Health Benefits of Bowling

Are you hitting the gym again for the same old boring exercise routine?  Main Event challenges you to try something new!  Get to your local Main Event bowling alley for your health.  Yes, bowling is good exercise with side benefits.

Bowling Burns Calories

Bowling is an anaerobic type of physical exercise, similar to walking with free weights. Bowling helps in burning calories and works muscle groups not usually exercised. The flexing and stretching in bowling works tendons, joints, ligaments, and muscles in the arms and promotes weight loss. While most sports are not for elderly people, it is possible to practice bowling very well at advanced ages.

Apart from the physical benefits, it also has psychosocial benefits, strengthening friendships or creating new ones in groups. – Wikipedia

Laughter is healthy

We think the best health benefit is from the laughter and strengthening of friendships.    Individual or family bowling brings on the laughter – by watching others or laughing at oneself, humor is healthy.

Laughter has other benefits besides burning calories, including relief of emotional stress and a workout for the muscles of the diaphragm, abdomen, back, and shoulders.  So work that core extra hard with each bowl and giggle!  See what About.com has to say about healthy laughter: 

At Main Event, bowling and laughter go naturally together and will be more fun than gym machines or any yoga leg-up downward dog kind of movement.  So, mix up your exercise routine and come bowling at Main Event …for the exercise (wink wink). 

We recommend 30 minutes, 3 times per week.
