In the spirit of World Cup Soccer, here is a little tid bit of information;
Did you know that in an average soccer game players will cover between 10 to 15 km, and burn approximately 1400 calories per game?
Soccer is a good game to play to help build your overall health and wellness because it is ‘interval training.’ You can get more results with less time and less damage to the body with interval training versus the ‘long and slow’ type of exercise.
Pick up a ball, put on your sunglasses and challenge the neighborhood kids to a game of soccer- your body will thank you!
