You have a blast riding your UTV, but did you know riding is good for more than that adrenaline rush?
Riding a UTV is a holistically healthy experience that can bolster your physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual health. It can aid in your social life, serve as a great way to kick-start a romantic relationship, and it does what many forms of entertainment and recreation fail to do year-round: get you outdoors and breathing that fresh air.
If a new UTV or an accessory for your ride is on your holiday wish list, you can entice Santa to deliver by ticking off these many benefits. You may not have even realized that you’re taking advantage of such a comprehensive list of upsides. However, now that you know, you’ll have even more excuses to hit the trails and enjoy time on your UTV.
1. It’s a Great Workout
Much like riding a horse, riding a UTV doesn’t seem like a physical workout, but you likely feel it in your muscles for a few days afterward. It takes balance, stamina, endurance and power to navigate those trails. The intensity of your workout depends on the machine, the trails, the weather and of course your fitness level. It’s truly a full-body workout, complete with an endorphin rush.
2. It’s Meditative
Have you ever zoned out on your UTV (while still being alert and an active driver, of course)? Meditation doesn’t have to take place in the lotus position while Yanni plays in the background. It’s a means of focusing your mind and getting to that sweet spot where you’re on a natural high. Being outdoors and doing something you love can get you on the fast track to a meditative state.
3. It’s Social
You should never go UTV riding alone, and that rule makes UTV riding a social, active sport. Whether you have a passenger or not, keeping an eye on your friends who share the trails with you naturally encourages camaraderie. Pair it with dinner and drinks afterward, and you’ll find yourself with quite a healthy social life.
4. It Heats Things Up Romantically
Who thought up movies as a great date idea? If you really want to heat things up, throw some adrenaline into your date. Taking your paramour on a ride, either by sharing one UTV or using separate ones, makes for a memorable experience. Up the romance factor by packing a picnic lunch. If your date is already into UTVing, great — but if not, it’s a fantastic way to introduce him or her to one of your passions.
5. It Connects You With Nature
No matter where you live or what your lifestyle entails, everyone can do with a little more outdoor love.
