Whenever someone mentions ziplining, they talk about the thrill of flying high in the sky, the incredible views, the experience of adventure, but what many fail to notice are the hidden health benefits of this great outdoor activity. Without much ado, let’s take a look at some of the possible health benefits of ziplining that you never really thought about before and may have overlooked.
Burns Calories: Yep! We are not messing with you. The hike as well as the energy required to complete the zipline ride will create a calorie deficit and help you burn fat. Fat reserves are used by the body whenever you create a healthy calorie deficit with outdoor physical activities. Exercise in this fun form is good for your body.
Good for the Heart: Cardiovascular activities such as ziplining are known to keep the heart in a good and healthy condition. The fresh air, the hike and the zip line ride will push you to do more in the future. It reduces your blood pressure and has numerous other benefits that keep your heart happy and healthy.
Relieves Stress: You are too focused on having fun zipping across exotic locations to worry about a bad breakup, pending bills, your annoying neighbour next door, or a well meaning aunt who’s worried about your marriage plans. All this and more can be forgotten when you go zipping next time. This reduces cortisol, that dreaded stress hormone responsible for changing the shape of your previously flat belly. What causes belly fat? Cortisol. How can you fight this ‘stress hormone’ cortisol? Ziplining is one way to go about it.
