Are you into Fun & Fitness?

Looking for a New Challenge?

We all know how much time and effort it takes to get into shape, in fact under HSE guidelines we should be aiming for at least 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week. Making that much time for the gym is hard to keep up so how can we build fitness into our daily routine? More than ever the challenge is to find a way to move more in a way that you enjoy in order to look after your long term well being. Perhaps an adult scooter is the answer?

What are the benefits?

  • Engages hip muscles, glutes, and core.

  • Quads on the front of the leg.

  • Hamstrings

  • Posterior chain is engaged a lot more throughout scooting than it would be in cycling.

  • With cycling, you generally don’t get to lengthen the leg completely, especially if you’re in the clips. With scooting you can drive forwards, you’re working all the way through driving your leg forwards and backwards.

  • Hip flexors: collective name for the muscles responsible for lifting your knee towards your body. 

  • The hip-flexors get the chance to be liberated. With cycling, you generally keep the knee in front of you, with the hip-flexors you get the chance to open them by moving forwards and back.

  • Different workload on the glutes as well.

  • The calf, the upper calf, the gastrocnemius and the soleus at the lower base of the back of the calf, certainly get a higher workload as well.
