Best Workouts for Thrill Seekers

Thrill seekers are normally active people. Think about it, there aren’t any thrill seeking adventures that you can do from your couch. This makes it easy to get a great workout while taking on an adventure. Most thrill seeking takes place in nature.

Nature and fitness go together naturally as it’s hard to be lazy and avoid exercise when you’re out and about in the great outdoors. If you are a thrill seeker looking to get some exercise here are some workouts you can get while getting a rush.

Swimming in Deep Water

Last summer I got into swimming in a major way. It started out with me getting some great exercise in the pool, but ended up with me swimming in the deep waters of the ocean. Swimming in deep water gave me a great rush in addition to a great workout.


The adventure of knowing that the only thing keeping you from death is your ability to keep yourself afloat should appeal to all thrill seekers. The exercise I got from this deep water workout was far more fun due to the sense of adventure.

Swimming in general is a great workout to exercise your entire body, and swimming in a huge body of deep water kept my mind far more stimulated than swimming back and forth in a small kidney shaped pool. For all you active thrill seekers out there, you can mix things up with some great underwater swimming.

Rock Climbing

Rock climbing is a great workout opportunity for the exercise enthusiastic thrill seeker. As you would imagine, rock climbing delivers a great exercise packaged in a great upper body workout. What people do not think of is all the leg exercise involved with rock climbing.

Rock Climbing

You may grab the rocks with your hands but if you are going to last long enough to get some elevation, you will need to grab with your hands but use your legs to pull your body up. Rock climbing is a great adventure for thrill seekers and even a better workout.

Rock climbing will get your heart pounding before the workout without any exercise. Rock climbing is one of the very best workouts a person can get, which makes the adventure a huge bonus to the thrill seeker. For those whom are not thrill seekers but want to experience the intense full body workout that rock climbing offers, you can go to an indoor climbing wall where you can get all the exercise of rock climbing without the risk.
