Summer Sports to Keep in Shape

Swimming is a great way to stay in shape and keep your bod cool during the summer.
Swimming

Summer vacation is almost here, which means sun, sand and no P.E. class! Instead of vegging on the couch all summer, try out one of these cool sports that'll keep you in top shape all summer long.

Summer Sports - Swimming

If you want to work out and stay cool at the same time, swimming is where it's at. Regular swimming builds endurance, muscle strength and cardiovascular fitness. Plus, it's the perfect activity for peeps who want a ripped upper body.

Summer Sports - Beach Volleyball

If you're a cheerleader, dancer or gymnast during the school year, beach volleyball is a great activity to keep your body toned and firm during the summer. Playing volleyball is a total body workout that improves your hand-eye coordination and reflexes. The sand provides resistance to make this workout extra tough. And remember, if you're playing sports in the hot summer sun, always wear a hat, sunscreen and drink tons of water. You don't want to pass out from heat exhaustion or barf from sunstroke.

Summer Sports - Inline Skating

If you're planning to join the track team next fall, toss on some Rollerblades to keep in shape this summer. Inline skating burns as many calories as running and keeps your heart and lungs in shape too. Don't forget to wear your helmet, knee pads and other protective gear!

Summer Sports - Bike Riding

You may not have gone bike riding in a long time, but what better way to get around town than on a bike? You won't have to bug mom and dad all the time to drive you places and you'll be getting a great leg workout everytime your feet hit the pedals. If you're looking for a bit more of a challenge, why not get your pals together and build some jumps and ramps?

I think we all go through it,  I am right now. Keep your chin up, smile on, and remember that to be mean these girls have to sink pretty low, and if they are bullying you, YOU ARE ABOVE THEM!!!!! Keep your friends close, never forget to be who you are (as cheesy as it sounds, thats what I did and now I am really happy with loads of friends. I also told a teacher, she sorted it all out pretty quick to.) . Last thing-tell a teacher. I did, and she talked to the mean girl. Now everyone knows I'm not afraid to do it, either. Bad times will pass, and good ones will come. Look after yourself. Xx. *virtual hugs*

Sure, I wear them a lot.  As long as you're not wearing the really tight kind, which should go with a dress or skirt or something, it's totally cool.
