Hacky Sack

From hacky sack to hula hoops, check out these summer activities and games to help you stay in shape.

Summer Activities - Hula Hoop

Pick up a hula hoop and start twirling or spinning in your backyard, the park or the beach. Hula hoops were a big fad in North America in the 1950s, although similar hoops have been used as a form of fun and exercise as far back as Ancient Greece. Twirling a hula hoop around your waste is great form of exercise and a fun way to workout your abs.


Summer Activities - Hacky Sack

Hacky sack or footbag is the perfect summer sport to play with a group of friends. In hacky sack, everyone works towards a common goal, so it's a cooperative sport, not a competitive one. Form a kicking circle and when everyone touches the hacky sack before it falls, the whole group wins. It's perfect for the theme of summertime chillaxin'. Bring a hacky sack to the beach, summer parties or to summer camp. Hacky sack is easy for anyone to play, you can play it anywhere and hacking is a super aerobic workout. If you can't find a hacky sack, you can just use a rock, a rotten orange or an old sock.


Summer Activities - Skipping Rope

Skipping rope is one of the best ways to get a cardio workout and exercise your leg muscles at the same time. Skip by yourself or get a bunch of your peeps together and play some skipping games. All you need is a rope and a patch of pavement!


Summer Activities - Frisbee

Nothing says summer like throwing a frisbee around at the park or beach. Form a frisbee circle with a group of friends or if you're really ambitious, train your dog to catch a frisbee and play catch with him or her. Throwing a frisbee works your arm muscles and can be a good cardio workout as well.


Summer Activities - Croquet

Croquet used to be a sport played only by super rich people with extremely nice laws - but that's not the case now. Anyone can play croquet, anywhere they want. While playing on a patch of short level grass is nice, it can be even more fun to set up a croquet course that goes through long grass, rough slopes or even hazardous piles of dog poop!
