Excerpt from BBC Get Inspired:
Football provides a great variety of physical exercise as in a game a player will have to run, kick, dodge, sprint and jump. It helps increase endurance, promote agility, develop physical coordination and build muscle strength.
Players remain in constant motion, with about five miles typically run in a 90-minute, 11-a-side game. This effort burns approximately 630 calories. A study by the University of Copenhagen found that playing football on a regular basis boosted cardiovascular fitness, aided fat loss and reduced blood pressure.
As it is a team game, it is an excellent way to develop communication skills and learn to work effectively with other people. Football clubs also offer a variety of social events beyond simply playing the sport.
Good for you
Our provision can improve your fitness and keep you healthy, not only in body but in mind too. The physical benefits of a footy session that’s appropriate for you are an accepted fact these days, but now evidence suggests that there is a massive psychological benefit to excercise too. So come along and boost your positive feelings and keep illnesses such as dementia at bay in a great environment at Sporting.
Safe and organised
