While most people are happy to put their high-school days behind them, no longer participating in sports can be a surprisingly disappointing loss. For some people, sports were the epicenter of their social life—for others, they were simply a way to stay fit and blow off steam. Whatever the situation may have been for you, losing such a major lifestyle component is jarring and can have negative repercussions on your social life and your fitness. Even if you weren’t a team player in high school, adult coed leagues provide structured fitness that is actually fun. Need convincing? Read on for our 3 favorite reasons to join in.
1.) Get out of your comfort zone.
You go to work, you go to drinks with coworkers, you go home…and repeat. Working the 9-5 can majorly downgrade your spontaneity. League sports will force you to push yourself (hello competitive nature) to try new things. This is the time to finally try kickball or live out your quarterback fantasy with a little flag football.
2.) Be Social.
League Sports force you to be social, period. You’ll meet people outside your sphere. And singles be warned—a lot of people have found "the one" literally playing the field.
3.) Work out without feeling like you’re working out.
This is self-explanatory, but what makes sprinting more motivating than scoring a winning goal? Your resting heart rate will thank-you, and it won’t even feel like a chore.
