What does that number represent? You guessed it – The average number of calories burned per round when walking golf. That's where the conversation begins but that is not where it ends.
721 – That's just the beginning. So, what else is there, might you ask? It's about the increase in heart rate you experience over the 6 mile trek, traversing from shot-to-shot. It's the psychological impact, staying in the moment, and present through 18 holes. The frequency of movement, and steady pace, keeping you limber and feeling great, while experiencing a higher sense of accomplishment, when sinking your final putt. It's about an elevated sense of comradery, playing the game as it was designed to be played.
This is more than going out and playing 18, it's a lifestyle. And with courses experiencing as high as 300% increases in rounds walked, it's catching on. Whether it's the avid 75 year-old playing 4 rounds per week, or the young buck, 18 year-old, who just picked up the game, players around the country are making the switch. As a community, let's keep inspiring, and sharing this way of play.
At the end of the day, it's about our health. Doctors recommend we expend 2,500-3,000 calories per week. How are you hitting your weekly goal? What does your lifestyle entail? Are you walking four rounds per week, or mixing it up with other active lifestyle passions? We would love to know!
721 is a fantastic number but it is your voice, your stories, that inspire us. The movement is on!
