercising, and even yoga and meditation. But there is a catch. A majority of new residents like you might be moving in from apartment blocks and houses in congested parts of the city. For them, physical exercise might have meant, at best, walking in a neighbourhood park or promenade early mornings or late evenings, when the weather is at its most pleasant – like hundreds and thousands of men and women across the country.
Now, with the opportunity of an outdoor gym, rock-climbing wall, two Clubs with swimming pools, multiple playing courts and so on just a stone’s throw away, you must learn not to throw the opportunity along with the stone! You must ask yourselves the question you couldn’t possibly ask before becoming residents at this exclusive bungalow development at Gems Bougainvillas Joka; simply because the answer didn’t exist so conveniently all around your home!
The question is: Is walking, on its own, sufficient exercise to help you lose weight, improve your health, reverse lifestyle diseases like heart ailments and diabetes and make you fit? The answer is: Walking does have its benefits, but on its own it won’t help you achieve too many health or fitness goals. There are other parameters, which you can now avail of at Gems Bougainvillas that you can be trained on and that have more benefits than walking.
Walking and other exercises should have equal weightage in your life – especially with such beautiful walking and jogging tracks around your Gems Bougainvillas bungalow. Each is surrounded by swathes of green – manicured lawns and quiet tree-lined avenues. Continue walking in addition to playing sports like tennis, volleyball, badminton, cricket or basketball. It’s never too late to learn. You can form a team per sport with other residents like yourself! You’re never too old to do other forms of training like strength, flexibility, mobility and agility at the outdoor gym & fitness lawn or swimming pool, AC multi gym, and steam rooms at the Club.
Experts say the ideal weekly exercise-to-walk ratio should be walking 7,000 – 10,000 steps in addition to strength training twice a week, flexibility thrice a week and a moderate cardio workout a couple of times a week. If you are serious about staying fit and healthy, jot down a plan with the help of the coach or physio at Club Opal or Crimson. You can even consult one from outside and share your current fitness levels and medical history with him or her. After all, it is important to mix and match sensibly.
There is always the risk of people getting bored of walking as it is a low intensity cardio workout. For best results and in order to keep yourself motivated, you need to add variety to your fitness regimen and complement other workouts.
In the next couple of blogs we will follow through with suggestions of what you may enjoy; like mobility and strength training, running, cycling, swimming and aerobics. Adding these workouts will enhance your overall wellbeing.
